ZME has grown up with technology thanks to father Jaap and grandfather Henk van der Zouw. Granddad had a carriage making business in Amsterdam, and later on he made series of toy cars out of old army tin with his son Jaap under the name “Hazo Speed toys”, and was the driving force behind a sidecar factory.
The barn next to the family home was the birthplace of many technical masterpieces. No technical problem was too great for father Jaap. In fact, his motto was always “no problem”.
This motto still defines our approach at ZME.
ZME was founded by Henkjan van der Zouw, who, like many before him, cautiously started out his own career in the garage beside the house.
