HISTORY OF RIBBON & ROPE
Ribbon & Rope has a story of passion and quality. Let us take you on our tour through time and find out more about Ribbon & Rope.
THE START OF JABECO!
Three students Jan, Berend and Koen got the chance to do something different to finish their study small business and started their own startup: Jabeco. This project provided the students a way to identify new business oppertunities.
After the first succesfull years two of the three friends (Berend & Koen) decided to leave the company. Jan decided it was time to focus on narrow textiles and hosiery.
The company moved into the first office building on the Industriestraat in ‘s-Hertogenbosch and the first employee started working!
EXPANSION & EXPANSION…
Quality is job one! Jabeco decided to specialize even more in narrow textiles and said goodbye to all non related products. The office made room for two new desks and the third and fourth employee joined the team!
Jabeco kept moving forward, and literally opened a new door, at the new office and warehouse de Grote beer den Bosch. The new space was needed for the extra stock and three new team members.
BUILDING ACROSS THE STREET
”Keep moving forward” and in our case across the street! Number 19 & 21 are the new office and warehouse of Jabeco!
The company that once started with three employees can now proudly say that the fourteenth employee started in 2015!
BREAKING THE WALL
Due to the success of delivering from stock, more space had to be created. Number 17 has been added and the second wall had to be broken to connect the warehouse.
TIME FOR A CHANGE
This year it was time for a change! The organization had never been so structured and because of this we were proud to present this to our customers. It was time for a new identity. In this process we determined our strong points and due to long experience in the narrow textile industry combined with thirty years of improvement, challenges and growth have resulted in: Ribbon & Rope house of narrow textiles!
