The generation Van der Wal comes from a family of smiths that started their own company in 1936.
In 1958, the 17-year old Koop van der Wal started working in his father's workshop. Willem, Koop's son, was 19 when he joined him. Due to a lack of space, the tractor specialist moved from Munnekeburen to Bant in 2008. After 53 years of working in the company, Koop decided to retire in 2010.
Since then, the company is run by Willem. Throughout the years, the company has experienced tremendous growth and has become one of the leading companies in its industry. Koop van der Wal includes a workshop, a showroom, and a large storage room. The entire site is over 20.000m2 and is located next to the A6 Highway.
