About us

Uitgeverij VAN IN / Editions VAN IN

Some general information

In 1833 the VAN IN brothers decided to set up a printing house and publish a journal. In the middle of the 19th century, the company started to publish different types of books, including schoolbooks. Ever since, VAN IN has published an enormous quantity of textbooks. Certain editions have even survived many generations of teachers.

Gradually VAN IN has dedicated herself almost exclusively to the production of textbooks and teaching materials. Today VAN IN is market leader in the educational publishing sector in Belgium and has seen a steady growth over the last years. VAN IN publishes dedicated learning materials for primary and secondary education in both regions of Belgium. In Flanders, VAN IN is also active for the vocational and adult education.

In 2001 the head office moved from Lier to the current offices in Wommelgem near Antwerp, from where the dutch speaking market (Flanders) is being serviced. The french speaking market (Wallonia) is being serviced from the offices in Louvain-la-Neuve, south of Brussels. A modern distribution center was opened in Wommelgem, operating for both markets.

VAN IN currently employs over 125 people and has a vast network of over 750 authors.
