The Grand Caribbean Ballroom at the Radisson Aruba Resort Casino & Spa was the time machine in which Kooymanâ€™s anniversary party-guests went back in time, way back in time to 1939 when it all started and Kooyman B.V. a home improvement store opened on the island. The dÃ©cor of the party evoked the jazz era, as the Radissonâ€™s culinary and banquet team performed magic entertaining more than 200 people.
Kooyman B.V. has been operating in the Caribbean for 70 years, as a business focusing on building materials and hardware. It operated as Antil N.V. on Aruba since the mid-60s but was always the subsidiary of Kooyman B.V. In 2004 Kooyman B.V. remodeled and renovated its store bringing the Aruban community a bigger and better Antil, now Kooyman Aruba. Fair prices, a loyalty program and a wider assortment of products, makes Kooyman Aruba the source for hardware, building materials and many home improvement products, hopefully for many decades to come. Congratulations to the Kooyman family and to Kooymanâ€™s employees on their anniversary.
