Wilfried Ameel, Tom’s father, starts up as a wholesaler in confectionary in Roeselare, under the name ‘Ameel Confiserie’.
The business moves from the Ieperstraat in Roeselare to a new building in the Industrieweg, Roeselare.
The one-man business ‘Ameel Confiserie’ becomes the corporation ‘Ameel Candy World’! For the company and its employees this was a historic step. Furthermore, two brand new house brands are born: Lollywood and Biscyland.
Wilfried’s son Tom joins the company.
Ameel Candy World grows and grows. Our warehouse becomes too small. The complete stock moves to the storage facilities of Veurinck, a neighboring firm in the industrial zone of Beveren-Roeselare.
United Sweets is founded by the family Ameel and becomes a sister company of Ameel Candy World. As a super specialized packing plant, United Sweets works in close cooperation with us.
Because of the growth, a drastic expansion of the building in the Industrieweg is much needed. Both offices and warehouse are thoroughly renovated. We actively start integrating the French market… and successfully!
We start using our brand new buildings in the Industrieweg, which entails a capacity expansion of 700%.
The confectionary wholesalers ‘Helva’ from Buggenhout and ‘Snoepworld Vetters’, situated in Wilrijk, bolster our ranks.
We reach the magical turnover of 1 billion… Belgian francs!
Ameel Candy World celebrates its 10th birthday. We transcend the threshold of 3000 customers. Our sales market undergoes a strong geographical expansion.
Ameel Candy World concludes agreements with Kloen. For every green bag of Lollywood candy sold, a certain amount goes to vzw Kloen. This npo supports organizations that bring sick children moments of happiness.
Introduction of the e-commerce. Implementation of brand new ERP-software, linked to an interactive platform for communication and real-time ordering on our new website. We are ready for the digital transformation.
