Sealskin in Waalwijk is a company steeped in tradition, which celebrated its 250 year anniversary in 2004. Gerrit van Loon, the founder of the present organisation, set up his company in Waalwijk in 1754.
It started out as a leather business, supplying products to the (inter)national shoe industry and expanded its activities and range over the centuries. Leather disappeared and made way for plastic, fabrics, aluminium, glass and other materials. The shoe industry was swapped for the bathroom fittings sector. Slowly, but surely today’s company took shape: Sealskin, manufacturer and supplier of sanitary products and bathroom accessories. Since 1986, Sealskin has been part of the Coram Group.
