We are Eromesmarko

More than 100 years experience

Eromesmarko is a dynamic interior designer and furnisher of schools, with more than a 100 years of experience and more than 100 enthusiastic employees. Our values are reflected in all our products, from kindergarten chair to cabinet wall: durability, quality and innovation. We are proud of what we make and continuously explore how we can support and stimulate educational innovation with new insights and designs. Because we believe that a new perspective and approach will result in new solutions for every type of education.

Our identity

What we stand for Our history Made in Holland Enthousiastic employees

We are convinced that the learning environment impacts the quality of education. A well thought-out school interior provides peace and safety. It invites creativity and innovation. Based on this vision, simply making school furniture is not our primary goal. We create an environment that is in line with the core values of the school and lets you learn, teach, work and meet in a better way.

More than a century ago, in 1908, headmaster Gomarius Mes and his sons Jan and Thé built a small school furniture factory next to the railway in Wijchen, the Netherlands. Almost 60 years later Mes and Zn. merged with the furniture factory of Jan Rothuizen (Ero Architects) in Heelsum, the Netherlands.

Bicycle pedals and school furniture

In another part of the country, the Van der Mark and Kooistra brothers transformed an old dairy factory into their new company Marko in 1945. Initially, Marko made bicycle pedals, but from the beginning of the 1950s, tubular and school furniture were also part of the product range.

Young, with a century of experience

For years Eromes and Marko existed side by side, until 2014 when the product ranges and production locations were merged. That was the start of Eromesmarko; a young and innovative educational designer with more than 100 years of experience.

We are one of the few furniture manufacturers that can say that our own product range is made entirely in the Netherlands. From metalworking to powder coating, from sawing to upholstering, from design to assembly: everything is done by our own people, in our own factories in Wijchen, Hoogeveen and Emmen in the Netherlands. And we are quite proud of that.

The best choices

What is the advantage of this Dutch product? First of all, we can guarantee a stable quality and delivery time since we are not dependent on others. We make the best choices when it comes to materials, raw materials and means of production. And just as important: we limit transport miles, reuse our own residual materials and preserve the environment.

Feel free to come and take a look

Our factory in Wijchen was completely renovated in 2019 and is now one of the most sustainable production locations in the Netherlands. Curious? Feel free to contact us to take a look in Wijchen or one of our other locations.

At Eromesmarko, more than 100 enthusiastic and skilled employees work together on smart furnishing concepts. Problem solvers, technicians, creative minds, thinkers, hard workers, passionate leaders and silent forces: we are all convinced that changing our perspective and approach will result in new solutions.

We do it together

Each department has its own specialisation and each team has its own projects, but in the end we do it together. We share knowledge with each other and celebrate successes, but also dare to be critical and give feedback. Each project team regularly discusses its projects with the other teams to make use of everyone’s input and expertise.

Proud and passionate

We are proud of what we do and our customers and visitors see that. We like to inspire them with our enthusiasm and share our know-how of this interesting area of expertise with them. We keep our knowledge updated, because the (educational) world around us is changing rapidly and we always want to be up-to-date with our furnishing concepts, products and recommendations.

Our pride

The factory

Eromesmarko is one of the very few Dutch furniture manufacturers who can proudly say that all of their furniture is made in the Netherlands. As a result, we promote employment in the Netherlands and also make a positive contribution to the reduction of CO2 emissions, since transport distances are very minimal.

A strong group

The Fair Furniture Group

We are part of the Fair Furniture Group; an innovative and sustainable group of Dutch manufacturers of school and office furniture. A family of like-minded brands and people. With nine brands and more than 450 employees we can make everything together: from innovative resource to complete interior design. Smart ideas come to life in our Dutch factories in Hoogeveen, Emmen, Wijchen and Breda.

Connecting education, government and businesses

The Meshallen

Eromesmarko is the initiator and member of the Meshallen: the platform (physical and virtual) where education, government and businesses come together to inspire each other, (net)work, share knowledge, meet and train. In addition to the physical space in our building in Wijchen in the Netherlands, there is a handy Meshallen app;  this unique initiative gives us a large reach on social media. All this with one important goal: to make education better by bringing all the stakeholders and experts together.
