- The Haverkamp family established Imatech1973
In the early Seventies there was no specialist in the ARA region that supplied electrotechnical parts and components for seagoing vessels. That is exactly why the Haverkamp family established Imatech. Imatech is a contraction of International Marine Technics.
Crews on the seagoing vessels that called at the ports of Rotterdam, Amsterdam and Antwerp heard about Imatech. The first orders started to come in and soon the company started to grow thanks to the word of mouth of satisfied customers.
- Rent a garage as additional storage1975
In order to never have to disappoint customers, the company started to build a large stock of electrotechnical parts and components.
In no time at all, the house of the Haverkamp family was bursting at the seams with products and components in all types and sizes. They moved to Hellevoetsluis, near the international port city of Rotterdam, and had to rent a garage as additional storage.

But Imatech continued to grow, and in 1980 Imatech moved from the Haverkamp residence into proper office premises.
Although the office had moved, the storage remained in their garages.

Three years later, Imatech moved again to a larger location in Hellevoetsluis, on the Daltonweg.
The number of employees also grew. Here they had sufficient space. The storage and offices were once again in the same building.
