At a young age Loek Sr. wants to set up his own business in wire products. In the early fifties, he takes the first steps with Blok’s Draadvorm. In a shed behind the family home Loek Sr begins with the production of wired light fittings. During the next few years Blok’s Draadvorm specializes in developing and producing a wide range of wire products for a broad and diverse customer base.
When the company celebrates its 40th anniversary in 1993, Johan, Philip and Loek take over the company. After the acquisition they start with automating the bending and welding process. By investing in innovation and advanced machinery, Blok’s receives the entrepreneurs prize ‘de Zilveren Ooievaar’ in 1998.
We have been able to maintain this progressiveness and it has given us the opportunity to continue to grow. We want to remain in the lead in technology and we are currently continuing to invest in new production facilities and methods.
