Our story

1955 FOUNDING PAMO

Two friends, Paul Tilley and Raymond, found Metaalwerken Pamo.

Very shortly after the start-up of the business activities (three months), Raymond leaves the activities, after which Paul Tilley continues the business together with his wife.

The original business activity of Metaalwerken Pamo is mainly focused on the maintenance of machines and company machines. Only later will the activities become as we know them today: manufacturing of supports for high voltage and electricity posts, maintenance and modification of the machinery of a multinational (pharmaceutical sector), specific metalworking and custom constructions.

In the early 1970s the couple decided to transfer their sole proprietorship into a partnership. On October 18, 1972, the P.V.B.A. Pamo Metaalwerken founded.

1986 METAALWERKEN PAMO N.V.

In this year the company is transformed into a public limited company and the sons, Mark and Dirk Tilley (respectively working in the company since 1977 and 1983), are appointed as directors of the company.

2005 50 YEARS PAMO

In 2005 Pamo Metaalwerken celebrates its 50th anniversary!


The manager consciously chooses to grow steadily. Pamo decides to put its energy into quality and customer service, instead of opting for unbridled and uncontrollable growth.

At that time, Pamo Metaalwerken had already grown into a specialized metal processing company with an impeccable reputation within the sector and a very healthy financial structure.

2006 FREDERICK POLLET TAKES OVER

At the age of 78, founder Paul Tilley leaves his company to the young ir. Frederick Pollet.
