Bijlsma Group was founded in 1941 by Mr. Douwe Bijlsma, over the years his son Mr. Jaap Bijlsma (1924-2006) and later grandson Mr. Frits Bijlsma (1954) took over the family business. In 2018 Mr. Roderick Jacob Bijlsma (1982) took over the company from his father Mr. Frits Bijlsma, who is still active within the organization as Supervisory Board Member.
During the last decade Mr. Roderick Bijlsma has independently established an organisation specialized in moisture protection technology and load security equipment RJB International. The acquisition of Bijlsma Amsterdam – specialized in niche packaging and lifting equipment, brought significant synergy benefits to the organization . Thanks to that Bijlsma Group can serve its Customers all over the world, with even higher excellence.
After the takeover of Bijlsma Amsterdam in 2018, it was decided to communicate as Bijlsma Group, under which the entities are individually active and serve the customers under one heading.
