The history of a century-old company ...
DIRICKX is celebrating the 100th anniversary of a successful history in 2021. Bold decisions, a look always on the future and the art of constantly reinventing oneself have made a small 30M2 factory one of the largest French manufacturers of solutions in the service of perimeter protection.
DIRICKX has always followed its own path, believed in its strengths and gave the sector significant impetus with its new ideas.
DIRICKX's threefold facet of fencing, gates and access control helps protect millions of "spaces" around the world, and its success continues to grow. Jacques DIRICKX represented the third generation of the family business; Today Wim DEBLAUWE, loyal buyer of this family business, intends to continue this "success story".
