How it all started
In 1969, ambitious technical professions teacher Aart van Halteren founded Van Halteren Metaal in Bunschoten, The Netherlands. With specialized metal products for local shop-keepers such as bakeries and milkmen, his small workshop was quickly filled and Aart asked his brother Joep van Halteren to join his growing business.
In 1972, son-in-law Izaak Veerman followed to expand commercially. In the seventies, Van Halteren Technologies won a substantial contract to design and produce road wheels for military tracked vehicles. With this contract, the road wheels division was born. In the eighties, Van Halteren Technologies was in need of larger production facilities and moved to industrial estate De Kronkels in Bunschoten.
The nineties: Howitzer Crew Trainers
In the nineties, the first orders for Howitzer Crew Trainers were placed. Ever since, Van Halteren Technologies has been designing, improving and producing defence simulation systems for international customers.
2004: several contracts for the production of important land based (sub)systems
In 2004, the land systems activities started when Van Halteren was awarded several contracts for the production of important land based (sub)systems such as the Pzh2000 and the CV90. Maintenance, repair and overhaul services followed from this program and Van Halteren Technologies developed excellent partnerships with the Dutch MoD and several Original Equipment Manufacturers. Over the years, various expansions were made to the facilities in Bunschoten to ensure production capabilities for the increased demand.
2015: the acquisition of NOVEK Technical Solutions
The product portfolio continued to grow, especially after the acquisition of NOVEK Technical Solutions (formerly Stork Special Products) in 2015. With the new facility in Zwolle, Van Halteren Technologies took over a large spare parts department and a well-equipped facility specialized in the maintenance, repair and overhaul of engines and transmissions of heavy vehicles. Moreover, Van Halteren Technologies expanded its portfolio with products and services for the naval market, such as HVAC systems and NBC/CBRN filters.
2022: the acquisition of Bosch Rexroth Large Projects
Always on the look-out for new technologies and opportunities to better serve client’s needs, Van Halteren Technologies acquired Bosch Rexroth Large Projects (formerly known as Hydraudyne) in 2022. The latest acquisition adds motion technology to the simulation department, brings in the finest drive and control technology and completes the naval portfolio with Replenishment At Sea (RAS) and Helicopter Transfer Systems.
