We, Niels Heusinkveld and Svend van der Vlugt, grew up with some of the best racing simulation software of that era. Accolade Grand Prix Circuit, Papyrus Indianapolis 500 and Microprose Formula One Grand Prix were the titles we spent a lot of our spare time with. This fostered our passion for both racing simulation as well as for real racing which continues up to this day.
Out of this passion combined with the ambition to professionalise simracing products, Niels laid the foundation stone of Heusinkveld Engineering back in 2013.
Until today we are still uncompromised to our mission „Feel like you’re driving a real racing car “. Not just a simulation, not just a game – our products should feel as realistic as possible.
As a pioneer in the market we developed to a leading manufacturer of advanced cuttingedge simracing products. We attach great importance to local production here in the Netherlands and consciously select our suppliers in accordance with our high standards of quality and durability.
With a team of currently 27 experienced engineers, assembly and logistics employees, floormanager, purchaser, accountmanager, support specialists, marketeer and associated freelancers we supply our loyal customers all over the world. That is why we proudly say all our products are „designed and assembled“ in our own production facility in Groningen.
Our highly coveted products such as the Sim Pedals Ultimate and Sim Pedals Sprint combine high performance with market leading designs. They are today used by both professionals and enthusiasts to optimize their training and reach excellence in races. This includes many teams and drivers active in series such as Blancpain GT, Formula Ford, Formula E, Formula 3, Formla 2, Indycar and Formula 1.
Innovation, development and consistent high-quality are top priorities for the Heusinkveld team. Durability is a key requirement for all materials which are used by Heusinkveld. We don’t mind admitting it – we’re detail-oriented. Every accessory, from the foot plate to the spring and rubbers to the bolt, has been thought through and tested by us down to the last detail.
Our product designs are based on our own integrated kinematic & force models and techniques such as Finite Element Analysis. We develop also our own automated testing equipment which simulates intensive long-term use in a short period of time. That allows us to rapidly validate prototype designs for the most demanding use cases.
This approach results in products which offer more adjustability and durability. Our loyal customers all over the world appreciate precisely this special difference to other products on the market.
We place a high value on satisfied customers. They are the basis for our success. This includes not only our demand for excellent product quality but also our support, which is always available for all individual questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here at our headquarter is also a demonstration room with simulator setups where you usually can test all Heusinkveld products and get tips from our professionals. We can’t wait to welcome you soon again.
