NL: Buitendijk & Slaman celebrates 50th anniversary

This week, Buitendijk & Slaman celebrate her 50th birthday. February 17th 1972, Jan Buitendijk and Loek Slaman started selling lifting installations for the shed from Waddinxveen and Rotterdam. In 1975 the company established in Bleiswijk and made it possible to grow even more. By the time they expanded with harvesting and transport systems for tomatoes, cucumbers and peppers. In 2002, were Edwin Sol and his wife Yvonne Buitendijk able to assume the company’s leadership and they continued to expand the company together. Since 2006, the company is established on its current location in Bleiswijk.

Edwin sol:’’ The market is internationalization more and more. Our worldwide projects are bigger every single day. In order to be able to follow this evolution, it’s logical to establish a new collaboration. Last year, Buitendijk Slaman has been taken over by Taks Handling Systems. This acquisition has resulted in a further growing assortment of products by the entire group. There is more room for growing nationally and internationally. This allows us to guarantee growth and development. And as we would say; ‘’Quality makes the difference’’.’’
