Very few companies in the Netherlands are entitled to call themselves “Royal”. Before receiving the honor “by Royal Warrant” the company is screened by the local and national government. If both authorities give positive approval to Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands, Her Majesty then grants the title, “by Royal Warrant”.
Only about 150 companies in the Netherlands are currently entitled to use the prestigious title, “by Royal Warrant”. In 2006, when the Kerckhaert company was 100 years old, Kerckhaert was inspected by the local and national governments. As a result of this, Kerckhaert was extremely honored to receive the “by Royal Warrant” in July 2008. All “Royal Warrant” enterprises are allowed to incorporate a crown in their logo.
