About Spaas


"Here, the candle has been burning since 1853"

Since its creation as a small, local candle factory back in 1853 in the town of Hamont in Limburg, Spaas has become one of the most important European players in the candles market. Over the past 165 years, we have grown steadily. With more than 250 employees, Spaas is not only market leader in Belgium, but also a respected international supplier with a strong home base in Europe.

Down through the years, Spaas has remained a strong family-owned company. The company is now being run by the fifth generation. Besides our production site at Hamont, we have a factory in Poland and a Europe-wide sales organization.




Mission and Values

Spaas wants to surprise and inspire people with products that create an ambiance and add a touch of warmth to their lives. By responding to modern-day trends, we make it possible for all consumers to personalize their homes using the Spaas range of products. That’s why we offer candles and accessories in different colors, shapes, and scents. For every season or occasion, consumers will find the right candles.




Our history

From wax bleaching to an automated candle factory: when Hendrik-Jan Spaas started bleaching beeswax in 1853, he might never have thought that five generations later we would still build on his foundation.
