Gone are the days when electric fencing was just for keeping farm animals in place. These days an electric fence is a modernised product that can be found in the garden or even at industrial areas to keep those nasty burglars at bay. Dutchman Hilko Dammer knows everything related to electric fencing and together with his wife runs the KOLTEC company in the Dutch city of Breda. Though Dammer and his wife have been owners of the KOLTEC company since 2004, the firm itself is much older than that. Dating back 75 years ago, KOLTEC started out in Breda as a factory that produced appliances in the field of electrics such as electric hot-water bottles and lampshades.
