“Finish what you start!” is the VLTT motto. Our stable market position today is based on innovative solutions, and developing and building our own equipment. Equally important of course is the inventiveness, hard work and flexibility of our people. Involvement, responsibility, pleasure in the work and perseverance are core values for us. We combine our passion for pioneering with realistic entrepreneurship and a pragmatic approach. And that is the VLTT vision!

Our techniques

We make use of a variety of machines and techniques. Thanks to the techniques applied by VLTT, drilling can be directed accurately up to a few centimetres, therefore also allowing slight bends to be created. Would you like to read more about our techniques, also at sea? Click here.

About us

Van Leeuwen Trenchless Technology, generally known as VLTT, was established by two brothers, Anton and Ries van Leeuwen, in 1969. One of the first milestones was the development of a drilling machine capable of horizontal drilling, in 1979.
