Corno started in 1984 in a small workshop behind his family home in Roelofarendsveen. Here he designed Hooymans' first successful product: The "Hebo Halter". The Hebo Halter was developed to easily and quickly pack flowers and plants in sleeves. The product is used worldwide and seen as an indispensable tool at many nurseries and packaging areas. The Hebo Halter has since been constantly improved and is still in production in the year 2017.
Hooymans Products quickly grew and the company moved to a larger space. Since 2007, Hooymans Products is located in a spacious premises on the industrial estate the Lasso, also in Roelofarendsveen. This provides space for production, assembly, office, various workshops and a warehouse - all under one roof.
