HandsHero may be a recent range of products, but the Vermandere family already founded a workshop in 1960. What initially started with the repair of farmers' plows, has now resulted in the production of high-quality disinfection pillars and more.
In the early years, Vermandere turned out to be the specialist in made-to-measure hoods in addition to plowing. Where the company was originally located in Heule, the company moved in 1995 to its current location in Gullegem, also in Belgium. In addition to hoods, the production of custom stainless steel furniture and floor channels has also started in recent years. Competences that are still delivering the company's most important products today. After three generations of Vermandere at the helm of the company, Karel Lafosse and Benjamin Vandorpe took over the company on January 1, 2019. The company was merged with their other company Lafosse, which specializes in the design and production of professional custom kitchens. The latest innovation was added to the range in 2020. With HandsHero, high-quality disinfection stations are now also being marketed. An international name to emphasize the growth ambitions. With expertise based on years of experience in stainless steel. Would you like to know more about the Vermandere product range? Then take a look at www.vermandere.be.

In 2023, the activities of Lafosse, Vermandere and HandsHero were consolidated within the LAVA Group BV and Bo Samaey and Björn Callewaert joined as partners within the company.
