Vision & mission


A.P. van den Berg observes following trends and developments in the market:

  • Investment and/or construction projects are stretching the boundaries ever further; physically in height, depth, width and length and geographically in less or unexplored areas.
  • As a consequence the soil conditions are an ever-present and even increasing uncertainty.
  • Due to these developments higher standards are required on quality and reliability of the Cone Penetration Testing and of the contractors and suppliers involved.
  • Combined with the increasingly stringent safety and environmental requirements the developments are asking for high-performance equipment and/or systems, more and more tailored to specific customer requirements.
  • Finally the worldwide acceptance of Cone Penetration Testing (CPT) is growing, as a result of which the area of distribution and the field of application will be broadened. 

A.P. van den Berg is aiming to become the worldwide leader in the supply of high-performance Cone Penetration Testing (CPT) equipment for on- and offshore soil investigation.
