That is why our own R&D department is always striving to improve our existing products. And why we are always trying to respond to new demands from the market. For more than 50 years we have constantly been searching for new possibilities to make films and adhesives match to perfection, so we can offer the perfect product combination for a certain application.
This product combination aims for the highest possible quality for your customer. And for the ease of application and technical aspects, which are so important for you as a processor of our products.
In this way we develop and manufacture products that meet your expectations and those of your customers.
More than 70 years of craftmanship
It all starts in Amsterdam
Herman Bosman starts h/o stanserij Holland in postwar Amsterdam. In 1961 the name of the company is changed into NV Bosman Letters.

NV Bosman Letters is rapidly growing. The premises in Amsterdam become too small. Followed by the opening of shops in Rotterdam, Eindhoven and Utrecht.
Gain a foothold in Belgium
