Driessen’s history goes back to 1938, when Mr Gerard Driessen founded his company in Limmen, The Netherlands. Production for the aviation industry started with oven inserts glass racks and containers for KLM. When the first Jumbos got operational at the end of the 60’, the product range was extended with the well-known service trolleys. As the demand for Driessen equipment continued to increase rapidly, Driessen decided as one of the first entrepreneurs in the aviation industry, to move to cost effective countries. This resulted in 1986 in the establishment of its first manufacturing facility in Thailand. In 1994, Driessen took over the galley equipment activities of Lermer and became world market leader in galley equipment.
Since 2008, Driessen is part of Zodiac Aerospace. The Catering Equipment activities of Driessen are integrated into the Cabin branch of Zodiac Aerospace.
