Vlerick Group has its industrial roots in Flanders in 1880 in the textile industry. In its present form, it originates from B.I.C. Carpets, a high-end woollen broad-loom woven carpet manufacturer, founded in 1956. The name Vlerick Group only came into being at the end of the nineties when the headquarters were moved from BIC Carpets to its present location in a stately townhouse in Kortrijk.
