WP Haton – 50 years young!

In July 1963, the first stone of the WP Haton building in Panningen was laid by two little boys, Tonny and Emile Tonnaer, sons of grounder Harry Tonnaer.

The WP Haton history goes back even further: in 1949 Haton was founded by Harry Tonnaer in Sittard, a town in the dutch province Limburg. In Voerendaal, where a larger location was found, the company also grew quickly, so a new location was needed and found on the newly constructed Industrieterrein in Panningen  – up to today headquarter of WP Haton.

WP Haton, always on the move – even at the same location. Over the years a large canteen is built, the expedition moved and replaced for offices. Modernized, there is especially the last few years: the canteen is changed in a company restaurant, departments are merged into transparant office spaces, there is a professional test bakery built and a great experience space furnished, frequented by bakers from all over the world. Currently we are working hard to modernize the production halls.
