From single handed to Derks Automotive group

Car company Jack Derks and Derks Specialties

After the completion of the HTS Automotive technique, it became serious in 1991 for Jack Derks: the workshop in the barn of his parents in Schaijk became an official automobile company.

Initially still as a repair and maintenance company but soon the specialism followed commercial vehicles and had to be moved to a larger location in 1994.

In the meanwhile his brother Ruud was also graduated and had been active at a more technical level for quite some time within the company. Therefore the brothers decided in 1999 to start a new enterprise next to the car company. This became a bodywork company specialized in the construction, installation and adaptation of commercial vehicles.




Derks Vans

Since both companies saw more growth potential after a few years, it was decided to merge the companies and continue in one common location. In Uden the current company was housed in 2004 with the focus on providing total functional mobility for a wide range of customers.

But the most important thing: a total company with all disciplines under one roof.

The current company is fully specialized in the market of light commercial vehicles and offers a complete package of sales/ lease, production, repair and maintenance in our own company.

At the location in Uden, the company is now equipped with a team of about 25 specialists with the same sense of service and quality as the two brothers.




Derks Automotive Group

The company also clearly chooses a number of product groups in which they are market leader or  operate at the top of the market. Derks Automotive Group is strong in the market of refrigerated and freezer cars because they are built and maintained entirely indoors. The same applies to wheelchair transport; the workshops are fully equipped for the construction of vehicles for the transport of disabled persons and wheelchair passengers.

With the acquisition of The Hearse & Limo Company in 2016, the market for funeral vehicles was added to this, Derks Funeral Mobility.

However, the company was already familiar with these products for a long time; in 1999 the first transfer vehicles and hearses were built in their own workshop.

The last discipline which was added to the Derks Automotive Group in 2016 was an own Leasing company. Functional mobility is herein also the overtone; Derks Lease is fully specialized in the leasing of commercial vehicles, from short to full operational lease.




In short:
Always on the road, always stylish. Therefore Derks.
