About us

May we introduce Prove Engineering?

Prove Engineering B.V. was founded in 2015 by Jos van der Gugten and Elwin Sparreboom to provide process engineering and project management (consultancy) services to businesses active in the chemical, food, feed and pharmaceutical industries. Based in Dordrecht, the Netherlands, we are primarily targeting potential clients in these industries in North-Western Europe.

Jack of all trades, masters of some

At the risk of sounding nerdy, we are fond of process engineering and love to make our mark delivering projects with a major process engineering aspect. While process engineering and project management is our bread and butter, through experience we also know our way around adjacent fields of engineering. We will liaise with other engineering disciplines, suppliers and contractors without compromising our independency: no subcontracting or retail partnerships.

We are up-to-date on standards

We like to challenge the status quo and preconceived ideas and try to stay in touch with standards, best practices and new technologies, not just because we think it is in the best interest of our clients but also out of personal interest. For example, we’re actively participating in the European Hygienic Engineering & Design Group (EHEDG) and the Hygienic Design Network (HDN) and have expertise in applying its methodologies.

We take project ownership

Ideally, we start working on an engineering project from its initial conception and support our clients through all engineering stages to commissioning and hand-over. We only get into the details if/when it is in our client’s best interest, in order to provide a swift and cost-effective engineering service. Horses for courses.

We excel by working on-site

Staying close to our clients helps us to ensure that we stay aligned with expectations and to stay on top of scope, timeline and budget. Working with people from the board room to the shop floor keeps us on our toes and helps us rally support and deliver projects promptly. Football players excel on the field; not on the bench.

We are looking forward to start a new project.
