Doornbos’ 80th Birthday!

On the Sunday 1st July Doornbos Equipment celebrated their 80th birthday .

First opening their doors over 80 years ago in 1938, Doornbos has continued to grow.

Starting out dealing in fruit and vegetables, then expanding to dealing in heavy equipment for the reconstruction after the war.

Doornbos remained a family business and by 1980 saw the grandchildren of John Doornbos (founder) take the reins.

Each grandchild took over their own part of the company, with one specialising in crane rental.

10 years later in 1990, under the name of Doornbos Verhuur BV, the company started the rental of boom lifts, forklift trucks and telescopic handlers.

In 2000, the company expands its horizons again and welcomed the rental of high-pressure and vacuum equipment. The name Doornbos Verhuur BV is changed to Doornbos Equipment BV.

By 2014 the fourth generation of Doornbos’ continue the company together, growing from strength to strength.

To celebrate its 80 years of success, Team Doornbos celebrated with a party on Friday 29th June.

This party was to thank and celebrate all of Doornbos’ employees, customers and suppliers for all their hard work over the years.

If you would like to see photos from the party, they can be found on all our social media sites.
