De Smet Engineers & Contractors History

Eager to attend the growing demand from its clients for a larger involvement in project implementation, the De Smet Group, supplier for the Edible Oils industry, created DSEC in 1990 with a view to provide the market with a dedicated organisation including multi disciplinary expert teams that are the key to the successful realisation of turnkey projects.

The new company was joined at that time by a team of sugar experts coming from the well-known Abay Engineering Company, opening therefore the way to work on projects involving Sugar & Ethanol from basic engineering to complete factory implementation.

Since then, DSEC has successfully executed more than 400 projects mainly large-scale, ranging from pure management operation to full turnkey contracts. Moreover it has also performed numerous Technical Audits, investment evaluation studies and pre-engineering, from concept to Front End Engineering Design jobs (FEED).

DSEC has then developed the Bio-based industries sector and currently diversifies its activities in two new sectors offering the same range of services that gave the company its strong reputation: the Alt Proteins & Ingredients and the  Agro-Nutrients.

Since 2014, DSEC is fully controlled by Moret Industries Group

DSEC is ISO – 9001 certified by SGS since 2012.
