What’s in a name?

In our case, a lot!

The truth is, you will never have a second chance to make a first impression.

That’s why we picked our name – like we handle all our activities – meticulously and thoroughly.

All the different elements are part of our DNA and with the following explanation, you will have a unique understanding of our mindset.


This is rather easy, you probably would have guessed it yourself…

With ‘Engi’ we refer to our core business: engineering.

Our consultants are all highly skilled and educated engineers (at the very least Masters, PhD or Post Phd.)

But our true strength lies in our ability to roll up our sleeves and be a real entrepreneur.


There is no better animal that could represent us any better than the Ibex.

Starting with the raw facts; Ibex are wild goats that live in the mountainous regions of Europe, north-central Asia, and northern Africa.

Ibex live in a challenging environment with hard and ever-changing weather conditions, they can live at altitudes as high as 2,500 to 4,500m in the cliffs of the Ethiopian highlands for instance.

The parallel with the perseverance of our consultants, and how they have to adapt to changing, challenging but very rewarding situations, is undeniable.

They have long, curved horns, cloven hooves and are typically about 30 to 170 centimeters,  which has absolutely nothing to do with our employees, rest assured.

In order to survive they must be adventurous and assertive, characteristics that can be found in the entrepreneurial mindset we require from our engineers.

However, their physique allows them to jump more than 180 centimeters straight up without a running start. This helps them climb mountainous terrain with ease. Flexibility is key here.

Furthermore, Ibex are used to live in herds and are very sociable. We encourage and even require an Engibex employee to be a team player who communicates clearly and transparently.

Given the Ibex’ characteristics and our DNA, it seems we haven’t chosen the Ibex, the Ibex has chosen us.


Not only the second letter of the alphabet, yet more importantly the B from Belgium.

We’re a Belgian company, and proud to be so, with activities all over the country and a centrally located office in the heart of buzzing Brussels.


No worries, we don’t want to give you an unpleasant feeling.

By ‘ex’, we mean excellence. We want to excel in our business, but we also want to perform like it and be recognized and appreciated for it.

Excellence throughout the whole process. That’s how we roll.
