Our company


BSE Ymond is short for Beentjes Service Engineering, founded in 1996 by A. and J. Beentjes. BSE Ymond has become a specialist in engineering and building custom mobile elevating platforms and building innovative special industrial machines. For multiple applications in glass-house construction, rail infrastructure maintenance/renewal and industry, BSE Ymond has designed and build custom made machines in-house. These machines and vehicle are used in the East and West of Europe as well as Canada. We develop new concepts or modify or refit older industrial machinery and vehicles in close cooperation with our customers. BSE Ymond has therefore an outstanding reputation in innovation and developing and building new machines and vehicles.

Our engineering’s department has the most modern resources and methods available for strength calculations and designing new and existing machines and vehicles. All fields of engineering (mechanics, hydraulics, electrics, pneumatics) are carried out in-house, which makes us very flexible and able to respond fast to our customers demands.

Our workshop is fitted with all the right equipment for construction and maintenance activities of many different machines and vehicles of our customers. By keeping communication lines short between our workshop and the engineering’s department, turnaround time is as short as possible.

To provide the best possible service for our customers, BSE Ymond has a number of fully fitted service cars. Any malfunctions of machines or vehicles can be repaired on site or preventive maintenance can be carried out. Even 24 hour service is possible. By providing excellent service, we aim to raise the reliability of our customer’s machinery as much as possible.


BSE Ymond was founded on 10 February 1996 by Anton and Jaap Bentjes. At first machines/vehicles for glazing glass houses were developed and build. In the years to follow, machines/vehicles for building glass houses and putting up shade cloth were also developed. These machines are all equipped with tracks for movement and a scissor package for lifting the platform. Tracks are required in glass house construction, as the ground conditions are always tough. 

Soon, our company had outgrown its original accommodation, and in Januari 2001 we moved to a new location at Waterland 15, Beverwijk. At this accommodation BSE Ymond developed a wide variety of machines and vehicles for all kind of applications and industry. BSE Ymond produces machines and vehicles for a number of industries, the major ones are: glass house construction, railway(maintenance) and general industry. Also existing machines for glass house construction evolved further by automating them for achieving faster construction and better efficiency.

So, BSE Ymond can develop and build custom machines and vehicles for many different purposes. In 2009 our workshop expanded by the addition of a new section. The new section is equipped with two heavy duty 10 ton overhead cranes to be able to build, maintain, repair and modify all kinds of heavy machinery

In 2009, we also and build a new kind of machine, it’s called the HMS MERIP. That is short for Highly-efficient Mobile Segment Maintain, Exchange, Repair, Inspect platform. This machine was developed for the OXYsteelmill 2 of Corus IJmuiden. This machine can be put on the continuous casting machine and lower a working platform into the casting pit. By using this machine, maintenance of the continuous casting machine can be performed more safe and efficient.
