Looking back

On 4 June 1919, the first advert appeared in the ‘Middelburgsche Courant’ mentioning ‘Electro Machine Smederij’ under the name ‘L. Timmerman’. From that time on, Leonard Timmerman was at the wheel of the foundry and the company received its distinctive trademark. In 1922, the first expansion took place at the Nederstraat in Middelburg. In the 1950s, Max and Henk, the sons of Leonard, became joint owners of the company, taking full control in the 1960s. At that point, their own sons, John, Fred and Leo, also started working at the firm. In 1963, the company moved to the Oude Veerseweg due to a shortage of space. In the 1970s, John took over the company from his father Henk, and the company moved to its current location on the Siloweg in Middelburg. In 2006, son Marc took over the company from his father John, seeing the fourth generation of Timmerman take the wheel of the organisation.

Major steps towards the future

In recent years, we have expanded into a company with a surface area of 5,800 m2, including 2,500 m2 with a workshop for construction machines, a hall for industrial repairs, a separate space for the machining department and a large warehouse.
