In April 1970 Ludwig De Coninck, father of the current CEO/owner, established Telerex, initially specialising in electronic components and sensor technology. With offices in Belgium and The Netherlands, Telerex soon acquired the importing rights and representation for a host of international manufacturers of OEM electronics.
This induced a growth spurt that, in its turn, brought on the need for diversification and so, 1983 saw the birth of Rodax, specializing exclusively in sensor technology, followed by the official start of Wonderware Benelux in 2007. The latter being solely focused on the distribution and integration of Industrial software solutions.
2002 saw Yannic De Coninck taking over from his father. Under his management Telerex grew exponentially through the acquisition of several complementary and like-minded European companies in The Netherlands, Belgium and France, resulting in the foundation of the international Eight Lakes group.
Today, Telerex is one of the Benelux strongest and fastest growing importers and distributors of professional electronics, electromechanical and LED components, with over 60 employees, an annual turnover exceeding 30 million EUR. The company is wholly privately owned, with a 40% solvancy and its own headquarters building in Breda, The Netherlands.
