About us

AEW or Algemene Elektriciteitswerken [General Electric Engineering] is a dynamic electrical engineering company with approx. 60 employees and a turnover of EUR 14 million.

Since the start in 1985, AEW installs and maintains electrical systems and installations. The area of operation is extensive: from shopping centres to offices, from hospitals to factories, from basic power supply to lighting studies, from data cabling to control processes.

Typical of the working method is that the installations are designed with an eye to the future. Where possible, there are already facilities being implemented which the client can use at a future time.

AEW is available 24/7 so that continuity is guaranteed where problems arise. The own service and maintenance department is staffed by all-round specialists who are in a constant state of readiness in order to remedy malfunctions and to effect maintenance work.

Various professional technical recognitions, such as, amongst others, an approbation for class 6 P1 and the VCA** certificate [Safety Certificate], are an official affirmation of the high quality and safety standards on which clients can count.

AEW is VCA** certificated and has a recognition for Classe 6 P1 and Class 4 P2 P3 S1.


AEW is part of the Democo Group. ‘As a multidisciplinary construction partner, the Democo Group combines the expertise of its people, companies and partners to create added value for the commissioning party and construction project.’ We defined the mission for the Democo Group last year.

In order to achieve this mission, each company within the group must be individually strong. It must be competitive and innovative enough to maintain or improve its position in the market.

When we combine our strengths, we create a distinctive capability. This makes us ‘Individual experts with combined strengths’. This is turn translates into added value for our customers. After all, by bringing together the knowledge of the various companies and being creative, we can make the difference in quite a few projects.


The Democo Group aims to create maximum added value for its customers. In other words, we are ‘The Value Builders’. We achieve this by repeatedly confirming our role as the ultimate construction partner by providing maximum added value for people and surroundings and capitalising on this for the benefit of both customer and company.

Fine-tuned values

In connection with our mission and vision, we have further clarified our values with a baseline. This makes it unambiguously clear to every employee and external business partner what these values mean to us.

  • The customer as partner: earning the confidence to construct based on continuous dialogue
  • More than quality: gladly exceeding expectations
  • Connection: achieving results as a single committed team
  • Integrity: we do what we say and act in an honest and sincere manner
