The story began in 1986 when Stephan Conter decided to start a small trading stables. Initially located in Londerzeel, he moved to Meise a year later, to a 5-hectare equestrian complex that he would subsequently enlarge. By then, Stephex was selling over 1,200 jumping horses a year around the world.
And Stephan was keen for a new project. So in 2005, he launched his own horse truck construction company, a major turning point, as today, Stephex Horsetrucks is the uncontested European leader within the field, with several brands to its name: STX Horseboxes and STX 2 Horses, Equix, AKX and Ketterer. In order to break out of this niche market and win over new clients, he decided to channel this know-how into creating motorhomes and a line of food trucks using his best-known brand, STX.
In 2015, Stephan Conter entered the equestrian international competition circuit by organising two 5* events – Knokke Hippique and the Brussels Stephex Masters – as part of a unique concept. He does not intend to stop there.
As the Stephex philosophy says: “Dreaming without action is meaningless!”
