History Condor Group
Condor Group evolved from Condor Carpets founded in 1992 by the two brothers Jan and Gerrit Hoekman, at that time together with their partner Teus van Beek. It was located on Gildenweg in Hasselt. After 1998, the business was continued by the two brothers and the foundations were laid for the family business where the second generation has now also joined.
Establishing Condor Carpets

Expansion and relocation
After two years of growth, Condor Carpets moved to more spacious premises on the Randweg in Hasselt. These premises are still part of our location in Hasselt.
First major purchase

Further expansion of product range
