History of IHC FUNDEX Equipment

IHC FUNDEX Equipment knows a long history. The brand and products of IHC FUNDEX already got a reputation as of the late sixties when the first machines were manufactured and used on different job sites. At that time there were no suitable machines available for the high torque and cast in situ methods that were developed. IHC FUNDEX Equipment was part of a contracting company (Verstraeten) which carried out piling and drilling jobs all over the world. Apart from their home market which comprised the Netherlands and Belgium they carried out jobs in many parts of Europe and the Middle- and Far East. For that reason the first IHC FUNDEX machine was produced in the late sixties. After collecting more information and experience the machines were sold abroad.


IHC acquired FUNDEX Equipment strategically in 1999. In that way it could strengthen their marketposition in the onshore market for foundation construction. IHC was already active in this market with IHC Hydrohammer®.

After a small reorganization in 2001, IHC started to work with different business units and the new IHC Fundex Equipment B.V. was founded as an independent working business unit as a part of the IHC Merwede group. Since that time a lot of investments are made in the R&D which again have resulted in the launch of a new and modern line of machines like the F2500, F2800, F3500 and F5600. Every day the full team of IHC FUNDEX engineers works to create new and innovative products and improvements which contribute to a higher efficiency of the piling and drilling operations.
