History of the company KOOMEN

The company was founded in 1860 by Jan Koomen who(from his general store and inn in Wadway)sold seeds, pulses and grain to farmers in the region of West Friesland in North Holland. He was succeeded by his son Piet Koomen and grandson Dorus Koomen who continued with the seed, pulse and grain business and also began to import and export these materials.

In 1964, Dorus Koomen's son(Piet), in partnership with Ellen Ellens bought a company called N.V. Folia in Oostermeer. N.V. Folia was an established distiller of essential oils and was buying some raw materials from the Koomen company. The new company was called Ellens-Koomen. Five Years later in 1969, Ellen Ellens retired, the company re-located to Spanbroek and continued under the name Erven Th. Koomen B.V.
