Some History:
Wildenberg BV was founded in 1954 in Zeist, the Netherlands, by Wildenberg Sr. The son of Mr Wildenberg, Etienne Wildenberg, also worked in the company, and took over in 1988.

Recently David, Etienne’s son, also joined the company. He is the third generation involved with the company, which makes Wildenberg BV a real family-business.

How it went further:
Selling parts was a beginning but the sale of military vehicles also became a part of the business. The company grew steadily and soon outgrew the location in Zeist, and relocated to its current location in Rhenen. The inventory kept growing and eventually the warehouse had to be expanded. This created more space for the enormous number of parts and military vehicles.

The warehouse:

All these years of experience have resulted in a stock of over 2300 square meters! All parts are cataloged and displayed by type.

60th year anniversary:
In 2014 our company exists 60 year. And we are going to celebrate that! With as start the new years drink on January 18 from 2 am to 6 am. The rest of the year we got lot’s of discounts. Package deals and free merchandise. We are also planning a party weekend and a Army-verhicle tour.

    again we see a large warehouse overseas – the one in France is much like this – seems to be many more military Willys over there. Looks to be easier to restore in Europe and Central/South America then here

    makes sense to see more jeeps overseas than here, since the war was there. cheaper to leave them than ship them.

    As I understand it, W/O also had an agreement with the government not to bring most of them back. Had the army done that, it would have bit into W/Os civilian sales. Somewhere I have a document that supports that claim.

    My initial reaction was, “Wow, now that’s a jeep lot.” Then I saw shelves of them in the background!
