Once upon a time, there was ...

A young man who was intrigued by the properties of rubber. Marinus van Kempen worked in a large rubber factory from an early age and grew in the profession with remarkable speed. In rubber circles, he soon became known as the 'man with the rubber nose'. In 1966, Marinus van Kempen started a rubber company in the shed behind his house. He developed new rubber products like a true inventor. And successfully, too. The shed rapidly became too small and Marinus moved to the Zandhorst, an industrial estate in Heerhugowaard. Moreover, his interest in rubber was infectious, and his son joined him in what was to become the 'family business'.
