Pre-Motion - Back to the start (2004)
2018: Installation of turntable #100
For this year, all kinds of exciting, international collaborations are planned: from annually returning rental jobs to the installation of complete photo studios for various customers, for car and product photography.
Also this year, Pre-Motion expects to install its hundredth (!) turntable. Will we install this one in the Netherlands, Belgium, United Kingdom... or perhaps further from home?
2017: Start of close collaboration & a new website
To meet the growing demand for photography solutions, Pre-Motion finds a suitable partner for the (further) development of revolutionary photography software. In collaboration with IT-partner MyBit, Photo-Motion is established, ensuring hardware and software will connect seamlessly.
At the start of 2017 the new Dutch website is launched. From now on, our customers can compose products, place orders and request quotations online with ease. In the following months, the website is meticulously translated and by the end of 2017 the German, English and French websites can go online as well.
2016: from 8 to 13 permanent employees
The growing number of orders leads to an expansion of the office team. And the workshop is joined by a number of technicians, eager to learn.
For storage of the many rental systems, additional business space is arranged for. This means more room in the workshop for the fabrication and construction of systems for sale.
2015: Large turntable projects
Another important milestone: Pre-Motion gets a unique order from a prominent (German) customer in the automotive sector. This large order makes for challenges in the areas of planning and organization; after all, ‘regular work’ continues as usual.
2014: New expertise & new EU countries
For the first time, Pre-Motion collaborates on the creation of a complete studio for car photography. An exciting project providing much new expertise. Also, the first turntable is installed in Austria (Technisches Museum, Vienna). Our technicians have to go abroad more and more often, and further!
2012: Standardization of products
By adding focus to the Turntables & Display Conveyors product lines, an increasingly concrete product range emerges.
Milestone: the first turntable for car photography is installed at a Dutch car repair company. This is the start of a primary business unit of Pre-Motion.
2010: Relocation from Veenendaal to Ede
Because of the growing number of orders, we need a bigger workshop. Therefore, we move to a new industrial area in Ede. Our new building offers room for several offices and a beautiful showroom.
In the large workshop of the new company building we develop a custom conveyor-belt system for Google Android, in late 2010. The display is used at the 2011 Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. This prestigious custom project eventually becomes the first version of Pre-Motion’s Catwalker Single Lane: a presentation system that years later is still rented and sold a lot.
2009: Introduction of a new product group
After a complicated development process, Pre-Motion manufactures its first turntable; there’s much demand from both the Netherlands and Germany. But how do you unite two product groups that at first glance appear so different?
In the end, a simple &-sign (ampersand) between the product groups is the solution. From now on, our subtitle is “Turntables & Display Conveyors”.
2007: Growing German market
At German trade shows the moving display systems prove a regular hit. As a result, we start receiving more and more customer requests and orders from our eastern neighbours. Many Dutch companies are interested in renting or buying a presentation system as well, but often have a smaller budget available.
2006: Technical systems in a designer coating
By giving technical systems a sleek design, Pre-Motion manages to distinguish itself. The number of rental orders is growing fast; the luxurious appearance of the conveyor-belt systems appeals to many trade-show booth builders and caterers.
The first projects for sale vary from compact moving displays in shop windows to long sushi-conveyor systems in restaurants.
2005: The very beginning of a long collaboration
Pieter Koning comes into contact with Heimen Quik: an entrepreneur from the province of Noord-Brabant who’s even more passionate, if possible, about moving eye-catchers than Pieter himself. Together they found Pre-Motion BEVY.
2004: Inspired by Japanese motion technology
When Pieter Koning and his family are enjoying all the dishes passing by on a sushi belt in a restaurant, he’s suddenly inspired. Quickly he scribbles his ideas on a napkin.
Inspired by the Japanese way of presenting sushi, at home Pieter starts making sketches for a display conveyor for snacks and other small products.
