Before 1948, 'Dols' was simply the surname of Pierre Dols. He built his business by offering the very best office supplies.
In 1954, Pierre Dols settles in the Dutch-Limburg town of Sittard.
Son Pierre Dols takes the business to the next level with everything an office needs: from typewriter ink ribbons to coat racks and paper clips to filing cabinets.
The Dols tag line is now 'Office efficiency & project Furnishing' and they live up to the name by opening a second branch in Sittard. Dols' resilience and reach grows, and not only transcends national borders, the range of services also grows. The goal is not just to supply office products, but a 360° view of projects with installation and assembly to full service.
Thijs Dols joins the family business, ushering in the third generation.
With the arrival of Dries Dols, Thijs' brother, the reach of the full-service company extends to project furnishings, office supplies and office machines. The logo takes the form of an owl, looking forward to the future.
TD Holding takes over the helm from Jean Dols Holding, and the third generation now incubates all the expertise. The boundaries between the hospitality sector, retail units and also living and working environments increasingly overlap, which demands flexibility. In various projects in the hospitality sector, Dols finds a kindred spirit in Belgian-Limburg-based C&P, and the two companies not only seize opportunities together, they also notch up firm successes.
