Van Raam’s company movie

To give our customers an impression as to how a bike is made, we made a short company movie. This short movie gives a brief glimpse into the process of building an adaptive bicycle.


 

History

Van Raam has a rich history. Back in 1900, the company started off as a blacksmith’s forge located in Amsterdam . In the 70’s the company moved to Aalten, where the company started the production of bicycle frames. In 1984, Piet Boezel took over the company and under his leadership van Raam specialized in producing and designing special needs bicycles and bicycle frames. With a production area of over 6800 square meters, all bicycles are built according to a modern product line in Varsseveld. A lot of our employees live in the vicinity of Varsseveld and have been working for the company for many years. E.g. our oldest employee is 94 years old and has been working 70 years within the company. The family business is now run by the daughter (Marjolein Boezel), son (Jan Willem Boezel) and son in law (Ronald Ruesink) of Piet Boezel


Van Raam Mission Statement

Van Raam manufactures its own bicycles, hereby using the best quality products. With well trained staff, through continuous innovation, a modern product line and market investigation we produce bicycles that fit the needs of our customers.  A clear example of this is (among others) our collaboration with Technical  University Delft which leads to modern and beautifully designed bicycles. Our holistic approach guarantees high quality and service. Our mission statement is ‘Let's all cycle’, whereby customer friendly thinking and acting is a prerequisite. 


Van Raam custom made

Each bicycle, from a straight tube to a complete end product, is produced by Van Raam itself. Therefore almost every stage of the production is monitored and adjusted if necessary. This is necessary, given the wide variety of personal applications and user preferences. Custom made services are one of the core activities of Van Raam. For both, adults and children,  special bikes are being developed whereby much attention is paid to comfort, durability and design.Our slogan ‘Van Raam makes people mobile’ is put into practice every day. Characteristic for this family business is the combination of high knowledge, quality workmanship along with accurately responding to contemporary developments. Van Raam uses modern equipment, but is also not afraid to use ‘old-fashioned’ craftsmanship.
