History, from 1965 to the present day
In 1965 Raphael van Seumeren founded RAVAS in Utrecht. Starting out as a distributor of DAF trucks and accessories, he quickly discovered that the sale of accessories was more interesting. In the 1970s, RAVAS built the first mobile weighing system for lorries. When the growth potential of mobile weighing became clear in 1992, RAVAS decided to continue as RAVAS Europe bv. Since then it has been successfully and fully engaged in the design, manufacture and marketing of mobile weighing systems. RAVAS AL has won several awards with its innovative products. RAVAS is still owned by the Van Seumeren family. The head office is still located in the Netherlands, in Zaltbommel. The company also has sites in France and America. In addition, RAVAS has sales outlets around the world, from Asia to the United Arab Emirates and South Africa.
