In December 2017, VPS received certificate of Royal Warrant Holder for Belgium. Our company is proud to have been the supplier of fitness equipment of King Filip for years.

In 2016, the choice was made to sell the fitness and power equipment range on-line as well. After having sold fitness equipment for three decades, both in the shop and in the fitness rooms, the time was ripe to make this range of products available on the Internet in a simple way in a digital catalog.

“Boutique Vanpraet” remained a famous clothing store in Flemish Brabant for years. Around 1979, Frank Vanpraet began to grow in the judo sport and Father Georges Vanpraet expanded his range with sportswear and judo suits. In view of the need of power for judo, son Frank began weightlifting. Then it was still a problem to buy dumbbells and barbells and so Georges saw a new market in the production of discs and barbells. Then the name of the boutique was transformed into “Vanpraet Sport”. The foundation of of VPS International was finally started.

VPS International has a long history who starts around 1931 when Benoît Vanpraet, Georges Vanpraet’s father, already sold all kind of products to the local people. That went from clothing to caps, oil lamps and scissors. Doing business was in the genes. During WW2 it was a very hard period and it was doing business to survive and feed his family. As it was the trend in those years he visited all his customers with his bike, loaded with all kind of things to sell.
