“Over 60 Years ago on the 17th of October 1955, Mr Wim de Raaij and Joop Datema signed the articles of incorporation for their new company, thereby declaring the “existentium defacto” of Ingenieursbureau De Raaij en Datema.

At the foundation of the engineering company it was already clear that the foreign market would play a very important role – as a trading area and source of materials.”
