The historical highlights of injection moulding company AKF Plastics

The start of AGF
On the Baarsjesweg (Amsterdam Old-West) was a firm of tool makers named the 'Amsterdamse Gereedschappen Fabriek (AGF) CV', which mainly focused on the production of cutting, bending, tracking and punching stamps for the metal industry.
Emerging plastic market
In the 1970s, the focus on metal stamps gradually changed to the production of injection moulds for the emerging plastic market in the Netherlands, and the old profession moved on.
AKF is taken over
In 1972 the company was bought by Jan Willem Knoop, a building contractor from Groningen, primarily as an investment. The son-in-law and daughter of Mr. Knoop, Cees and Maddy Bakker, were employed in this company.
The start of AKF
In the 1980s the purchase of the first injection moulding machine was made, primarily intended for in-house testing of the injection moulds they produced. The first 0-0 series and the first production series soon followed. The number of injection moulding machines expanded rapidly and the 'Amsterdamse Kunststoffen Fabriek (AKF) BV was established.
Moving to Naarden
In 1987 the existing factory was still right in the centre of Amsterdam, but it became too small and the problems with the residential areas surrounding it, grew. So the company decided to purchase and use a business premises on an industrial site in Naarden and both companies moved to its current production location.
The injection moulding activity is expanding
In the 1990s, the injection moulding production was gradually expanded and the focus shifted permanently from a mould maker, to an injection moulding supplier with its own tool making.
AKF and AGF become 1 company
In 1995 the new generation of owners entered the company, and in 1999 both companies were taken over by them. Both business activities were then brought together to form the current company 'AKF / AGF Industry BV'.
In the following years the emphasis was increasingly placed on injection moulding which continued to grow. In 2010, business premises were also added to the company, which until then had been rented from the family.
AKF is moving
In 2012, the existing accommodation became too small, unsuitable for the business activities, and in urgent need of renovation. In 2012, a start was made on the construction of a new business premises consisting of two state-of-the-art production halls and offices at the location of the existing premises. This construction was completed in 2016 and the company is now ready for the future.
AKF Plastics
AKF / AGF industry becomes AKF Plastics and undergoes a house style metamorphosis. The logo remains the same, but the company name, colour scheme and overall branding is upgraded. AKF Plastics will continue to focus on the specialist requirements of the Aerospace, Automotive and Construction Industry. A new 1600-ton injection moulding machine enables AKF to produce large parts in large or smaller specialized series.
