Reduced footprint, optimised process efficiency and increased process stability.

Upkeep revolves around implementing targeted and sustainable process improvements for
manufacturers within the chemical and food sectors.

We help companies to optimise their internal and external processes in a sustainable way.
This is how we ensure that manufacturing companies operate more profitably, sustainably and efficiently. Reducing
your footprint, producing more efficiently and increasing your stability: that’s our core business;
that’s where our expertise lies.

With a team of experienced engineers, we unburden manufacturers by making improvements
swiftly. By maintaining one central point of contact, we work transparently. Thanks to our helicopter view,
our projects are designed and supervised effectively. We take care of implementation and training
for internal staff in the fields of maintenance, supply chain, process optimisation and
budget analysis.

Who am I

My name is Jeremy Mertens. I am the founder of Upkeep Engineering.

I have gained a lot of experience as an engineering consultant over my career. For instance, I’ve successfully carried out fantastic and challenging projects for major food producers, including Coca-Cola, Ahold-Delhaize and La Lorraine Bakery group. My experience has given me a broad perspective on optimising maintenance strategies and improving supply chain processes. I always put sustainability and CO-neutral production and delivery at the centre of this. That’s my expertise.

I would be happy to tell you more in a personal conversation:
