Tebodin in North America


With a GDP of $ 18 trillion, the US (still) is the largest economy on the planet and attracts a fair amount of foreign direct investment. Many large multinational corporations have their headquarters in the US that offers significant growth to Tebodin.

‘Many of our global clients are either headquartered in the US or have existing or planned operational sites in the country, that seek the same Tebodin services and quality standards that they have become accustomed to elsewhere in the world. All in all a good reason for us to step in and expand our network to the US.’

Based out of St Louis, Hans Kleiboer, who is responsible for Tebodin’s business in North America, is leveraging the existing engineering group of sister company Bilfinger Industrial Services Inc. in order to get off to a flying start. At the same time this will constitute the launch pad for further development and growing the footprint for engineering for Bilfinger in the US.

Focus in the US is on the markets that Tebodin knows very well: specialty chemicals, food & beverage, agro industry, consumer products and industrial manufacturing. Hans: ‘For these markets we provide the trusted engineering, procurement, project management and construction management services but that is not the end of it. We still have another trick up our sleeve in that we can extend the service portfolio by adding construction and maintenance as provided by our sister company.

‘The main name of the game regarding our market proposition is improvement of the production assets of our clients resulting in getting more product and less waste, emissions and energy consumption. Our other trump card is our ability to support US companies in their investment projects overseas utilizing the Tebodin network’, concluded Hans Kleiboer.
