A short history of our company
The Faber Halbertsma story began in 1891, when Hidde Binnert Halbertsma took up a new trade: the production of wooden barrels for butter. Years later, In the 1950s, Halbertsma was the first company in Europe to start producing pallets.
In 1933, meanwhile, Frederik Faber had started his own company in Assen, also producing butter barrels. After a big fire in 1969 had destroyed his factory, Frederik decided to focus on the production of pallets. A great idea, as it turned out!
In 1978, Kees Faber took over from his father. Over the years, he acquired several companies, including, in 1992, Halbertsma. From then on, the company would be known as Faber Halbertsma Group.
