History

Loomans Group started as a one-man-business in 1968 when Wim Loomans began to manufacture injection molds: Loomans Molds. Six years later, in 1974, his son Jackie Loomans started up Loomans Plastics, producing large volumes of a limited number of plastic spare parts. From 1990 on, after his father’s death, Jackie Loomans becomes director of both companies.

In 2002 Loomans Molds Ltd. and Loomans Plastics Ltd. move together to a business area of 17.000 m2 on the industrial site of Kristalpark in Lommel. Both companies are then linked to each other under the Loomans Group.

The enthusiasm and zest for work that drive the company’s growth, lead to a first enlargement of 5000 m2 in 2007. In 2014 the continual growth demands a new expansion of another 5000 m2.

Jackie Loomans

In 40 years’ time, Jackie Loomans has turned the small mold manufactory of his father and his own injection molding start-up, into one of the most innovative production plants of its niche worldwide.

"Thanks to the commitment and competence of our staff, Loomans Groups continuously lives up to its ambitions. Over the last years our turnover has risen annually by 15% on average."

Rally

In rally riding too, Jacky Loomans is widely respected as multiple participant to desert rally’s.

"A hobby that got out of hand," he calls it after more than 20 editions of the Dakar Rally, and from 2009 on, the Africa Eco Rally; the more sustainable answer to the relocation of the Dakar to South-America.

In the 2014 edition of the Africa Eco Rally Jackie Loomans and his co-driver Frits Driesmans reached the second place.
