Loes van Aken

Loes played in her father’s factory as a small child. The smell of wood feels like a second home.

Now her children play among the wood in her company.

Collaborating with your father

Loes studied mechanical engineering. After gaining a few years of work experience, Jan asked if she would like to join Louët.

She did.

For about 15 years, she enjoyed working there.

Then came the corona pandemic.

Loes withdrew from work to support her family. The storm blew over, thankfully.

The youngest family member went to school and Loes felt a longing to go back to work.

As her father prepared to leave Louët bv, she noticed that he wasn’t ready to let go of his work.

And neither did she.

The collaboration felt familiar and they decided to start over.

With Lojan bv, they started a new adventure at the beginning of 2023.

Lojan for the future

With Lojan, everything starts from scratch.

It feels liberating to build this company from the ground up, take all things into consideration and figure everything out.

Ideas become products, new processes, different packaging, new techniques and a personal approach.

For Loes, sustainability and leaving the world a better place for her children is paramount.

Most of the office furniture is second-hand. All received packaging are kept and reused.

The CNC machine is an “oldie” that can last for years after being serviced.

The table milling machine was acquired from Paul, the new owner of Louët.

Thus, Lojan is truly a contemporary company. 

A combination of 50 years of craftsmanship and modern technology. With affordable quality products that last for generations.
