What does the name Engibex represent?

We are a Belgian hi-tech engineering consultancy company with a focus on R&D and product innovation. All these different elements are part of our DNA, which we implemented in our name.
Since you will never have a second chance to make a first impression, we picked our name – like we handle all our activities – meticulously and thoroughly.

Find out what Engibex stands for:


We start with the most obvious reference,  you probably figured this one out already…

With ‘Engi’ we refer to our core business: engineering.
We are specialized in mechanics, mechatronics, electronics, electrical and embedded systems and product engineering in general. 
Engibex supports its customers throughout the product life cycle, from feasibility studies and design until the industrialization of products.

Therefore are all of our consultants highly skilled and educated engineers (at the very least Masters, PhD or Post Phd), but nonetheless, our true strength lies in our ability to roll up our sleeves and be a real entrepreneur which has everything to do with the second part of our company name.


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 centimetres,  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 centimetres 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.

As mentioned we’re a Belgian engineering consultancy 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 in engineering throughout the whole process. That’s how we roll.
