The company has a strong reputation for producing quality products, and although it never claims the lowest purchase price, it says that the overall cost of ownership of its products is low due to the very long service life. The slogan ‘Safety, Quality, Innovation’ is a key part the Broshuis marketing strategy, we wanted to see if this holds true for the customer.

The company was founded in 1885 and can quite legitimately claim to have over 130 years’ experience in engineering. Originally based in Muiden near, Amsterdam, it moved to Kampen some years later when it outgrew its original factory. Full time trailer production started in 1929 and the first low loader was built in 1958. The company has remained family owned over all this time and is currently headed by Pieter-Bas Broshuis.
