Eswelt Antwerp continues to grow and moves to historic building in city centre

Vibe Group, parent company of Eswelt, takes the next step and moves from Graanmarkt to the National Bank of Belgium. A (more) spacious, authentic and historic building at Leopoldplaats in Antwerp, matching Vibe Group's culture and core values. Besides more space, it offers more opportunities and room to grow.

One of the most successful Vibe Group branches

Vibe Group was founded in the Netherlands in 2011. With the opening of the Antwerp branch four years later, it crossed the Dutch-Belgian national border for the first time. Since this expansion, Vibe Group has experienced tremendous growth in all possible areas and has since become the parent company behind Visser and Van Baars, Spilberg, Tergos and Eswelt. What started as a great opportunity has now become one of our most successful branches.

National Bank represents the values of Vibe Group

Authenticity is one of the core values of Vibe Group. The National Bank of Belgium fits this value seamlessly. The historical appeal of the National Bank building cannot be underestimated. It already exists since 1878 and has reopened its doors after having been closed for about 125 years.

"At Vibe Group, we strive for a professional yet inclusive corporate culture. As an employer, we like to offer our employees a pleasant working environment with plenty of daylight and greenery to energise people. National Bank offers us the best of both worlds. It is both a high-end office space matching our winning mentality and a 'home base' where everyone can be themselves."

Where others saw a challenge, Vibe Group spotted an opportunity

10 years after the renovation, Vibe Group is now the first commercial company to move into this authentic and special building. In terms of maintenance, it required considerable effort. While other organisations considered this to be a major challenge, Vibe Group actually saw it as a great opportunity. In collaboration with two young interior architects, Sophie Peelman and Anouk Taeymans, Vibe Group rebuilt and redecorated their floors from A to Z.

Ready for the future

Our ambition is to be number one in Belgium in IT staffing & consulting. A strong relationship with our employees is key. With our own ‘Vibers’, but also with our clients and IT consultants employed by us. With a spacious lounge and training room, this prime location offers the opportunity for more personal contact and knowledge sharing. Moreover, the premises facilitate the ambitious growth objectives Vibe Group is pursuing.

Vibe Group and Eswelt

Eswelt is part of Vibe Group, a fast-growing international IT staffing & consulting organisation with offices in the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany. The organisation has existed since 2011. Eswelt was founded two years later, as the third of our current four Vibe niche brands. Initially, they were only based in Amsterdam. In 2014, the Antwerp office was added.

Each of our brands focuses on a specific IT niche market:
