Which is the richest family in Belgium

Faymonville and Noël among the 500 richest Belgians

The Faymonville family from Büllingen, the Noël family from NMC in Eynatten and also the Müller family from Eupen - they all have a place in the Top 500 list of the richest Belgians recently published by financial journalist Ludwig Verduyn.

Yves Noël from NMC in Eynatten takes 165th place in the ranking

The Belgian financial journalist Ludwig Verduyn has again published a top 500 list of the richest Belgians. These include eight families from the Verviers district. In 118th place is the Faymonville family from Büllingen with a personal fortune of 135.5 million euros. Faymonville is one of the leading manufacturers of trailers for special transport.

The Noël family from NMC in Eynatten ranks 165th. The wealth of the family around Yves Noël is estimated at 97.7 million euros.

At number 283 on Verduyn's list is the Müller family from Eupen, who earn their living by renting out mobile toilets, among other things. Your toilet empire Dixi-Toi Toi rents 170,000 toilets in 31 countries. Her assets are said to be around 52 million euros.

The Detry family from Aubel took 407th place with 34.7 million euros.

As in the previous year, the shareholder families of brewery giant AB-Inbev top the list of the richest Belgians with assets of 52.8 billion euros. That's three billion more than last year. The businessman Albert Frère follows directly behind with 6.2 billion euros. The Colruyt family moved up to third place with assets of 7.3 billion euros.

  1. And how much do these people have left for social causes?

  2. There are also people who donate for social causes and who don't make it big.

  3. Then these supposedly “social” multimillionaires can easily do something for all the people who also have to vegetate in the DG under miserable conditions in the richest country in the world because they are old, weak and sick. Or fell for the drug dealers / alky parties.

    Or for the millions of homeless people in Germany, the animal shelters in Belgium. Or for youth work so that young people in Belgium do not continue to fall into the hands of right-wing extremist pied piper from the Belgian neo-Nazi scene and are protected from hard drugs such as alcopops and crystal meth.

    Well, how about really social instead of just an RTL show and “charity” in the gala press?

  4. A lot of wealth doesn't necessarily mean these people are rich. In order to get the most accurate picture possible, one would also have to know the debt level. Only when you compare the two can you assess the situation correctly. Often it is more appearance than reality.

    (CoR: The person who wrote the comment is not Marcel Scholzen from Losheimergraben.)

  5. Not correct! You can even get into a lot of debt without being forced to belong to the mafia through long-term loans in order to

    a) to have a big party and, like the Greeks, then blackmail Germany for thousands of billions of euros

    b) such as defrauding the tax control office in Belgium, while the borrowed mice in Luxembourg or the Maldives multiply vigorously through compound interest tax-free

    In any case, it is not only the Greek landowners who show an absolutely carefree, mega-rich dolce vita with non-stop parties on the sailing yacht - the ECB study also provided representative evidence that the average Greek (median value) owns EUR 250,000 in residential property while At the bottom of the list, Germany only has an average of EUR 30,000 (with the greatest social inequality in all of Europe).

    Either way, our money is definitely bottom-up.

  6. Instead of judging every rich man as a dirty capitalist, as in the Marxist culture of envy, it should also be said how different people got rich.

    Shouldn't Ives Noël or the Faymonville family be proud of what they have achieved? At first they risked a lot and managed well before the profit came. Shouldn't performance be rewarded? Are the rich automatically unsocial?
    Prosperity comes from work and commitment and not from constant redistribution. Who would still want to do something?
    By law and by law, job-creating entrepreneurs are more social than those who want to steal their money.
    It is not for nothing that the 10 commandments say “you shall not covet your neighbor's belongings”. Envy is one of the 7 main sins of Christianity.

    Dear jealous hammers, if you would win 10 million euros in the lottery, would you also give your money away?

  7. I certainly don't want billionaires' capital. It is not difficult to keep the 10th or ten commandments. Ça va?

    If you've listened to me, you know that not everyone who has a lot of money got it honestly. I cannot judge how it is the case with the individual persons - I also do not want to suspect the worst with the multimillionaires in the DG!

    The fact is, however, that this is clear Christian legal doctrine and not “class struggle” or reinvented by Karl-Marx - capital obliges. Anyone who works a lot should also be allowed to own a lot, d’accord. However, those who have more than they can ever consume to satisfy needs usually have the need to use the surplus for society.

    Anyone who uses equity or even outside capital for market abuse, for corruption or deliberately omits emergency aid where there is need, must take state adjustment measures for refugees, animal shelters, etc.
