Bekina® Boots bestaat 55 jaar!

voka jubilee

Bekina® Boots bestaat dit jaar 55 jaar! Wat in 1962 begon met de productie van handgemaakte rubberlaarzen, is vandaag een hoogtechnologisch bedrijf dat jaarlijks 600.000 paar hoogstaande, polyurethane veiligheidslaarzen produceert. Naar aanleiding van dit jubileum schreef VOKA een mooi artikel over Bekina® Boots, de wereldspeler uit Kluisbergen.

Bezieler van Bekina® Boots was decennialang Georges Vanderbeke, die de polyurethane (PU)-laars lanceerde en van diversificatie een speerpunt maakte. Na de laarzen volgden veerelementen voor lattenbodems (nu onder Bekina® Indurub) en mengsels voor b2b, zoals brandwerend rubber om kabels te beschermen en zweldichtingen voor de bouwsector (nu onder Bekina® Compounds).
