The Jean Gielen sheltered workshop was founded in 1970 in the form of an ASBL with its articles of association published in the monitor dated 24 September 1970.

The Jean Gielen sheltered workshop was created by the Waremme Lion's Club and was chaired by Jean Gielen. Today, the sheltered workshop remains a main priority of the club which is notably involved in the composition of the executive board.

Modest in the beginning, the Jean Gielen sheltered workshop gradually expanded to what it is today: 120 people over various departments.

Our many partners, customers and suppliers are our best reference. We work with Belgian and foreign partners active in various sectors.
