The start of Heisterkamp. Heisterkamp started out as a beverage trader.
In this year, a first investment was made to purchase a lorry. Up to that time, a horse and wagon were used to transport beverages.
This created the foundation for the current Heisterkamp company. The business concept of Heisterkamp as beverage trader was expanded.
In this year, the main focus changed to transport.
Heisterkamp obtained an international transport licence making trips abroad possible. The licence was just as expensive at the time as a whole lorry.
Heisterkamp Trailerverhuur B.V. was established.
Until this year, Heisterkamp was located at the Stationsplein. After six years, the premises became too small and the company moved to the building on business park de Hanzepoort.
In this year, the Travemünde site was opened and Heisterkamp Transport GmbH was set up to enable Heisterkamp to provide an even better service from this branch.
