Geopex Products (Europe) B.V. formerly operating under the name of Gouderak B.V. of Gouderak, The Netherlands was founded in 1957 when it started the trading in reeds and reed products for the civil engineering market. Their products were particularly used for erosion protection along the banks of rivers and canals and in coastal defense works. Later on the Company started the production of and trade in garden wood and log cabins. With these products the Company is a leading player in todayís Do-It-Yourself market in Europe.
In the early sixties Gouderak BV was one of the pioneers who started the development of synthetic geotextiles as a replacement for the natural products like reeds and brushwood. Under the Dutch Delta Scheme an extensive research and development program was carried out which contributed† significantly to the present widespread acceptance of geotextiles as a valuable construction material.
