In 1963, Jacobus Johannes Bayards laid the foundation of what we now know as Bayards Aluminium Constructies B.V. It all started with a small workshop dedicated to the construction of both aluminium and stainless steel in the village of Nieuw-Lekkerland.
Based on the banks of the river Lek, Bayards kept on growing, and started to take its first steps across the border. The projects that came in also grew, as did the markets Bayards was operating in. We started focusing solely on aluminium and over five decades later, Bayards has turned into an internationally recognized household name as manufacturer of complex aluminium structures.
From designing, engineering, manufacturing and installing aluminium helicopter landing platforms to supplying the world's leading super yacht builders with aluminium superstructures and delivering top-notch reconnaissance vehicles for Dutch Defence: Bayards does it all.
Nowadays we have large production and assembly facilities in Nieuw-Lekkerland, Dintelmond and IJsselmonde where our experienced team works on high-quality solutions in aluminium on a daily basis. The state-of-the-art machinery and highly skilled labor combined with 15 sales offices worldwide makes Bayards the perfect partner for complex aluminium structures in any industry, anywhere in the world.
Bayards represents team spirit, craftsmanship, passion, pioneering, quality and reliability and we incorporate these values into our daily work. We are proud of the beautiful products that we make, but even more proud of the people that make this possible and that give 100% each day to make Bayards a huge success. The people – or as we like to call it, the Bayards family – is what makes Bayards, Bayards. Because at the end of the day, without our dedicated team, Bayards would just be a shiny, but empty aluminium hull.
At Bayards, we believe that it is important to know who you are and what you stand for, especially in times of growth.
This translates into six core values that we live and work by
