New Vekama was founded by Hilde De Saedeleir, the 30th of June 1999, by taking over the commercial activities of the company Vekama, a wholesaler in Accessories for the manufacturing of car mats.
In our early years, Hilde was running the business by herself, and we only had a limited range of fastening systems and PP overlocking yarn. Along with the fast-moving automotive industry, evolved also our range. In the meantime we are specialized in original and universal fixing systems for car mats, of which we have in the meantime 31 different ones in our collection.
In addition to the fixing material, our customers can also contact us for all other accessories such as overlocking yarn, heelplates and hangers. We can easily say that we offer our customers the biggest variety of car mat accessories on the market.
Along with the growing number of customers, we needed to adapt our staff to secure a perfect service. Evelien came in service in 2005, and today she is still a solid and reliable value within our company. Didier joined the team in 2011.
Additional staff also means additional growth opportunities. In 2007 we decided to buy an embroidery machine. At the start only to meet the demand for embroidered logos for car mats. In the meantime, we have 3 industrial embroidery machines and our clientele has also extended to other sectors, mainly the equestrian sport.
Due to the constant price pressure on the market, we have decided 3 years ago to take the production of several articles in our own hands. In the meantime we are proud that we already have our own moulds for 8 different fixing systems and 1 heelplate. The injection moulding is done with high quality raw material, that meets the high standards of the automotive industry.
In February 2018, Elien decided to join the company and to become assistant manager of New Vekama. In the meantime we also moved the company to our new location in Moorsel.
Together with our customers, we look forward to the next 20 years of New Vekama!
