The Chamlon Story

Inspired by a Rich History

The history of Chamlon dates back to 1854, Lambert's father was enterprising and had several businesses in Oisterwijk around 1820: an inn, a tavern where horses could rest and where changed. And a saddlery. His son Lambert thought the quality of the leather that came from Waalwijk was just so-so. “So he went to live there. He learned tanning, then started his own tannery.

Wim Mombers was the last descendant in the 100-year-old tanning company L. Mombers NV. In 1975 the doors of the Tanning company L. Mombers closed permanently. Wim Mombers had made a splash with the invention of the synthetic chamois. “It was even better than a leather chamois. He started a new company on the premises of the old tannery at the Famous Langstraat in Waalwijk called Mombavlies BV.

In 1990 the family Van Der Maas & Logtenberg bought the Mombavlies company and moved the production to a new build factory in the small town of Ootmarsum in the mid east of the Netherlands. They renamed the Mobavlies company to Chamlon BV. At the beginning of the year 2000 Chamlon developed the Microfiber-PU cloth and became a leading manufacturer of smart cleaning cloths.

Driven by Passion

In 2014 I got the chance to continue the company of my parents. From origin I am a chemical engineer and I have a strong passion for product development. Based on the belief that household products are not low-interest products and good quality cleaning tools will save time for more joy in life, together with my team we have started redefining our market, to lift cleaning tools to a higher level and to put our customers ahead of the curve. From a unique product development approach, we are developing high-quality products, innovative production technologies, and innovative smart technology.
