History: then and now
1962 – Gerhard Spikker founded Spikker Specials
Founder Gerhard Spikker started the Spikker Specials family business in the eastern part of the Netherlands back in 1962. Right from the start, Gerhard believed in specializing in the production of complex spare and wear parts. Gerhard was convinced that superior quality was possible only by using the very best, globally available materials. He thus laid the foundation for the basic principles that still underlie Spikker Specials’ philosophy today: no mass production of machine parts but continuous innovation and absolute top quality.
1986 – Hans Spikker takes over at the helm of the family business
At the young age of twelve, Hans Spikker, Gerhard Spikker’s son, was introduced to all the aspects of production, sales, and management at Spikker Specials. Having gained all that knowledge and experience over the years, he was able to take the helm of the company after Gerhard Spikker’s death in 1986.
Hans Spikker came in with the ambition to further grow the company. Together with his colleagues, he developed and perfected the company’s vision. He invested in state-of-the-art machines and new production techniques. On top of that, he saw to it that his employees gained more knowledge of new, exotic materials. In order to guarantee outstanding quality, the production area was fitted with an HVAC system.
