Fokker was a Dutch aircraft manufacturer named after its founder, Anthony Fokker. The company operated under several different names, starting out in 1912 in Schwerin, Germany, moving to the Netherlands in 1919. During its most successful period in the 1920s and 1930s, it dominated the civil aviation market. Fokker went into bankruptcy in 1996, and its operations were sold to competitors.


Between 1911 en 1928, Anthony Fokker developed his company to what once was the largest aircraft manufacturer in the world with factories in Europe and America. However, Fokker lost ground when Boeing and Douglas increasingly applied aluminum in their new aircraft instead of wooden structures.

In those years, Stork (then Werkspoor) already supplied wood-structured wings to Fokker with over 800 wings being manufactured. Even more interestingly, both Fokker and Stork together with the Netherlands Airforce (then the Dutch Army Corps) developed the first Dutch helicopter under supervision of its designer ir. A.G. van Baumhauer. Recession unfortunately brought a quick end to this project.

Stork Aerospace designs, develops and produces structures, landing gears and electrical systems for the aerospace and defense industry, and supplies integrated maintenance services to aircraft owners and operators.

The group achieved a turnover of EUR 597 million in 2008 with 3,700 employees.
