Manhole cover of Nering Bögel of the post-1928 period

Manhole cover of Nering Bögel of the post-1928 period
This manhole cover uses the Elkington patent 2-207. This type of cover was invented in 1928.

The company Nering Bögel has a history going back to 1756. It was founded in Deventer by Hendrik Lindeman, who sold it in 1825 to the Nering Bögel family. It became the biggest steel foundry in the Netherlands and in 1853 it was the first to use a steam engine. In its heyday it employed 1000 men. It didn't survive the Depression of the 1930s. In 1932 it was declared bankrupt. The then director J.A.C. Nering Bögel started a small trading firm, selling drain covers which were produced elsewhere. In 1950 this Nering Bögel company was sold to the other important drain-cover producer "De Globe". From 1955 the company moved to Weert. "De Globe" sold Nering Bögel in 1965 and then it became part of different investors and companies. From 2005 it is a self-contained company again.
