90 years of TMC


The year is 1927, the 8th of February. At the notary G.H.A. Snel in Weesp, the Netherlands, a deed is recorded for the establishment of the corporation "Taxameter en Controle-Apparaten Centrale", located in Amsterdam'. TMC is born!

In 1891, Wilhelm Bruhn brings his invention 'taximeter' on the market; a tool that automatically records the distance travelled to accurately measure for the taxi fare. In 1927 Mr. G. W. decision Pigtails are going along with his brother engaged in the sale and repair of this instrument.

On February 8th he establishes the company 'Taxameter en Controle-apparaten Centrale'. That day marks the birthday of TMC, so on February the 8th of this year we celebrate our ninetieth birthday.

Surely something to be proud of. Proud of our company and grateful for the opportunities we had in all those years. We will celebrate that birthday, of course, in various ways. In the course of the year we will tell you more about it. For now, we start with the presentation of our special anniversary logo.
