Our success story explained

Campine is a market leader in sustainably produced raw materials and ecologically responsible waste treatment with maximum recycling of raw materials. We are also a listed company, yet at the same time a modest Kempen-based business with a typical SME mentality.

Despite this seeming contradiction, our results are quite impressive. We are very proud of the facts and figures we can present about our sustainably produced raw materials, our company and our efforts on behalf of the circular economy and the environment.
