On 25 April 1955, the company was founded and seated in the heart of Rotterdam at the Bolwerk. At this time the only activities were sales of hydraulic jacks, rolling and small tools for the automotive industry and repair.
In 1958 the company moved to a larger building of approximately 200m2 in the Fabrieksdwarsstraat in Rotterdam with a small workshop for all kinds of hydraulics. Since 1960 the sale of hydraulic products had grown enormously and from that time on several well-known hydraulic brands were sold and repaired. In de following years the company continued to grow and in 1970 it moved to Vlaardingen, a city at about 10 minutes from Rotterdam in the middle of the Europoort. A building of 850m2 was bought, with a workshop of 200m2 equipped with lathes, drilling, sawing, welding and testing machines.
In 1990 the company moved to its present location of 2200m2, featuring a large sales department, an entire new workshop for special new building, assembly and repair of cylinders, pumps, power units, low and high pressure hydraulics, a service-workshop and a new warehouse for parts and seals in order to be able to work with more efficiency and to offer our clients more support and service.
