It was Henk van den Berg Sr. who founded Van den Berg drainage wells in 1959. He started trading in drains in his shed in Weesp that he purchased in Belgium. In addition to purchasing, he also focused on casting aluminum wells and made regular trips south to maintain inventory. In 1974 the company grew so quickly that the shed became too small and moved to the Koperstraat in Lelystad. They were one of the first entrepreneurs in the Flevopolder.

After 34 years, Henk Sr. passed the baton to his son, Henk Jr., who, with the same drive as his father, ensured that the company continued to grow steadily. Around 2004 he decided to develop shower drains, which turned out to be a successful step.


Sinds 2019 wordt Van den Berg afvoerputten gerund door Joost, Joey en Femke, de kinderen van Henk jr. Het bedrijf heeft haar afzetgebied uitgebreid naar Europa, het Midden-Oosten en de Antillen. Hoewel er nog steeds meer doucheputjes dan douchegoten worden verkocht, richten ze zich ook op het uitbreiden van hun assortiment met RVS- en kunststofmaterialen. Mat zwart is erg populair en koper en goud worden vooral gevraagd voor badkamers met sanitair in dezelfde kleurstelling. Van den Berg hecht veel waarde aan input van klanten en eindgebruikers bij de productontwikkeling, die in eigen huis wordt georganiseerd.

The company only works with permanent partners who manufacture according to the process developed by Van den Berg. They are currently busy developing drains made from recycled material. Using plastic from the automotive industry, they make new drains from old material, which are fully recyclable after their lifespan (which has been the case for the traditional variants for some time). Sustainability is an important aspect for Van den Berg, which is evident from the solar panels on the roof that compensate for the entire electricity consumption. In addition, all products are produced on Dutch soil, which is not only good for limiting CO2 emissions, but also for the local economy and fast delivery.


Customers regularly contact Van den Berg to see whether parts of old drains are still available. The company answers this question positively and can even supply parts for wells that are forty to forty-five years old.

If you would like to meet Van den Berg personally, they will be happy to visit you and give your team a product presentation. See you soon!
