BREAKING NEWS! BBT acquires German top quality Rubber manufacturer Fa. Hagen!

For years we do sell top quality rubbers manufactured by Ernst Peter Hagen and his wife Ursula.

After Herr Hagen passed away after a very short and totally unfair battle against cancer on July 23 earlier this year it was not sure we would ever be supplied again with the high quality Made In Germany taillight and license light seals for early beetle we’re distributing from him for the last 15 years.

After some serious conversations we made a deal with the entire family Hagen and we bought inventory, toolings and all rights to the products.

Last week we drove to Germany and picked up all the tooling and remaining inventory and visited the producer.

A very well receiving by Frau Hagen was a very nice reception!

  1. Goed bezig bob,toch is het leuk om te zien wat jij allemaal hebt bereikt,ik volg het al vanaf het begin en de laatste keer dat ik jouw lijfelijk gesproken heb is dan ook al weer een mooie tijd terug.ik kwam toen bij jouw met me knalrode kever helemaal uit de kop van noordholland om spullen te kopen in dat kleine schuurtje achter het huis.je had toen ook een dealerschap in Nederland bij een niet nader te noemen bedrijf.jij was nog verbaasd dat ik van zo ver spullen kwam halen in Brecht terwijl ik het ook in Nederland kom halen,maar toen ik tegen jouw zei dat ik rechtstreeks bij jouw goedkoper uit was was dat dealerschap ook heel snel afgelopen.ik kom binnenkort nog wel een keer jullie kant op en hoop dat jij er dan ook bent.keep up the good work bob.greetings from noordholland
