    Company based in Amersfoort

    One of Anthonius’ sons, Julius, anticipated better market opportunities in the garrison city of Amersfoort. In 1897, he established himself on Lange Beekstraat in Amersfoort. When the business immediately took off, he quickly had to move to larger premises on Arnhemseweg.

    More than just uniform hats

    Julius Hassing didn’t just supply uniform hats in Amersfoort; his establishment in Amersfoort also produced spurs, swords, handcuffs, and pistols.

    Acquisition by Ab Have

    Soon after the death of Julius Hassing’s son, Anthonius Hassing, the search began for someone to take over the business. Ab Have, who had scarcely worked two years at the company, voiced his interest in taking over. Once the bank approved this, the takeover was quickly finalised.

    Hassing opens a factory in Tunisia

    Due to overwhelming demand, it became impossible to continue producing everything in Amersfoort. After thorough discussion, it was decided to open a production branch in Tunisia. This made it easier to serve the international market.
