Motogroup can count on more than 65 years’ experience 


About Motogroup


As a metal company and dynamic SME, Motogroup has been based in Bruges for more than 65 years. In the beginning, ice cream machines were made for export to Congo. It was quickly switched to the manufacture of conveyor belts and screws. The high demand for concrete (construction of a motorway network in Belgium) forced us later to build cement silos as fast as we could. The design office that was set up by that time supported the demand for customization. Piecework was supplemented with turnkey contracts for bulk material handling systems. With a modern computer-controlled machinery Motogroup succeeded to expand its customer base internationally. Motogroup was taken over by Lybover in 2014. Lybover is an industrial group in Waregem covering 6 SMEs: Keller Lufttechnik Benelux, Keller France, Hafibo, BULK .ID, Luksal and Motogroup.

Today, under Managing Director Jan Soetaert, Motogroup employs nearly 60 people and the company is active in different industrial sectors. 


Advice, design and engineering


Concept and detail drawings are made in 2D/3D whereby the engineers-designers have access to the most current drawing programs.

In addition to its own manufacturing, installations can be extended or provided with all peripherals or extras such as exhaust systems, weighing systems and level detections. Electrification and comprehensive controllers complete a particular installation. This means that the mechanical and electrical assembly can be carried out by Motogroup. Finally, the turnkey contract is delivered with a full technical file including all the necessary operator's manuals and maintenance instructions.

After delivery, a maintenance planning may be drawn up in consultation with the customer. Motogroup is present in several companies for preventative maintenance checks and urgent maintenance. 




Motogroup designs, builds and maintains components and turn-key plants tailored to the customers to mechanically transport and store bulk materials. Motogroup stands for high-quality solutions and wishes to develop long-term relationships with its customers, suppliers and employees.
