During the 1960s, prosperity increased massively everywhere in the Netherlands, yet in Twente, the people were on the threshold of a social and cultural disaster. The production capacity of the textile industry proved to be too great within Europe, as a result of which a large number of textile factories in Twente were shut down in the mid-1960s. Moekotte owes its establishment to the fact that, on the one hand, the textile factories were shut down and, on the other hand, these factories had to be redesigned to suit other activities. The electrical engineering sector is, after all, the birthplace of Moekotte.
Since its establishment in 1966, the company has developed further and has specialised in other areas. Our central focus is you, the customer, and problem-solving has become second nature within our company. The minimum requirements that users impose on an electrical system, are that it be user-friendly, reliable, comfortable, sustainable, and absolutely safe. In the past, Moekotte primarily focussed upon installations in industrial premises and machine controls. In recent years however, the company’s work portfolio in relation to utilities has led to the development of a valuable department.
