SARIS AANHANGERS: SINCE 1959

SARIS Aanhangers B.V. was officially established in 1959. But really, the company's origins date back to 1913, when the grandfather of directors Henny and Ferry Saris opened a smithy in Eindhoven.

1960

In 1960, SARIS Aanhangers moved to the Loonseweg in Hapert. A hectare of land was purchased there to accommodate six warehouses. These buildings had capacity for between 600 and 800 lorries a year.

1972

Over time, SARIS became more and more specialised. By 1965, the firm was producing 1,000 SARIS trailers a year. In 1971, the company saw an extension that included an automated paint shop in a new warehouse, which made the trailers weatherproof and improved their resistance to impact.

1979

After an office extension on the Loonseweg, the site had reached its capacity. A new 22,000m² plot was purchased on the Metaalweg in Hapert, of which 7,500m² was built on. The paint shop was regularly showcased to visitors. Production increased fifty-fold: from 200 trailers in 1960 to 10,000 in 1985.

1989

The first welding robots entered the scene in 1989. They took over 95% of the welding work, and guaranteed consistently high quality products. There are presently six systems operative, each with eight robots.

1995

A milestone was reached in 1995 when the 250,000th SARIS trailer left the factory!

1999

In 1999, an extension was built for a despatch warehouse. SARIS continues to rise to new challenges, and in 2006 the company acquired a property on the Energieweg 3B to house a welding shop. A year later, a property on the Metaalweg 1 in Hapert is purchased.

2008

Another great milestone is reached in 2008: the sale of the 500,000th trailer! One year on in 2009, SARIS Aanhangers celebrated its 50th anniversary.

2017

In 2017, the SARIS corporate identity and logo are refreshed and accompanied by a new focus on customer service.
