Company history

In 1923, in Amsterdam, Fa. Van West was founded by Wouter van West. As an engineer and inspector at the Koninklijke Hollandse Lloyds Scheepvaart Maatschappij, he had gained a lot of experience with all techniques in shipping. This machine factory started by repairing engine parts for steam engines and producing cooling equipment and piston rings for marine diesels. Business went well and in 1927 a new hall was built next to it. In the following years, compressors were even designed and made for the cooling equipment of the KNSM (Royal Dutch Steamship Company). The name Fa. Van West stood for craftsmanship and quality.

In 1971, son Pieter van West moved the cooling equipment department to Heerde and continued there under the name Van West Heerde BV. In 1998 the company moved to its current location in ‘t Harde. Grandson Wouter van West continued the business until 1999, after which the business was taken over by Johan Blauw and since then the company name has been Van West Koeltechniek bv. From the beginning of 2020, his son Luke Blauw will continue the business.
