About Schipper Techniek (English)
Schipper Techniek was founded in 1981 by Antoon Schipper. The company’s main objective in those days was simple: provide superior parts and services to local industrial companies. With a strong work ethic and a devoted team, Antoon’s business and product range expanded rapidly.
In 1993 he established a new branche office in Hardenberg as a direct answer to the demand of his customers. In 1998 Antoon established a branche office in Enschede.
The founding of STS
In the same year (1998), Antoon decided to establish a separate company to focus on technical- and industrial maintenance and other services. This company became STS, short for Schipper Technisch Serviceburo (Schipper Technical Services).
STS started to focus on industrial maintenance, welding, turning, milling, machining and other services for local industrial companies.

Meanwhile, Antoon’s customer base kept growing and so the productrange of his trading company grew larger. In the very beginning, he was mainly selling bushings, belts and chains, but the current offer is bigger then Antoon could have ever imagined.
