Trust Digital, create wonderful things
"We are the Trusted Guide to your digital journey, so you can create wonderful things" – that is our mission. The growth strategy of every organisation today must have a digital component. Business, strategy and ICT cannot exist without each other.
Imagine the crucial processes in your organization without ICT, without digital and online components... How do you find new employees today? How do the communication and collaboration within your company work? How will customers find you? How can you offer them a better service? How do you protect the most important (digital) assets of your organization? ... ICT is crucial and that's what it needs to be on point.
The IT paradox
ICT feels easier than ever and employees can work with versatile tools that increase their efficiency even without any specific training. But behind the scenes the environment and its management is becoming increasingly complex.
How do you keep your systems up and running continuously, without downtime? A failure today guarantees technical unemployment and a loss that quickly rises in the tens of thousands of euros. How do you allow your employees to work together efficiently, wherever they are? How do you optimise your online presence? Hacking is Big Business: how do you protect your data and privacy?
Over 25 years the preferred ICT partner of companies, care institutions, schools and governments.
From our offices in Turnhout, Geel and Mechelen we offer sophisticated solutions in hybrid/cloud infrastructure, Security, Storage, Networking & Internet, Clients & Printing, Mobile... and Applications to work more efficiently such as Dynamics, Office365, Sharepoint and IoT development.

Van Roey Automation becomes Van Roey ICT Group
'Van Roey Automation' was founded 25 years ago by Pat Van Roey and a lot has changed in the meantime.
Today, Pat still owns and manages the Van Roey ICT Group. Pat quit his job as an engineer at Philips in Turnhout to sell computers from his garage. First part-time, but then quickly full-time, with a team around him.
Van Roey Automation started from the Wieltjeshoeve on the Steenweg op Merksplas. Enormous growth justified a move to the current head office in Kempenlaan 2 in Turnhout. Later, branches in Geel and Mechelen followed under the name VanRoey.be.
Continuously in motion
What started out as a service company for both private and professional users, evolved into a focus on business customers. First mainly clients (such as PCs, laptops, tablets and printers ...), but soon also infrastructure, security, cloud, mobile, applications and services.
The company grew year after year, and Pat and his team succeeded in recognising trends on time and in adapting services accordingly. The company was commemorated several times: innovation and agility are of paramount importance to us, and this is unavoidable in our sector.
Van Roey ICT Group
In 2011, Van Roey Automation merged into the Van Roey ICT Group. Today, the Van Roey ICT Group consists of several companies.
Start of new construction
2020 was an eventful year, but the solid growth figures - both in terms of clients and staff - revealed the need for a new building. The works started in November 2020, the 100% energy-neutral building will be commissioned at the end of 2021.
Sustainable & committed
The Van Roey ICT Group is part of the world. We believe it is important to commit ourselves to society in which we operate and the environment.
There are two main pillars;
- We minimize our footprint by reducing our CO² emissions and by making other companies aware of sustainable business practices through the use of technology;
- We invest part of our profits and expertise back into society.
However difficult it may be to say no sometimes, we cannot help everybody. That is why we have made a number of clear positive choices:
- We support initiatives that stimulate entrepreneurship and working with technology and ICT;
- We support initiatives that stimulate (inclusive) sport, health and innovative care.
- In doing so, we prefer long-term partnerships.
We have a big heart for charities that put health first, preferably initiatives that support sport and health for people with physical or mental disabilities. When a link is made with new technologies - our core business - then we are completely enthusiastic.
Laptops for Digital For Youth
When, in March 2020, schools were forced to close due to the coronavirus COVID-19, there was a significant problem: many schools switched to a system of 'preteaching' for the application of new teaching material, but not all underprivileged families had the appropriate material at their disposal.
Vanroey.be therefore donated more than 50 laptops to High Tech Campus Turnhout (HT²O), the Sint-Pieters Institute in Turnhout, KOGEKA (Catholic Education Geel-Kasterlee), Sint-Jan Berchmanscollege Mol, VIBO De Ring in Turnhout and Stella Matutina in Wuustwezel.
