Omefa has been providing total solutions in plastic injection moulding for over 40 years. Thanks to our many years' experience and extensive expertise in this field, we can take care of the entire process for you, from conception to the delivered end product. Continuity, flexibility and reliability are central to our efforts.
What we do
We can produce any plastic product with injection moulding. We guarantee high quality, including for high-volume production. Our expertise and experience allow us to provide valuable input and advice at every step of the process.
What material is needed? What type of mould? What is the best ration between moulding costs and product price? We have everything we need on site to produce the right mould for you.
We can easily adjust our production if your product turns out to be successful. Thanks to our MultiMould system, we can add moulds as needed without losing past investments. In other words, we can produce larger volumes without capital loss.
Our injection-moulding plant is equipped with robots so that your product is handled optimally. Because product removal is an automated process, quality can be checked at any time. After moulding, your product is assembled (if necessary), packaged and logistically processed.
What we don't do
Flexibility is a priority for us, but there are limits to our services. In order to deliver a professional end result that meets the highest standards, we follow a number of simple house rules.
- Injection moulding is not suitable for small quantities.
- We cannot invest in moulds if production is uncertain or the production runs are too small.
- We do not process environmentally unsafe materials such as PVC and dyes with heavy metals. Read more about our CSR policy.
- For reasons of continuity and quality, we do not use Chinese moulds. We have had more bad than good examples of this from Asia. If you wish to use these anyway, we will not be able to guarantee quality and delivery time.

Smartest construction product
Omefa started as an emery cloth factory and machining shop. That changed when André Soederhuizen joined the company in 1975. He introduced plastic injection moulding and Omefa started producing products which have now become legendary, such as pin badges, waving hands and smurfs.
A big fire burned the company to the ground in 1978, but production resumed in 1979. During that time Omefa was already working closely with J. van Walraven, an installation company specialised in pipe mounting systems.
Omefa also started specialising in powder coating and sheet metal punching. Important orders from that period were fluorescent lighting fixtures and the large metal structures mounted on the fronts of all Gamma building supplies stores in the Netherlands.
Omefa became a true family firm around 1990 when the second generation of Soederhuizens joined the Omefa team. Sons Michael and Dizzy gained experience working in all departments and operations of the company.
From the end of 2000, the focus increasingly shifted to toolmaking and plastic injection moulding. By that time, Dizzy (Commercial Director) and Michael (General Director) had taken over the company.
Omefa decided to move away from metal and focus entirely on plastic products and injection moulding. In 2004, Omefa relocated to the current premises at Transportweg in Nieuwkoop.
In 2011, the company Southern Plastics was founded in Chile in partnership with a Chilean bulb grower and a Dutch bulb grower. Southern Plastics produces 400,000 flower bulb crates a year.
In 2013, Warp – a company that sells plastic heating and cooling systems developed by Omefa – was founded in the Netherlands.
In 2016, Omefa’s corporate style was renewed and the company got a new general director: John van der Voorn. New international activities are also underway. In 2017, Omefa will begin injection moulding in the Czech Republic.
