Proviron Prioritizes Sustainability and Agility with Dell Technologies

Hello. I’m Wim Michiels (right on the picture), proud CEO of Proviron, a company founded by my father, Leo Michiels, in 1977. Based in Belgium, our company specializes in the development, production, and marketing of chemicals, serving nearly 100 countries worldwide with 7 different business units and a turnover of 100 million euros. We aim to make the world a better place by developing sustainable processes and products in the field of chemistry.

Sustainability. It’s one of our key pillars. It’s literally woven into our DNA. We are determined to reduce the environmental impact of all our products and processes. Our name – Proviron – derives from the words Process and Environment and reflects our commitment to better processes and products for a cleaner world.

Maintaining agility is key and was a real challenge during the COVID-19 crisis, when remote working became a new norm. Jos Bailleul, our ICT manager, emphasizes the importance of agility in IT, and this is where Dell Technologies plays a crucial role.

We began working with Dell when we encountered laptop problems. Switching to Dell resolved those issues, and since then, we have built a strong relationship. Dell Technologies not only provides reliable hardware, but they also have an excellent presales team, and a proactive Account Manager, who advises us on the right technological choices.

Last summer, we had to choose between hyper-converged and 3-Tier for our hardware. Together with our dedicated Account Manager at Dell Technologies, the presales team offered tailored advice which led us to partner with Orbid. The combination of Orbid and Dell ensured smooth implementation and a more secure IT environment.

IT challenges are becoming more and more diverse, with cloud solutions, a variety of software, and users demanding the latest tools. Security is crucial, and as an IT service, we strive to innovate and optimize our processes. Dell Technologies’ ‘Premier,’ online portal, is an essential tool that enables us to order quickly and efficiently.


We work with Dell Technologies on more than just hardware. Our partnership is based on shared values of sustainability and innovation. Together, we aim to lead Proviron and the global chemical industry toward a future with less environmental impact and greater agility. Proviron and Dell?  It’s all about the “chemistry between us”.
