In the 1950s and '60s, Belgium was very well known for its flax industry. We, the Seurynck family, were also active in this industry and had a company processing flax into textiles.
Our company was based in Sint-Eloois-Winkel and was managed by Marcel Seurynck. Later on, his son Paul Seurynck joined the company and helped his father turn the flax business into a successful multinational company.
As a flax-processing company, we had the necessary premises and machinery and we had extensive experience corking with steam and water, which are also the main inputs for EPS technology.
Changes in the economy made shifting towards producing polystyrene foam (EPS) a logical step.
In 1970, Paul Seurynck founded the company Seuropak.
As a result of the booming economy and under pressure from competitors, Seuropak decided to replace its older manual machines with brand-new, high-tech and computer-operated machines.
After many years of success, we moved to new, larger buildings on the Gullegem industrial estate. Over the years, our company has continued to grow rapidly. Paul's son Philip Seurynck also came on board, and together father and son developped Seuropak as one of the leading EPS manufacturers in the Benelux. Recently, Sebastiaan Seurynck, the third generation, also joined the family business.
