a Family Business

Far East Pioneer.

A real pioneer in the field of importing from the Far East was Fokke Johan Kingma, who started importing shoes in the late 1950’s. In 1973 his middle son, Fokke, joined his father’s business. In this period the business was called Kingma Agenturen, and the Kingma men were located in Amsterdam-Buitenveldert. On February 6, 1981 UTS was founded and father and son Fokke became partners.  After some successful years the family business extended when the youngest son René, and a little later eldest son Robbert,  joined the team.

In 1986 the Kingma’s moved the business to Weesp. Unfortunately father Kingma Senior † 1988 didn’t get long to enjoy the new location. Sadly the eldest son, Robbert † 1996 isn’t active in the business anymore either.

Adjusted to the changing market, importing from the Far East has remained. However, the way how and the type of products has changed tremendously. Throughout the years UTS the source has developed into the expert in the field of promotional bags.

At the moment, the management of UTS consists of five Kingma’s. A new generation of Fokke Senior and Junior, René and the women Marlon and daughter Sharon Kingma. They are too busy with their specified tasks to talk about family matters, which explains why the collaboration within the business goes so well.

“Money doesn't buy elegance. You can take an inexpensive sheath, add a pretty scarf, gray shoes, and a wonderful bag, and it will always be elegant.”
