About us

“we are not the only one, but we are the first”

Hamevac has been a leading company in the field of vacuum technology for more than 35 years now.

Our founder, Hans van Nifterik, was present at the start of all developments in the field of vacuum technology with regard to lifting up and repositioning concrete elements.

Our founder Hans van Nifterik


We are proud to state that Hans van Nifterik is the inventor of the first paver laying machine with vacuum technology. With this development, he stood at the basis of the general use of vacuum technology in construction and civil engineering.


In addition to the afore-mentioned paver laying machines, Hamevac is also founder of the so-called Compact Vacuum Units.  With the aid of these units, you are capable of relocating all types of concrete elements in a highly flexible manner, independent of machines. These units are easy to use on your excavator, shovel loader or other skilful machine in your possession.


If you prefer one certain type of machine to work with, it is possible for us to incorporate the unit in this machine, driven by the hydraulics of your machine.
