D’Ieteren

D’Ieteren belongs to D’Ieteren Group, a family-controlled investment company, listed on Euronext Brussels (member of Bel 20 index) and owning 5 activities articulated around strong brands, i.e. Belron, D’Ieteren, Moleskine, D’Ieteren Immo and TVH.

D’Ieteren is the largest independent importer of Volkswagen brands in Belgium and has a history of 70 years of partnership with the brand.

With around 1.2 million vehicles on the road, D’Ieteren is the 1st importer and retailer of vehicles in Belgium and owns the largest car park, which represents a leading market share of 23,4% in 2021.

D’Ieteren manages a strong network of independent dealers across Belgium and operates dealerships on the Brussels-Mechelen-Antwerp axis. To complete its offering, the company sells used vehicles (My Way and Audi Approved+) and provides maintenance, financing and leasing services through VDFin, a joint venture with Volkswagen Financial Services.

D’Ieteren has been a major player in mobility for the last 200 years. This historical legitimacy positions D’Ieteren as a privileged player in tomorrow’s mobility solutions. Thus, D’Ieteren is going through a strategic transformation evolving beyond a retailer/importer towards a broader provider of mobility solutions. Committed to mobilizing the future, D’Ieteren is continuing to develop a wider catalogue of products and services linked to mobility, going far beyond marketing and selling vehicles.

D’Ieteren’s vision is to ‘Improve the lives of citizens through fluid, accessible and sustainable mobility’. The transition from selling vehicles to offering mobility solutions requires a significant shift in mindset and a relentless focus on customer experience and satisfaction.

D’Ieteren employs about 2.000 people. In 2021, D’Ieteren posted a turnover of €3.2 billion and the adjusted operating result reached €102.7 million for around 50 entities to be consolidated.
