Boon Edam recently celebrated its 150th anniversary with a visit from King Willem-Alexander of the Netherlands for the inauguration of the new Royal Boon Edam International B.V. building in the Dutch city of Edam.

The King’s visit included the inaugural ceremony as well as a full tour of the facility and a reception at the family-owned company’s new Experience Centre.

“As Boon Edam celebrates its 150th anniversary, we continue to evolve and adapt to changing work environments with investments in technology,” said Niels Huber, owner and chairman, Royal Boon Edam. “Our newly renovated headquarters in Edam is a testament to our future endeavours and a reinforcement of the company’s commitment to innovation and sustainability over the next 150 years and beyond.”

King Willem-Alexander toured the premises with Niels Huber, chairman and third-generation owner of Royal Boon Edam. The tour covered numerous aspects of Boon Edam’s production process, including assembly, cutting, rolling, servicing, installation, innovations and sustainability.


“We were honoured to host the King’s visit to celebrate the opening of our new headquarters,” said Huber. “Boon Edam takes great pride in being a ‘Royal’ company, a distinction signifying the respect and trust given to us by Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands in 2003. The honour is testament to our strong community ties and firm dedication to our employees’ welfare. This event reiterates our commitment to upholding these values, fostering a legacy built on trust and appreciation.”
