"...bits of history ..."

 

W

ith more than 40 years of experience in foundry engineering and foundry realization projects, it is both fun and rewarding, to every now and then, look back at the early days and early projects. On this page we share some of these moments with you.

The bits of history and excerpts we share illustrate the spirit in which GEMCO was founded by Jan van Gemert. Times have changed; the world has "got smaller" because we travel so easily, distance is no longer an obstacle to keep communication going. We have grown, but we still maintain the original spirit and values to this day, that's what we stand for.

From the book by Jan van Gemert, “The first thirty years”: first project in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, in 1979. The foundry made spare parts for the local market and had a capacity of 100tn of foundry products per year... In comparison: the last project in which Jan van Gemert was involved, was for a capacity of 75,000 tons per year.

The local press made news of the economic effects of the new factory.
