Belgian bodyshop has been using Glasurit products for 60 years

Bachely-Vanderhaeghen, a garage and bodyshop in Renaix in Belgium has been using Glasurit products for 60 years.

Established in 1958, the company is now in the hands of the fourth generation. At the moment, Olivier Vanderhaeghen is in charge. It handles all types of repairs, from mechanical or electronic repairs to aesthetic repairs and the replacement of damaged parts.

Since its establishment, Bachely-Vanderhaeghen has never ceased to evolve by adopting new techniques and using adapted products, and Glasurit has been part of that since. The family business has never really thought about changing paint suppliers: “If we are 100 per cent satisfied with the products and services offered, why change brands?”, says Olivier Vanderhaeghen.

Of course, such a partnership would never have been possible without a relationship of trust that has grown stronger over the years. For example, when Bachely-Vanderhaeghen began testing Ultra-Violet (UV) products and related technology, not everything went as planned. The UV lamp delivered to them by a third party supplier did not allow them to achieve results commensurate with their reputation and professionalism. However, thanks to the careful internal and external monitoring by Glasurit teams, a solution was quickly found, allowing them to achieve optimal results.
