Van den Dorpe is a family business that over the years has become a major player in the commercial equipment market. In 1987, the company started from Wortegem-Petegem, as a service point for Linde in East and West Flanders. Fast and excellent service soon became their calling card and to this day remains one of Van den Dorpe’s greatest assets.

The 1990s were very successful and the customer portfolio grew exponentially. Expansion and a move became necessary. In 2004, Van den Dorpe chose to move to an easily accessible, spacious and modern infrastructure in Oudenaarde (N60).

For many years, the company was sole distributor of the Linde brand in East and West Flanders. Since June 2019, Van den Dorpe was no longer part of the official Linde dealer network, but turned their sights wider. New partnerships with quality brands were established. In addition, they also continued to build on their more than 30 years of experience in service and rental.

On January 1, 2023, Van den Dorpe welcomed Linde with open arms and became exclusive distributor for West, East Flanders and Mouscron.
