History of Honicel

Shortly after World War II, a period of reconstruction started in The Netherlands and adjacent countries. In those days, the founder of Honicel, Mr. D. J. Holtslag (*16-08-1927 - †12-08-2007) was owner of a company in construction materials.  When looking for alternatives to deal with the acute shortage of construction materials, he developed a sandwich construction with a honeycomb structure as core material. The application of honeycomb shaped structures, were originally developed during the World War II for the air force industry.
 
Later in the 1950’s Mr. Holtslag, developed honeycomb structures made of paper and introduced it as a core material in sandwich constructions.  Mr. Holtslag was characterized by his pioneering mentality, being busy in finding new markets and developing new techniques and methods for an efficient production of paper honeycomb structures. Currently, the enterprises within the Honicel Group are still committed to this very strategy.
