The management is in the hands of Erik Winkel who is
responsible for all technical and artistic aspects.
He is assisted by a staff that deals with financial affairs, the
secretariat, and the planning and preparations
for the maintenance staff.
The organ building department consists of two workshops: pipe building and woodwork. Each of the workshops is headed by its own manager.
The maintenance staff usually work on location. In order to reduce travelling times the tuners live in various parts of the country. Depending on the nature of the work, major maintenance activities may be carried out in our workshops in Zaandam.
From 1903 onwards H.W. Flentrop and D.A Flentrop were
directors and owners of Flentrop Orgelbouw.
Since the retirement of D.A. Flentrop in 1978, the shares of Flentrop
Orgelbouw B.V. have been held by the
employees by means of a managing company and share certificates.
The construction is such that the certificates can only be held by persons employed by the company. The majority of the employees make active use of this arrangement. This means that at shareholders' meetings the management gives account to the employees. There are two commissioners affiliated to the company who have had no other active connections with the organ building world.
Because there was no successor in Gebr.Vermeulen Weert, the director Frans Vermeulen took the initiative to team up with Flentrop. His firm has been a subsidiary of Flentrop Orgelbouw B.V. since 1998. After that date, Frans Vermeulen kept working with us until his retirement in 2004.
In 1987 Joost Vermeulen transferred the company Vermeulen Alkmaar to Flentrop. Joost Vermeulen was our maintenance manager for many years. One of his then employers still works for Flentrop.
In 1970 the firm De Koff was put into liquidation. The then current business was taken over by us, as were some of their employees.
