We are Kepser, a family business founded on 60 years of expertise and experience. We co-engineer, acquire and process materials. We combine, and we deliver in complete form.
Because we manage all links in the chain, we are always in control. This allows us to guarantee that our customers receive what they order: quality. And that means much more than the physical product itself. Because together:
- we increase the manufacturability of complex constructions
- we increase the speed and effectiveness of work preparation and other processes through smart automation
- lower cost prices by cooperating more efficiently
- and ensure advantageous prices by offering optimum logistic solutions.
Add it all up, and it’s clear that we control the entire chain. And that is something that our clients as well as the Kepser experts and specialists are eager to be part of.
Because we do more with metal. Kepser. Making metal matter.
A rich history
On 1 April 1958 Harry Kepser took over the forge in Sint Agatha (in the eastern Netherlands) where he worked at that time with two others. Under his leadership the company, which until then had mainly concentrated on farriery and agricultural mechanisation, started to produce steel constructions.
By 1962 Kepser needed to expand. A workshop of 20 by 30 metres was built. By this time the company had 10 employees.
In 1968, when Kepser was celebrating ten years of existence, a second workshop was added and extra machines were purchased. The work force had by then grown to 30.
In 1977, the company moved. Kepser could not get a permit to expand further in Sint Agatha, hence the move northwards to ’t Riet industrial estate in Cuijk. This was to a new building with modern machinery.
In 1983, Kepser celebrated 25 years in business. By this time, steel construction and mechanical engineering formed the main part of the activities. With 45 employees, Kepser was producing platforms, stairways, trays, tanks and silos for very varied sectors.
In 1985, the current director Chris Kepser took over from his father. Under his leadership, the business increasingly began to concentrate on the production of modules and intermediate products for OEMs. Kepser Pro-Metaal grew gradually into an all-round supplier, with the emphasis on sheet metalwork and associated profile work.
2008 was a significant milestone: the 50th anniversary. This was celebrated grandly with the ‘Kepser Pro-Metaal Days’. A major expansion project took place that same year. A new production hall arose, bringing the total size of the premises up to 10,000 square metres.
In 2010, Venrooy Cable Equipment was taken over, and it now forms part of the Kepser family.
2017 is a year of major changes. We unexpectedly lose our director, Chris Kepser, who is succeeded by his daughter, Marloes Kepser. Together with her brother Harry, she is responsible for Kepser's new image.
By 2018, we have 11,000 square metres of production floor at our premises in Cuijk, and Kepser has close to 80 employees - driven, highly skilled, and down-to-earth professionals.
Our vision for the future? Machines are growing smarter by leaps and bounds, and the manufacturing industry is rapidly being digitalised. The concomitant integration of operational processes offers opportunities for chain partners to collaborate with each other and with clients. We wish to make the best possible use of these opportunities and permanently position ourselves as a front runner that matters.
