6th generation of the Van den Pol family

Standing on the shoulders of her ancestors, Claudia is the 6th generation of the Van den Pol family. A family of entrepreneurs that grew from a blacksmith that started in 1847 into a worldwide player in a niche market. Being a worldwide player means bringing the best possible service all over the world through Apollo employees.


Our humble story begins in 1847. The first generations of Van den Pol always considered entrepreneurship to be of paramount importance.

All the success of Apollo started here by thinking ahead and taking action, by listening to the market and its customers and responding to them.
