1969 After a career as a sales agent in the fasteners industry, Mr. van den Broek establishes Albema Bevestigingsmaterialen (Albema Fasteners) in February 1969. Superior product and service quality have been basic values since the foundation.
1980 In order to acknowledge the ever-growing demand for stainless steel fasteners, Robema Roesvrijstaal (Robema Stainless Steel) is founded. Robema is a pioneer in the Dutch market, by offering a complete range of high-grade stainless steel fasteners at a competitive price level.
1984 Albema Bevestigingsmaterialen en Robema Roestvrijstaal decide to join forces and continue under the name Albema-Robema B.V.. At this moment one of the most all-round and best sorted suppliers of fasteners in the Netherlands is created.
1984 Albema-Robema B.V. starts delivering fasteners according to the two-bin system. By being one of the first on the Dutch market to start these JIT-deliveries, Albema-Robema B.V. is once again one of the pioneers. We have never given away our leading position.
1991 To offer optimal logistical support to our customers in Limburg and Belgium, a branch office in Maastricht is established.
1994 To further expand the reach of our own distribution network, Hengelo in Overijssel is chosen as the city to locate the third Albema-Robema B.V. branch.
1997 Albema-Robema B.V. obtains the much desired ISO 9002 certificate. Quality management has always been one of Albema-Robema B.V.’s main focuses. As of 2003 we therefore are in possession of the ISO 9001 certificate.
2006 As a result of the steady growth throughout the years, the Helmond-based headquarters is spread out over three locations. In 2006 all activities in Helmond are therefore centralized at the newly acquired building at the Vossenbeemd 112a.
2008 After 39 years Mr. van den Broek is succeeded as director-owner by Mr. Mulder. This means Albema-Robema B.V. remains a family business and a reliable, flexible partner for all its (potential) customers.
2009 Albema-Robema B.V. celebrates its 40th anniversary. In this period is has grown to be the leading, reliable and all-round partner in the fasteners industry.
