Etten-Leur, May 20th, 2020.
The VLT workforce had been saddened by some unexpected news. Mr. Cornelis van Leeuwen, VLT company founder, passed away suddenly on May 20th, 2020, at the respectable age of 86 following a brief illness.
Numerous colleagues and customers will readily and frequently remember Mr. Cornelis van Leeuwen for his unique and distinctive manner and his dedication, and, in doing so, will keep his meritorious memory alive. His work not only left its mark in the company, but also in people’s hearts. Many will miss our company founder not only as their valued business partner, but also as their sparring partner. When the pioneer, Mr. Cornelis van Leeuwen, set up his business on February 8th, 1958, he laid the foundations for a present day worldwide renowned company and manufacturer of high quality, professional vehicle test equipment and systems.
Even after 60+ years in business and selling his company to his son, Mr. Theo van Leeuwen, in September 2018 and up until his passing, Mr. Cornelis van Leeuwen remained closely and passionately attached to Van Leeuwen Test Systems as mentor and ambassador.
The entire company extends its sincere sympathy to Mr. van Leeuwen’s family and relatives. Should anyone wish to leave a personal condolence it can be done digitally to a condolence register via
