Heijplaat celebrates hundred year anniversary

Residents of the Rotterdam neighbourhood Heijplaat, which has been home to K-TAINER since October 2014, have spent three days in May celebrating the town’s one hundred year existence. Before K-TAINER moved to the Heijplaat, in fact a hundred and twelve years before, another company moved here: RDM. There was no neighbourhood back then, or indeed a village: it was until eleven years after their settlement in the area that RDM were given permission to build a town to house their employees. Thus the village of Heijplaat was born.
