Dear familymembers.

I'm Hans Van Landschoot from Belgium. I started to trace the family in 1995, it was a continuation of a longtime research of my late uncle LEON VAN LANDSCHOOT (died 1980).He did research for almost 30 years on the Van Landschoot family.
I want to thank the many cousins and other researchers who have helped put the the puzzle together. There are still many missing pieces to find. Sharing information is important. Please contact us with questions or if you have information to share.
Please check also this new website.

  • Matrassen ( Bedding) Van Landschoot (book4) (149 KB)
    Van Landschoot bestaat 75 jaar. In 1925 stichtte Willem Van Landschoot het bedrijf als éénmanszaak. Vanaf 1958 leidde zijn enige dochter de firma samen met haar echtgenoot. In 1978 werden hun beide zonen, Luc en Guy De Coninck, actief in het bedrijf. Vandaag staan Luc De Coninck en zijn echtgenote Rina in voor de productie en de aankopen. Guy De Coninck en zijn echtgenote Martine zijn verantwoordelijk voor de verkoop en de administratie. Tot in 1988 specialiseerde Van Landschoot zich in de aanmaak van alle types van matrassen. Door de acquisitie in 1988, van de firma HERMAT in Beaumont (B) kwamen daar lattenbodems en boxsprings bij, een perfecte aanvulling van het VL-aanbod. Op die manier is de groep Van Landschoot een leverancier geworden met een volledig assortiment zelf geproduceerde bedding artikelen. De slogan van VL is dan ook terecht: "Slaapcomfort van A tot Zzzz". ENGLISH......... THE STORY OF VAN LANDSCHOOT starts as early as 1925. In that year, it was Willem Van Landschoot who has founded a small one-person company, already then specialised in bedding. From 1958 on, his daughter and her husband have built out the company. In 1978, their 2 sons, Luc and Guy De Coninck, became active within the business. Nowadays, Luc De Coninck and his wife Rina manage the production and the purchase department. Guy De Coninck and his wife Martine take care of the administration and the commercial department. Till 1988 Van Landschoot has been specialised in the production of mattresses of all kind. In that year, the company HERMAT in Beaumont (B) has been acquired, which formed a perfect union with Van Landschoot, since the machinery in Beaumont was fit for the production of slatted bed frames and boxsprings. In this way, Van Landschoot became a full scale bedding group wich manufactures a complete range of all items for the bedroom. That's why the pay off sounds, with reason: "Comfortable Sleeping from A to Zzzz".
