2021. A year that I have been looking forward to. To start with of course, because of the hope that we will regain our freedom to be able to meet up with one another without all sorts of restrictions. A year in which we will be able to embrace our family and friends and I will be able to shake your hand.
A special year for Textaafoam as well. Not only do we have numerous plans to better facilitate you as a customer with, for example, a broad choice of sustainable fabrics, we will also celebrate our 50th anniversary. And while that humbles us, it also fills us with pride.
We are proud of the extended Textaafoam family that helped develop the idea of founder Frans van der Aa, my grandfather, into the company as you now know it. It was on 28 September 1970 that he registered Textaafoam with the Chamber of Commerce in Tilburg. We are regularly asked where this name came from. So perhaps it would be nice to share this with you!
Textaafoam is a combination of
TEXT from textile
AA from ‘van der Aa’
FOAM from the trade in cushions at the time.
That trade in cushions stopped 20 years ago but we continue to carry the name with pride!
In the course of this year, we will be happy to share more interesting facts about our great company and surprise you, as usual, with articles and services that support your creativity.
I also wish you a great, healthy and successful new year.
See you soon,
Mark van der Aa.
