Timeline Best Base 20 years

Best Base timeline 20 years

It's been 20 years since BestBase opened. The project was a result of Brabant companies setting up a factory in Wijchen, in which many rolls of carpet underlay were produced with a recycling product that has unique qualities. No wonder at the time, we were able to interest Mr. Jan Kamminga (at the time, the Queen's Commissioner) to conduct the official opening.His speech has always stayed with me. His broad concern for the environment, his infectious enthusiasm for recycling, and his sincere appreciation for entrepreneurship were at the heart of his speech.The words of the time still apply 20 years later.

Projects

In 20 years Estillon has provided several large and beautiful projects with underlays from the Best Base range. One of the last projects is the Grand Mosque in Tajikistan. From the sound tests the customer had arranged, the Starbase 8 mm came out as the best. This was an important argument to continue with this carpet underlay. The use of a good underlay therefore makes an important contribution to the improvement of the acoustics.
