Cigar factory "De Olifant" Tobacco Manufacturer Henk van der Sluis dreamt of a cigar production with a small quantity, but great quality. Due to its large experience in the industry he had his own ideas about quality. He was able to purchase several buildings on De Voorstraat in Kampen to realize his dream. He bought the tobacco cutting company from H. Meulenkamp. After that he installed old but functioning machines and began the cigar production called "De Olifant". De Olifant is committed to maintain the charming, cultural and historical heritage. This results in 10,000 visitors per year, who come to see the unique characteristic factory. The municipalities of Zwolle and Kampen worshipped De Olifant with the "Heritage Prize" in 2010. Sigarenfabriek De Olifant was proclaimed "Entrepreneur of the Year on May 21, 2012.
