The family feeling remains intact
Shortly after World War II, Tinus Verhoeven and his brother started welding up undercarriage parts of earth moving machines. These excavators worked on the reconstruction of the Netherlands. In the following years, the activities of the overhaul and welding company were expanded to include the sale of earth moving machines. Later, through the leadership of son Gerard, exports also began to take shape. With Martijn and Iris, the third generation is now also on board.
With the timeline below, we would like to take you through the developments that have ensured that Verhoeven International is now known as a true quality & knowledge specialist;
