“It is a stable product that we can manage well by ourselves. We have built up considerable competence over the course of time, which we are benefiting from now because we can handle roll-outs in other countries using our own staff.”
IT Manager, Amefa
Netherlands-based Amefa (Apeldoornse Messenfabriek Amefa) was founded in 1931,when the founder, Eugen Hollaender, began manufacturing razors. Faced with the threat of being forced out of the market by bigger manufacturers, he made a timely switch to the production of cutlery. Hollaender traveled the globe in search of trade and new ideas. In 1993 production at Amefa was discontinued, and the company transformed its operations, importing cutlery and kitchen knives from Asia.
