And so it begins…

Vecom was founded in 1953 by Mr. Verbon and Mr. De Vries as a supplier to the maritime industry.

The company experienced a strong growth in cleaning and maintenance products for the maritime industry. Choosing this industry set the location of the establishment: Maassluis, the backyard of shipping agency Dirkzwager and Smit International.

Besides the maritime industry, Vecom has mainly focused on metal surface treatment.

Products for pickling, passivation, phosphating and electrolytic polishing of metal, as well as degreasers and other cleaning products, were developed to the portfolio.


Tix came on the market in the late 1970’s as a brand of Tensia S.A. Liège, a manufacturer of household products & chemical cleaning products for the industry. Tensia S.A. Liège was part of the British Petroleum Group. After the Gulf War, BP Tensia S.A. Liège and Tix were sold to Yplon.
