Kaak Group Chronology
The family Weenink moves to Lichtenvoorde where father (Jan Hendrik) Weenink starts a business as a coppersmith.
This is the foundation for the company as we know it.
Bernard Kaak takes over the company after marrying Bernadina Weenink-Lubbers the widow of Jan Weenink; at the start of the 20th century, the business continued with the first production of sheet metal bakeware.
Craft bakeries become increasingly industrialised. Kaak starts delivering conveying systems. Soon after this, the first automated bakery lines are produced.
Kaak is divided into two divisions:
- Kaak Food Production Systems
(machine construction / automation)
- Kaak Bakery Supplies (bakeware)
