We work on customer enquiry basis, looking for raw materials needed by our customers for existing or new projects. Due to our long time experience and extensive internal database, we can search for the right product and provide the necessary information very quickly. We don’t have a limitative product list as we are always interested in looking for new raw materials, but you can find an informative list of products we handled in the past on the website. Please contact us in case of any new demand, and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
Peter Lippens and Martine Lippens-Florus were working at the company Orffa in Belgium, introducing pharmaceutical raw materials on the European market, mostly for veterinary applications. After Peter’s father Omer Lippens sold Orffa in 1989, Peter and Martine founded Indis NV in Aartselaar, Belgium.
Initially the main focus of Indis NV was the sourcing of veterinary API’s from all over the world, for mostly Belgian and European customers. In time the portfolio was expanded to what are now mostly human API’s, together with excipients and raw materials not only for pharmaceutical industries and applications, but also for food, feed, cosmetic and chemical markets.
Peter’s sister Karla Lippens took care of the administration and bookkeeping from 1992 until 2014. In 2010 Peter and Martine’s son Tom Lippens joined the company, and in 2012 also their daughter Ine Lippens joined the company. Sofie Putnik has been handling the administration and bookkeeping since 2014.
On the 1st of July 2020 Peter Lippens retired, but is still acting in an advisory role outside of the day-to-day business of Indis NV. From then on Tom and Ine took over the company and the managing roles as Chairman of the Board and CEO respectively, with support from Martine as Managing Director.
Since the founding days the vision of Indis NV has remained unchanged as being a service providing company sourcing raw materials required by customers for existing or new projects in different markets. We firmly believe in open communication and an honest and durable relationship with both suppliers and customers, providing the requested information in a timely manner.
Indis NV is a very flexible family company with a personal approach, tailoring to the specific needs of our customers. No matter the nature, involved quantity or additional details of the enquiry, we will always try our best to assist customers in finding the right product at the right time.
