“Our tool trolleys are not famous just for their great storage functionality, but also for the appealing design. The Barber Shops in Leusden and Amersfoort, Netherlands use Bahco Tool Trolleys in a completely new context.”
The Barber Shop concept started over 20 years ago in the Dutch town Leusden. It was an intimate salon with a personal atmosphere and skilled barbers. Three years ago Vincent van Damme, a passionate barber who had worked in the shop for many years purchased the barbershop.
The Barber Shop was in desperate need of a renovation, so Vincent decided to do a total makeover and give the old barber tradition a modern touch and revamp the concept.
- Since I’m a traditional barber and only cut men’s hair, I wanted to dedicate a place for men to come and get their hair cut.
But that wasn’t the only vision he had. Instead of having a general barbershop he made it into a new lifestyle shop where men could come and have their hair cut whilst drinking a good cup of coffee; read men’s magazines, watch sports’, listen to music and have a beer.
The interior design was essential as Vincent wanted the atmosphere to reach the same high standard as the service. Therefore he came to think of the Bahco tool trolleys knowing Bahco as the premium brand. The trolleys were meant for storing all equipment needed for the barber.
Business was going well, so last year he opened his second Barber Shop in Amersfoort where he installed the new orange Bahco tool trolleys with the TModuleSystem that provides even greater tool storage capacity and organization.

Next year Vincent’s shop in Leusden will be closed for renovation and be replaced by a new, temporarily salon in a designed container. And of course he is making room for our Bahco trolleys! Read more about the project and Vincent’s Barber Shops on http://www.thebarbershop.nl/home/.
