With its headquarters in a modern, purpose-built location in Utrecht, Ampco Flashlight Rental was formed in 2011 by a combination of Ampco Flashlight Group rental operations, which had been individual market leaders for over 30 years.
Flashlight was founded as a one-man business involved in renting lighting equipment. Prior to establishing his business, the founder had handled the lighting for a theatrical tour of Herman van Veen, a well-known Dutch cabaret artist, and invested in ligthing equipment for the tour.
Gerard Jongerius started to also sell lighting equipment. To ensure the succes of this expansion, he hired his first employees that year.
