Apollo, Ryson’s Parent company turns 175, with Royal Honors
Ryson’s Parent Company Apollo Group Celebrates their 175 Birthday, and they get to wear the Royal Crown.
Today, on the 11th of February 2022, the APOLLO Group not only celebrates their 175th birthday, but can also announce that they carry the title ‘Royal APOLLO’ Group.
The predicate announces an acknowledgement from the King of Holland – For having a good reputation and symbolizes the respect, valuation, and trust of the King. An impeccable reputation and financial stability are mandatory to receive this honor.
To be eligible for such a distinguished honor, an organization must hold a highly prominent position within its field, be of national significance and have been in existence for at least a hundred years. The size of the company, its operational management, its workforce, and its revenue are all taken into account. The King of Holland himself is the only entity authorized to confer this designation.
How does this benefit Ryson?
From the beginning of Ryson, we have always been a sister company with Apollo. We have pooled resources , engineering and manufacturing techniques. Additionally, we have essentially manufactured the same products on opposite sides of the pond. The only change with the acquisition is that it’s more of a parent – subsidiary relationship on a world-wide scale.
The worldwide group approach is tremendously beneficial – Especially since the pandemic has created supply chain disruption. Ryson has been very pro-active on procuring materials necessary to continue delivering our Spirals on time. For example, If a domestic resource is scarce, we have the infrastructure to get it from Europe or Asia instead.
With Claudia van den Pol (sixth generation) at the head of the company, the APOLLO Group has grown in recent years into an international company in a niche market. With production sites in Holland, Thailand, and the United States, sales offices, and service centers in China and India, it can serve the entire world. This predicate has unprecedented added value and prestige for the APOLLO Group. The inclusion of the Royal Crown in the logo and the addition of ‘Royal’ has international allure and can benefit future ties with new partners and customers all over the world.
Ryson will still run and operate as an American Company and will retain the same level of excellence, but with the added value of world-wide support and access to resources.
