Keyser & Mackay was founded in 1894 in Amsterdam. In the starting period, the business was concentrated in the coating industry and the trade with the Dutch Indies. In 1908, a second office was opened in Rotterdam. The Amsterdam office was managed by Mr.J.I. Keyser, while the Rotterdam office was managed by Mr. A.C. Mackay. The Amsterdam office moved to its current location at Leidsegracht 19 in 1926.
