The people behind Paverpol International

Paverpol International is a company with an international image. Paverpol and all related products are available in over 50 countries.

New owners since January 2019

Brigitte and Edwin Broekmeijer and Hans and Carin Houmes are the new owners of Paverpol International. At the start of 2019 they took over the company from Daaf Schipper.

Paverpol International has been an established name for years worldwide. This is mainly due to Jossy and Jan de Roode, who started the company in the nineties of the previous century. Subsequently Daaf was active for five years. Now it's Brigitte, Edwin, Hans and Carin's turn. They are enthusiastically working on expanding the company further. One of the first changes that has been made, was the move to new busines premises in Kapelle. Investments were also made in a more efficient order and invoicing process, faster logistics processing and a new website. Next on the agenda is the introduction of new products.


25 years of Paverpol

 

“It is really special that thousands of people worldwide work with our products. If you really let that land, it gives you an incredibly satisfied feeling. All Paverpol buckets worldwide come from Kapelle and literally pass through our hands.”

You can find Paverpol International at the Ambachtsweg in Kapelle. From here, the products are shipped to no fewer than 47 countries. Paverpol is a unique textile hardener, a Dutch DIY product with a history that goes back 25 years. The secret behind this success? According to Brigitte Broekmeijer and Carin Houmes, it is the endless possibilities to shape creativity. “The basic product is the textile hardener Paverpol. If you combine this with our other products and your own creativity, then a lot is possible. You can create your own sculptures, for indoor or outdoor use, as well as wall decorations, dishes and jewelry. It is even used for carnival floats. Actually, an idea is added every day. And the best thing: anyone can do it! ”

International creativity
Sometimes professional artists choose Paverpol, but often amateur artists and hobbyists too. “We see all kinds of artworks passing by on Facebook, Pinterest and Instagram every day. You sometimes immediately recognize the nationality in this. In Japan people are housed in small houses. They mainly make small works. Whilst Canadian Paverpol enthusiasts like to go big with sturdy birds for their gardens. Because yes, that also makes Paverpol so much fun. It can stand outside: in the icy Canadian winters, but also in the sweltering heat of New Zealand and Australia.”

Renewal
Although Paverpol has been around for a quarter of a century and has a crowd of loyal users, Carin and Brigitte know that innovation and visibility are important points of attention. “We recently renewed the logo. We also put a lot of energy into optimizing online visibility. We have also completely renewed the webshop. We now work from a business premises in Kapelle, but are looking for something bigger. We also want to give workshops. And we are fully engaged in product development. For example, we will soon be introducing our own paint collection.”
