The NV Glimfabriek was a factory in Overschie that existed from 1918-1970.
The company was founded in 1918 from a collaboration between NV Oliefabriek Schiedam, founded in 1914, and a wholesaler of detergents and cleaning articles. Initially it was located at Korenaarstraat 45-53 in Rotterdam, but the company grew and soon moved to a new complex on Overschieseweg in Overschie. This characteristic building had a square tower on which the word: Glim was written in large letters.
More than a hundred people worked at the company's peak, but the Glimfabriek was taken over by Koninklijke Zwanenberg Organon and closed in 1970.
The company became known by the slogan: Be smart, use Glim.
