"A burnt child dreads the fire..."

On 1st April 1982 Antoon and Francien Loverbos started their company Lolaar Spuitgiettechniek BV in their converted farmhouse in Ommel.

In the beginning, they produced amongst others plastic coins for the catering industry. The assortment expanded soon. They had to work hard.

Lolaar kept growing. The 3 employees and 11 machines at location De Stegen were no longer sufficient anymore in 1992. Lolaar moved to De Dwarsdijk in Helmond, a large industrial property (2.800m2). It turned out soon that this building didnít offer sufficient growth opportunities as well.

In 2000 Lolaar moved to a property at De Waterbeemd. Although we have grown a lot, we are still located in this building today. In the meantime, we own a couple of the surrounding terrains as well. We wonder if they will offer enough space for our future expansion.

At the moment we work 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to keep machinery running and deliver customer orders on demand. The number of machines and employees keeps increasing. Itís for the future to show if this location offers sufficient possibilities
for perhaps a next generation?

Below figures show Lolaar grows:
