COMPOSITE DECKING & BUMPERS PRODUCTS, SERVICES & PEOPLE First Roodberg trailer is still hard at work When Jisk Knijpstra opened a car scrap yard over 70 years ago in Haskerdijken, Friesland, it was to lead to great things. The yard grew to become a specialist supplier of goods to local industry and when Jisk’s son Hette and his wife Froukje took over the company in 1974, they created a top quality machine factory. New ideas, knowledge, craftsmanship and a passion for quality led the team to develop a variety of innovative equipment for the watersports sector and, in the process, lay the paving stones for the Roodberg brand. The Knijpstra team’s first hydraulic boat trailer was built as long ago as 1978. It was developed with customer input to offer a new, fast and economical solution for moving boats around a yard. As well as offering low cost operation, it was designed to offer remarkably long service life; over double the normal 15 to 20 year lifespan of an average trailer. Ongoing operations have proved this to be no idle ambition. Peter de Jong in Uitwellingerga still uses this very first trailer – 40 years down the line. “You can park so well with it!” he says enthusiastically. “It easily saves 20 to 30cm of space per vessel, which means you can grab an extra meter of rental space.” The trailer is primarily used to move boats in and out of winter storage. Since de Jong made his exceptionally cost-effective purchase, Roodberg has continued to hone and perfect its product line, always with a view to helping customers make best use of yard space and thus maximise income.
