The Beginning 1938 - 1950

At the back of the parental house in a shed. There, at the "Pad", was in 1938 in Sprang the start of the company we know as Paulides BV. It was a time of depression and Johanes (Jo) Paulides didn't have much of a choice but to start his own factory. A man had to earn one's bread. This is the reason why Jo started, after a short internship at the tram tracj in Amsterdam, to sell his own ideas. The first ten years he mostly repaired electrical machines for various customers. Next to that tools for the leather industry and machines for sewing machines were designed and fabricated. Brabant didn't encounter the war. This permitted the development of the factory.
