After World War II, the company produced nylon stockings. But soon
it went broke. Willy-nilly this was to have a marked influence on
Dutch pension fund laws: as the company's pension fund had invested an
important part of its money in the company itself, it could subsequently
not meet its obligations to the pensioners. As a direct consequence of
this, a new law was created: the "Pensioen- en Spaarfondsenwet", which
stipulates that pension funds may only invest 5% of their assets in their
own company, the exception being that more is allowed if the pension fund
has an ample reserve surplus cover. (Source: J. de Jonge, Doorn, NL).
Jack Beeren, one of the Sons mentioned on the certificate, and who
signed the certificate as member of the board of directors, emigrated in
1950 to the USA, where he founded a textile company in South Carolina,
called "Klernits". He died in 2000 at the age of 95. "Klernits" is now
the company that makes Polo Shirts for Ralph Laueren. (Source: David Dunn,
San Francisco, USA, descendant of Jack Beeren)
