How Aldowa once started
Aldowa was founded in 1978 and started as a supplier of aluminium & metal cladding. This was followed by the demand for profiled sheeting as a facade finish, and in the 30 years since then, we have grown into a major supplier of facade products. When Allard Droste and Jan Boom took over Aldowa in 2006, the focus shifted to construction and infrastructure. We have grown into a total supplier; a project organisation where all disciplines are focused on the customer.
Aldowa Plaatwerk is founded in Rotterdam.
Jan Boom and Allard Droste take over Aldowa Plaatwerk and start a new business philosophy with the inseparable; "Aldowa dare to dream mentality".
