Who is CLS
CLS was founded in January 1999 as a joint venture between Sjaak van der Meer and Ronald Brouwer.
Sjaak van der Meer and his company, van der Meer Sleutelservice, have been in the locksmith business for more than 25 years. Since 1984, van der Meer Sleutelservice has been chosen as supplier of locking systems to Holland Casino when they started developing their own systems for the table game department. Since 1991, van der Meer Sleutelservice has been supplying all the keys and locks for the various Holland Casino buildings and since 1995 also all security locks for the slots department.
Ronald Brouwer worked with Holland Casino for almost 13 years with the last 9 years spent in the gaming department at Holland Casino headquarters. He was responsible for all gaming equipment, procedures and processes, R&D and installations in the casinos, and was instrumental in the opening of 11 new casinos. During that time, in close consultation with Van Der Meer Sleutelservice, they developed many solutions to problems relating to locking systems for gaming tables, slot machines and building security.
Having started with Holland Casino 25 years ago, CLS have in the meantime supplied their locking systems solutions to casinos all over the world counting international groups such as Casinos Austria International, Groupe Partouche, Westspiel and Casino Cosmopol to their valued customers.
