Losberger De Boer célèbre un siècle d’existence

100 years LDB

C’est au début du siècle dernier et à 600 kilomètres de distance que Friedrich Losberger et Klaas de Boer jetèrent les bases de l’entreprise qui célèbre aujourd’hui, en 2019, un siècle d’existence comme l’un des principaux fournisseurs de structures temporaires.

Ces deux entrepreneurs ne pouvaient naturellement pas imaginer que les tentes de réception et les chapiteaux de cirque qu’ils construisaient à la main, respectivement à Heilbronn et à Hensbroek, allaient ouvrir la voie à la réalisation d’importantes structures temporaires conçues sur mesure pour des événements prestigieux tels que Jeux Olympiques ou Championnat du monde de football, mais aussi à la réalisation de structures modulaires destinées à divers usages professionnels.

Les premières années

En janvier 1919, Friedrich Losberger inscrit son entreprise, qui s’appelle alors Friedrich Losberger Sackhandlung, à la Chambre de Commerce locale en Allemagne. C’est là, à Heilbronn, près de Stuttgart, que commence l’histoire de Losberger De Boer. Sa première tente est destinée à un cirque itinérant, qui l’utilise comme étable pour ses animaux. Et c’est vers la même époque que Klaas de Boer réalise à Hensbroek, un village dans les environs d’Alkmaar, sa première tente destinée à accueillir une fête villageoise. Tous deux ne tardent pas à se rendre compte des nombreuses possibilités d’application de ce type de tentes et se consacrent à développer leurs entreprises.

Une époque difficile

Mais c’est une époque difficile. L’usine de Friedrich Losberger est entièrement détruite au cours de la Seconde Guerre mondiale. La construction d’une nouvelle usine permet ensuite à l’entreprise de se consacrer à la production de tentes servant de structures temporaires. À Hensbroek, l’entreprise de Klaas se redresse très bien au cours de l’après-guerre. Il concentre ses activités sur la location de tentes destinées à toutes sortes d’usages.

Des solutions modernes de structures temporaires

Les années 50 sont placées sous le signe du renouvellement et de l’innovation. Les premières filiales sont créées à cette époque, aussi bien en Allemagne qu’aux Pays-Bas. C’est vers la fin des années 80 que se profile l’évolution vers des solutions modernes de structures temporaires telles que celles fournies aujourd’hui par Losberger De Boer. L’apparence et le confort prennent de l’importance et les deux entreprises poursuivent le développement de leurs structures modulaires, afin de tenir compte de la demande croissante de solutions semi-permanentes. À partir de là, le simple mot de « tente » ne convient plus pour décrire le type de produits proposés.

L’union des forces

Losberger et De Boer travaillent plusieurs fois en collaboration avant de décider en 2017 d’unir leur savoir-faire, leur expérience, leurs capacités et leurs parts de marché, pour continuer ensemble en tant que Losberger De Boer. Depuis la fusion, l’entreprise est en mesure de gérer en interne l’ensemble de la chaîne, depuis le développement des produits jusqu’à la production, de la location de structures  à la vente de projets.

Chacune des deux entreprises occupait déjà une position de premier plan avant la fusion ; une position que Losberger De Boer prévoit de renforcer et d’étendre au cours des prochaines années grâce à cette intégration réussie. Pour y parvenir, Losberger De Boer s’investit à fond dans sa mission : créer les meilleures solutions de structures modulaires et fournir la meilleure expérience client.

Losberger De Boer feiert 100-jähriges Bestehen

Vor einhundert Jahren haben Friedrich Losberger und Klaas de Boer die Grundsteine für ein Unternehmen gelegt, das eines der weltweit führenden Anbieter für temporäre und semi-permanente Raumlösungen wurde: Losberger De Boer. 2019 feiert nun das Unternehmen sein 100-jähriges Bestehen.

Beide Unternehmer konnten damals niemals erahnen, dass die von ihnen in Heilbronn (Deutschland) und im rund 600 km entfernten Hensbroek (Niederlande) von Hand gefertigten Zelte den Beginn eines Unternehmens einleiten würde, das nicht nur Eventhallen für Großprojekte wie die Olympischen Spiele und die Fußball-WM liefert, sondern ebenfalls modulare Raumlösungen für Handel und Gewerbe.

Die frühen Jahre
In Heilbronn bei Stuttgart beginnt die Geschichte von Losberger De Boer. Im Januar 1919 meldete Friedrich Losberger seine Firma Friedrich Losberger Sackhandlung bei der Handelskammer an. Sein erstes Zelt baute er für einen Wanderzirkus. Etwa zur gleichen Zeit baute Klaas de Boer in Hensbroek bei Alkmaar sein erstes Zelt für ein Stadtfest. Beide erkannten schnell die Vorteile von Zelten für die unterschiedlichsten Einsatzbereiche und im Laufe der Zeit konzentrierten sich beide Unternehmen mehr und mehr auf temporäre Strukturen.

Unruhige Zeiten
Die Zeiten waren jedoch turbulent. Die Fabrik von Friedrich Losberger wurde während des Krieges zerstört. Er baute sie an einem neuen Standort wieder auf und von da an drehte sich alles um die Produktion temporärer Strukturen und ein solides Wachstum des Unternehmens. Klaas De Boer erfuhr ebenso in der Nachkriegszeit eine starke Wachstumsphase. Er konzentrierte sich auf die landesweite Vermietung von Zelten als temporäre Lösung für die unterschiedlichsten Zwecke.

Moderne Raumlösungen
Beide Unternehmen erlebten in den 50er Jahren viel Innovation und in den 80er Jahren entstanden die ersten Strukturen, die den semi-permanenten Raumlösungen ähnelten, die Losberger De Boer heute produziert. Ein Trend zu ästhetischen Formen und komfortablen Inneneinrichtungen setzte ein. Eine Vielzahl von Formen und Konstruktionsdesigns zeichneten sich ab und die Bezeichnung "Zelt" war nicht mehr zutreffend.

Der Zusammenschluss: Losberger De Boer
Losberger und De Boer hatten früher schon einige Male zusammengearbeitet, als sich beide Unternehmen 2017 dazu entschlossen, ihre Kräfte zu bündeln und ihr umfangreiches Wissen, ihre Erfahrung, ihre Kapazitäten und ihren Marktanteil zusammenzubringen, um gemeinsam als Losberger De Boer voranzukommen. Seit diesem Zeitpunkt, von der Produktentwicklung über die Produktion bis hin zu Verkauf und Vermietung, kommt alles aus einer Hand.

Beide Firmen haben bereits vor dem Zusammenschluss eine führende Position im Markt eingenommen. Das Unternehmen ist davon überzeugt, dass es aufgrund seiner neuen Marktgröße und der erfolgreich integrierten Wertschöpfungskette, diese Position stärken und weiter ausbauen kann. Dazu richtet Losberger De Boer seinen Fokus voll und ganz darauf, ausgezeichnete temporäre Raumlösungen und besten Kundennutzen zu schaffen.

Losberger De Boer becomes a centenary company

100 years LDB

One hundred years ago, Friedrich Losberger and Klaas de Boer laid the foundation for the company that would become one of the world’s leading suppliers of temporary and semi-permanent space solutions: Losberger De Boer. In 2019, the company celebrates its hundredth birthday.

Both entrepeneurs could never suspect that the tents they built by hand in Heilbronn (Germany) and Hensbroek (the Netherlands), roughly 600 kilometers, would mark the start of a company that would not only supply large space solutions for the Olympic Games and the Football World Cup, but also provides modular space solutions for commercial space applications 

The early years

It is in Heilbronn, near Stuttgart, that the story of Losberger De Boer begins. In January 1919, Friedrich Losberger registered his company Friedrich Losberger Sackhandlung with the Chamber of Commerce. He built his first tent for a travelling circus. Around that same time, Klaas de Boer built his first tent for a town festival in Hensbroek, near Alkmaar. Both men quickly recognized the advantages of tents for a wide variety of purposes and, over time, both companies concentrated more and more on temporary structures.

Troubled times

The times, however, where turbulent. Friedrich Losberger’s factory was destroyed during the war. He rebuilt it on a new location and from then on, everything revolved around producing temporary structures and a decent growth of the company. Klaas De Boer also started a strong growth phase in the post-war period. He concentrated on the nationwide rental of tents as temporary solutions for a wide variety of purposes.

Modern space solutions

Both companies saw much innovation from the 50’ies on, and in the 80’s the first structures emerged that started to resemble the semi-permanent space solutions Losberger De Boer produces today. A trend towards aesthetic forms and comfortable interior environments set in. A variety of shapes and construction designs emerged and the description "tent" was no longer accurate.

The merger: Losberger De Boer

Losberger and De Boer had worked together quite a few times already, when in 2017 both companies decided to join forces and combine their extensive knowledge, experience, capacity and market share to move forward together, as Losberger De Boer. From that moment on everything, from product development and production to sales and rental, comes from one single source.

Both companies held prominent positions in the industry before the merger. Thanks to its increased scale and successful chain integration, the company is convinced it can strengthen and improve that position. To achieve this, Losberger De Boer’s is extremely focused on creating the best possible temporary space solutions and the best possible customer experience.
