Curver started as a small family business in 1949 and became one of the pioneers in the use of plastics from products for everyday use

Brother-in-law P. Curtius and A. Verschuren started in May 1949 in Tilburg (the Netherlands) with the production of tubular glass for the pharmaceutical and cosmetic industry. The company was given the name Curver, a combination of the surnames of initiators. From 1954, Curver made the end caps of their tubular glass from plastic. At the time, many companies were still skeptical about the use of plastic. The solidity of traditional materials such as wood, metal and glass was emphasized.

Because Curver is one of the first companies to have an eye for the possibilities of plastic, the company is developing into a trendsetter in this area.

The company brought strong, durable copies in striking colors, traditional household items such as storage boxes, bottle carriers, laundry baskets, sewing boxes and waste bins.

In 1966 the current DSM took over 40% of the interest. during this period, the company looked for alternatives because the coal mines closed.

A year later they opened a factory in Brunssum that remained in production until 2001. In 1968 Curver closed the factory in Tilburg where the tubular glass was produced. After that, the company focuses entirely on plastic: from household products and packaging materials to industrial applications.

In 1972 DSM took over the company completely. In 1998, Curver was sold by DSM to the American competitor Rubbermaid Inc. In 2005, the European activities of Rubbermaid and Curver were transferred to the European Plastic Group, part of the Israeli group of companies Keter. This is the worldwide de This group is one of the largest producers and suppliers of consumer plastic products worldwide.

Curver has not used dyes containing toxic metals since 1984.
