Maarten Taal Sr. is the founder of Taalman dating back to 1970. As an immigrant from The Netherlands and with his engineering background, started up a one man operation business in machining and servicing the local radiator shops. As time went on, working hard and establishing a good reputation, the company prospered and grew to a successful family business today. Through the growing years Lainie Taal, wife of Maarten worked in the accounting department. As the children got older they also got involved in the business. First to start, was the oldest son Brian, followed later by sister Riekie, brother Maarten Jr. and sister Pauline.
Currently Brian Taal and Riekie Roncinske remain active in the business.
