“The whole company runs more smoothly thanks to fiberglass”
Published on 08/02/2019 in Customer Stories
Fast-response business applications and the availability of real-time surveillance images are just two of the advantages that Watertechniek Teunissen experienced when they opted for fiberglass.
Watertechniek Teunissen specializes in pump systems and water management techniques. The company has sites in Hasselt and Overpelt. It also has sister companies in Arendonk and Oud-Turnhout. “All our IT is centralized in Overpelt,” says Erwin Cuppens, a partner at Watertechniek Teunissen. “All the applications run there, from cash till systems and the webshop to camera surveillance.”
This configuration relies heavily on the performance and availability of the network connection. “We often had problems in the past,” Erwin Cuppens goes on. “Sometimes it took ages to print a purchase order in the shop and the video surveillance images were seriously delayed, simply because the data went back and forth to Overpelt via a conventional internet line.”
“Speed is essential in our sector. We have everything in stock to be able to serve customers immediately.”

To resolve the lack of stability and performance, Watertechniek Teunissen switched to Internet Pro+ FullFiber from Proximus: a fiberglass connection with a fixed IP address and unlimited internet access, a download capacity of 350 Mb and an upload capacity of 50 Mb. “The difference compared with the way things used to be could not be greater. The line is perfectly stable. There is no longer any latency.”
All the staff now have easy access to the business applications on the central server and the webshop is also developing into an important sales channel. For Watertechniek Teunissen, the switch to fiberglass was a logical choice. “Speed is essential in our sector. We have everything in stock to be able to serve customers immediately. The digital side of things just had to keep up.”
