Forty years of Overmat
Overmat Industries BV in Waspik is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year. “On May 1, on Labor Day to be precise,” says Jeroen van Oversteeg, who took over the company from his father in 2010. “Because of all the measures surrounding Covid-19, it is still difficult to say how we can celebrate this. But one can of course expect something from us. ”
Overmat employees are distinguished by their long-term employment. "That's right. We have a lot of staff who have been with us for a long time. I consider that a great compliment. This also provides a lot of security and reliability to the customers. You see the same faces and know where you stand, which creates confidence. We have a nice and friendly team. Together we want to create something beautiful. If I am doing well, the staff will also be fine. ”
Forty years ago, Overmat started with the Woodboy machine and a jar of lacquer as a do-it-yourself system. The rental systems, including the Woodboy, were installed with great success at hardware stores, rental companies and parquet shops. Van Oversteeg: “Around 1999 we started to focus more and more on the professional with Floorservice. From that moment on we mainly supplied quality products in the field of finishing to parquet wholesalers and parquet factories. But the subfloor also became more important, as a result of which sanding and scarifying machines gained importance - and developed into a fully-fledged second branch within the company. We are not only successful with our formula in the Netherlands, but we have a still growing export, also during Covid-19, and deliver to various countries in Europe, America, but also China. ”
Overmat is a fun, medium-sized, flexible and distinctive family business. This flexibility makes it possible to respond quickly to the changing circumstances in the market. “We can switch quickly and develop all products in-house. We have direct lines, keep stock and can provide our customers with the desired item at any time.”
That this is much appreciated is also evident from the loyal clientele of the company. “Some of our customers have been doing business with us for 40 years. We will certainly involve our customers in the anniversary. And of course something is done for the staff. Customers and personnel are the main pillars of the company. Without them we would never have come this far in those forty years, ”concludes Jeroen van Oversteeg.
