Houtenmodeltrucks – Wood Models
From a hobby with three wooden scale models to a successful business with an extensive assortment of wooden model trucks – this is the story of Tjep Wassenaar.
An enormous growth in the number of Tjep's customers led to an increase in demand for his wooden model trucks. In the end, he was unable to combine his work with his job as bus driver. In order to ensure the continued success of his business ‘Houtenmodeltrucks’, Tjep Wassenaar decided to search for a partner. The most important criteria in his search was to find a company that would continue the business in a professional manner.
This led to discussions between WSI and Tjep Wassenaar. Both were enthusiastic about a takeover and an agreement was reached. Houtenmodeltrucks officially became part of WSI Group BV in January 2017, and is now known as Wood Models.
Tjep Wassenaar remains committed to his passion. From now on, he is an official dealer for Wood Models.
