In 1989, IMG Europe was founded by Lia van de Vorle-Houben in Gassel, the Netherlands. The company owes its existence to sister company Wijnroemer Relief Goods. Since 1983, WRG provides relief goods and supplies to various relief organizations worldwide. In case of major disasters such as earthquakes and floodings, the company is committed to offer assistance.
Outbreaks of infectious diseases such as cholera, tuberculosis and typhoid fever are common in disaster-struck regions. Lia van de Vorle: “We are regularly confronted with the huge impact of these disease outbreaks. We wanted to improve those situations. For us it was immediately clear that the spread of infectious diseases had to be prevented, which is better than curing them.” With this in mind, IMG Europe was founded.
Over the years, the product range of IMG Europe has grown, and several novel patented products were developed. The philosophy from the past remains the central theme today: It is better to prevent than to cure. That’s why IMG Europe is your partner in Personal Protective Solutions.
