Kooiman was founded in 1912. Up till 1993 it was known as: 'Tank fabriek Kooiman & Zonen'. The company culminated during the building of the ‘Botlek petrochemical district’ late fifties & early sixties.
The market demand peaked during this period. After the Botlek plants were built, the market demand went down fast. Tank fabriek Kooiman was strong and flexible enough to remain a reliable supplier. Even during the difficult times of the economic crisis of the early eighties as well during the early nineties.
In October 1993 Tank fabriek Kooiman was taken over by the current owner. A new and improved strategy was used and with that, ‘Kooiman Apparatenbouw B.V.’ was born. The same company, a new name and narrowed down focus proved to be the key to success. This narrow focus has enabled us to become a knowledgeable and specialized manufacturer.
