Anno 2016 our company We Love Tents NL was founded in our home port, Leiden. Despite this recent year, we (Lodewijk van Domburg and Diederik Houbolt) have had decades of experience in tent construction. Our expertise in tent construction is therefore not limited to stretch tents; in the past ten years, almost every type of tent has slipped through our hands. Over the years, we have built tents from the Dutch coast to East Germany. Our services are therefore not limited to the region of Leiden. Also our multilingual background (Dutch, English and German) makes We Love Tents NL a suitable partner for various events.
These years of experience, in combination with our young entrepreneurship, means that we are extremely flexible. Our motto is therefore: we are as flexible as the tents we supply. This flexibility yields very positive responses from our customers. “The speed in delivery, despite our own last minute order, saved my daughter’s children’s party. Without the quality of this tent, the party had literally fallen into the water (last minute client).” “Lodewijk is a top guy, he is always there when we need him. During a recent storm, I even was allowed to call him at 2 am to check out the location (permanent client).”
These reactions are what we work for, where the passion arises, and what we would like to supplement with your experiences with a tent from We Love Tents. Although the Dutch saying applies: one buys the men, not the tent. In this specific case we advise you to take both of these into consideration when choosing a tent from We Love Tents.
Hi, my name is Lodewijk van Domburg. Since 2014 I started as an independent entrepreneur in the market of stretch tents. However, the passion for stretch tents has arisen since its introduction in the Netherlands in 2010. At my previous employer, however, I missed the drive for the profession itself, the emphasis was on quantity instead of quality.
Therefore, I decided to develop my own style and working method, and have been able to develop myself ever since. I give first-degree courses to companies that buy their own stretch tent, give tailor-made advice, and especially do what feels good: providing a beautiful tent for a customers with beautiful wishes and ideas.
“I am very happy with a beautiful tent and the wow-response from the customer, which is much more valuable to me than an hour earlier at home.”
Hi, I am Diederik Houbolt, the other partner of We Love Tents. I have been active in this sector since 2007. It is the most beautiful job I have had so far; unbound to the office, unlimited creativity, intensive customer contact, and no day that is the same. This freedom, combined with the challenges of running a business, was what I missed in the office jobs I’ve had so far.
This is why I decided to combine my knowledge and expertise with the business side of management, which I gained during my study hospitality and event management. This turned out to be a golden combination: I have rarely been so happy with regard to my work.
“Entrepreneurship in itself, the freedom of the profession, the challenges to give each event an optimal and unique look… That makes my love this profession so much.”
