WEBO is an enterprising family business based on innovation and an eye on the future. Over the years, WEBO has optimised its processes and established itself in the market as: ‘Inventors in the carpentry industry’.


It all started with the Webo carpentry factory. This company was founded by the Wermers family in Borne. When the Webo carpentry factory came into existence, new inventors were born in Borne. The name is a portmanteau consisting of the first two letters of ‘Wermers’ and the first two letters of ‘Borne’.


Jan Haase takes over the factory. He sees many opportunities for the company. At that time, the Webo carpentry factory produced doors, frames and products from wood, used as a raw material in the widest sense of the word. Immediately, he decided that the company’s processes were due some structure, with computers providing the answer. From the outset, the Webo carpentry factory has worked with computers, and digitisation forms a clear requirement within the company.


The municipality of Borne refuses not approve an expansion of the factory, so Jan Haase decides to move his factory to Rijssen. There, he builds a new production location for the Webo carpentry factory, equipped with the latest machinery.


The Webo carpentry factory participates in the International Construction Fair for the very first time. The fair attracts thousands of (inter)national visitors. In the Bernhardhal II, at booth number 1185, an international audience is introduced to the Webo carpentry factory.


The Webo carpentry factory continues to grow. In 1991, the factory employs 58 people, working in the office and in the factory.


The Webo carpentry factory is recognised for its innovative nature. Many products are certified by KOMO. Even now, the application of KOMO generates many exceptional projects.


The Webo carpentry factory recognises the added value of working with FSC® certification. It obtains its first FSC® certificate, the first step towards even more sustainable products, monitored by accredited institutions.


The Webo carpentry factory starts using its brand-new production location. The prefab location opens in response to market demands. More and more parties are trying to find a qualified party to install timber-frame elements. The Webo carpentry factory manages to set up this production line within a very short time.


Ownership of the Webo carpentry factory Webo changes hands from Jan to his son Willem. Willem Haase is immediately confronted with the challenge to guide the company through the economic crisis. He manages to do so by stimulating innovation in the company even more than before. Where possible, problems are tackled in the spirit of true inventors.


The company continues to grow. Clients, family, friends and neighbours start to become curious. On 14 March, the Webo carpentry factory organises its first Open Day. Everyone gets a look behind the scenes, where they play various traditional Dutch games and enjoy a typically Dutch herring.


The fully-automated production process goes live. The new Biesse Winline marks the fact that the entire process is now more automated and optimised than ever before. The machine can be controlled from the office and replaces multiple other machines. The machine can also be controlled directly from the BIM model.


The Webo carpentry factory keeps growing and successfully realises several prominent, major projects. The inventor’s spirit was always part of the company and is now reflected in the house style and a new name. From now on, the Webo carpentry factory will simply be called WEBO, with the tagline: ‘Inventors in the carpentry industry.’
