Today, served by Sola
Cutlery Design and Solutions
Since 1922, Sola the Netherlands has built its reputation and business on providing stylish designs and the highest quality cutlery and service equipment.
Today, we design and produce cutlery and service equipment that is used all around the world in the domestic, hospitality, travel and service industry.
From humble beginnings in 1868 when patriarch Johannes Albertus Adolf Gerritsen first opened a jewelry store in Amsterdam, the entrepreneurial spark was ignited.
In 1922 Marius J Gerritsen started the company Sola as we know it today, at the Van Reenenweg in Zeist, from where it still operates most of it’s business.
That innovative mind and craftsmanship was passed on to the next generation of the Gerritsen family, who are now celebrating the 100th anniversary of Sola the Netherlands.
In our long history, quality at competitive prices has always been paramount. Everything we make comes with a 10-year warranty. We take pride and have confidence in all that we produce.
Our commitment to customer service is founded on the concept of great designs and the highest quality products at affordable prices.
