Time travel - 115 years Ten Brinke

Today, the fourth generation of the Ten Brinke family is at the helm and the company can look back on over 110 years of building expertise and property know-how. It has grown from a building contractor into an international, innovative builder, project developer, financier and investor with in the meantime more than 650 employees.

Ten Brinke: a pioneering company with its own identity and tradition and the strong roots of a family Company.



In 1902, Theodorus ten Brinke set up in business as an independent building contractor on the Doetinchemseweg in Varsseveld. His business grew steadily and was contracted to build homes and commercial premises.



In 1950, Wiet ten Brinke Sr., Hendrik ten Brinke and Dorus ten Brinke took over the business. The advent of this second generation made the establishment of Metsel- en Aannemersbedrijf Gebroeders Ten Brinke (Ten Brinke Brothers Builders and Contractors) a reality.



In 1966 it was time for the third generation to step up: the cousins Wiet ten Brinke Jr. and Hans ten Brinke joined the business, followed some time later by Arnold ten Brinke, who set up a joinery department. Together they worked hard to grow the business and completed their first projects in Germany. As a result of establishing and acquiring different companies.



Ten Brinke outgrew its original premises and in 1982 it moved from the Doetinchemseweg to its present location on Burgemeester van de Zandestraat, still in Varsseveld. The company experienced significant growth over the next twenty years.



The arrival of a namesake, Albert ten Brinke, resulted in a massive expansion of project development activities. Ten Brinke is a household name in development and construction in the Netherlands, Germany and Spain.



In 2002, Ten Brinke celebrated its one hundredth anniversary with its employees and customers.
