Our personal approach

History

The van Puijenbroek family has a long history in the Dutch textile industry. The foundation was laid by Hendrik van Puijenbroek, who founded the textile factory H. van Puijenbroek in 1865. He was a pioneer in his approach. He pursued a social policy for textile workers and introduced factory weaving.
