Paulides B.V. has been producing DC supplied motors for more than 80 years. The story behind our company is too big to cover in a paragraph, so this page is dedicated to the history of Paulides B.V. On the one side it describes our products and applications and on the other side the development of the factory and the buildings.
The factory was started during the depression, since no job was available fro a freshly graduated engineer, in dad's workshop behind the parents home. The calculations and design were made on pieces of the newspaper and on the back of cigar boxes. In this way, during the war, something, although slowly, happened in Sprang. After the war, in a new building, the current factory was initiated.
Our factory has always been a family business, where everybody who was around made hers or his contribution. For this we would like to thank the entire family.
Without doubt, the most important persons for a factory are the employees. That is why we would like to thank our past and current employees. Especially we like to mention the employees who worked at home (winding the armatures), who, mostly behind the scenes, contributed tremendously to the success of Paulides BV. There is one employee we especially like to point out, Gerrit Haisma, who has worked for 60 years and three generations within Paulides BV.
Furthermore, we would also like to thank our suppliers, most of whom have been supplying us for many years, for the enjoyable contacts. Also, we would also thank our customers for the confidence they showed in our products.
