After having worked within the Life Science Industry for many years and after being involved – including the high and lows – in several small, medium and large scale greenfield and revamp projects, it was finally time to take matters in our own hands. The jointly aim of 3 senior service providers for creating the correct pragmatic solutions for customers in the Life Science Industry led to the creation of PHéNX BVBA in 2016.


Taking the desired end result (project handover) as a starting point and create a pragmatic solution to organise & manage the entire project lifecycle from the early beginning, avoiding the unnecessary extra’s, Phénx is your flexible and creative project partner.


Deliver the project and solutions through our core values:
we strive to be transparent & loyal. No one-shots but customer satisfaction.
People are the essence! Phénx is your hands-on partner and willing to go the extra mile.

The Phénx team

Rik De Smet

Rik De Smet

Rik has extensive experiences in the (Fine) Chemical industry, from Process- over Project Engineer/Manager up to Maintenance & Technology Management. Always at the client-side from Petro-Chem to API units. "In 2008, I shifted to the contractor side to provide correct and cost-effective support. Before starting with PHéNX, I founded a new branch Office for a German engineering & construction contractor and doubled a local engineering contractor in 2 years. My passion? Working with people!"

Jan Marchand

Jan Marchand

Jan aka “the Pharmacist”.
I have extensive experience within the Pharmaceutical Industry.
My creative and pragmative mindset was the basis for the setup of commissioning/qualification/validation (CQV) and handover strategies for several projects and for over 15 years I led multiple CQV project teams.
I am passionate about sports (basketball in particular), gastronomy, ecological building and of course the Buffalo’s!

Eric Antoine

Eric Antoine

Eric fell into a technical pot.
He is considered a ‘Swiss knife’ with expertise in multiple technical and industrial fields for more than 34 years. My motivation? Find the solution to the problems and move on. My pride? To have a tight team for which the satisfaction of the customer is a primary goal. A definite love for energy-savings and ecology but above all priority to mechanical sport and my Hammer Ball 8.
