Diacom celebrates 40th anniversaryPublished 22/11, 2019 at 16:52
Hoofddorp in the Netherlands based Diacom was founded in November 1979 by Albert Conijn and Peter Mohar in response to the market need for high quality diamond tools for professional concrete drilling and concrete sawing companies.
The strength of the company was, and still is, that it manufactures in-house, meaning that the company is able to respond to any need for bespoke products quickly, with high levels of customer service.
Manufacturing began with 5 employees in Hoofddorp. Growth saw the company move ten years later to a new purpose built facility, also in Hoofddorp. Development of the business saw Peter Mohar replaced by Loek Beuke, with a more professional organisation for the business. Albert became responsible for sales, Loek for internal operations and Casper Welman being responsible for administration and finance. Diacom is a real family business with the children of Albert and Loek now working at the company with Eric and Rob Conijn working in sales, with Linda Beuke working in administration and human resources.
In order to steer growth in the right direction, a new office building was acquired, providing extra space, including a showroom for products and services. This move reinforced Diacom’s ability to strengthen its position in the market and with the arrival of Tobias Idsinga as general manager and financial director, ensured that innovation is high on the agenda. A web shop been created, helping to ensure that in terms of product development, customer needs are constantly being met. The company now employs 24 people and is led by Rob and Tobias on a day to day basis.
For 40 years Diacom has delivered a customer focused service and is a now considered to be a highly versatile partner for professionals in concrete drilling and concrete sawing. It is able to supply bespoke solutions due to its many years of experience, providing the right solution. The flexible nature of the company means that it is able to cater for both small and large projects, with in-house manufacturing ensuring rapid delivery times and a high quality product.
