Dijkstra Lampen B.V.
The Dijkstra company was founded in 1922 by Fokke Dijkstra in the small town Cruquius in the North-Holland province near Haarlem, not so for away from Amsterdam.
In 2011 Dijkstra had to sell the company, and it was taken over by Hala lighting, another one of the most oldest Dutch lamp factories. In 2013 Fokke Dijkstra (junior) was in a position to buy back the company his grandfather started. “Making lamps is in our genes” thus Fokke Dijkstra jr.
Today Dijkstra Lampen once again is a family business, producing custom light solutions, which complement the environmental architecture.
