Jan van Dam (1947) settles as agricultural mechanisation company in a smithy which was on the present location in Opheusden. From the tree nurseries in the direct neighbourhood came the question for specific solutions for this sector. The first own machine was the dirigible CDO-60 tree undercutting plough with the LR-3 cable winch in 1970. In the course of more than 40 years the company developed into a manufacturer of tree nursery machines. Beside it machines have been imported and sold in the Netherlands and surrounding countries.
At the moment in the company are working about 20 employees. Due to a combination of disciplines we give an answer to every mechanisation problem. In the company a sales department, spare parts, repair and service department, construction workshop and a drawing-office are cooperating closely. This results in the delivery of a machine which comes up to expectations of the buyer. The quality and service of DAMCON have became a standard in the tree nursery. DAMCON delivers machines which are functional and reliable, pays very good and guarantees a long life.
Meanwhile the founder Mr Jan van Dam is getting on in years that he wants to spend his time on other things. By this time Gerrit Massink who came in service in 1998 as technical manager, has the general leadership of the company. Per 1st May 2007 Gerrit Massink has succeeded him as director. Both sons Jan junior and Rico van Dam are active in the company. They do activities in the repair and construction department.
