Eijgenhuijsen was founded in 1910 as a trading company in coal. In 1913 Eijgenhuijsen became a moving company.
The years of experience in moving, led in 1971 to an addition to the name Eijgenhuijsen: “precisievervoer”. The term stands for the transport and handling of high-quality and sensitive products (such as copiers, computers, peripherals, medical and scientific equipment).
After some detours through Amsterdam, Weesp and Zeist, Eijgenhuijsen finally moved to Ruurlo in 1987 .
In 1996 Eijgenhuijsen moved to its current location on the “Spoorstraat”. In 2000 a new building was put into use, and Eijgenhuijsen also celebrated the 90th anniversary.
In 2002 Eijgenhuijsen opened a thirth building in Ruurlo. In 2005 the hub in Drachten was put into use. In 2006 also the fourth building in Ruurlo was put into use.
Due to a take-over Eijgenhuijsen got access to a facility in Den-Bosch in 2007.
In 2010 Eijgenhuijsen existed 100 years. Eijgenhuijsen received in this year the title: “bij Koninklijke Beschikking Hofleverancier (royal supplier)”. The 100th anniversary was celebrated.
