Growth

Since Its foundation in 1992, when Fred Baas and René Kalkhuis started a company specialized in springs, Alcomex has always been dedicated to serving customers with smart technical spring solutions. The management buy-in of 2016 by Conrad Hietink and Jelle van Vliet, has been a milestone where we took the strong foundation in industrial and door springs and made significant investments to ready Alcomex for future growth; investments in people, technology, production lines and in opening new sales-, R&D- and production sites.
