Johannes Kuipers started in 1964 as a village blacksmith in the Frisian Woudsend. The company has now grown under the name of Kuipers Woudsend into a leading manufacturer of high-quality stainless steel products. A progression that saw the transformation from a solitary employee to a workforce exceeding 90 individuals by 2016. Their repertoire encompasses the crafting of semi-finished articles, which subsequently undergo further refinement elsewhere, as well as end products. Both corporate entities and individuals are welcome for professional welding, construction work, bending work, sheet metal work and engineering.
