Florist Holland, HilverdaKooij to Merge

Florist Holland and HilverdaKooij have announced plans to to merge.

Both companies from De Kwakel have individually been active in the breeding and propagation of flowers and plants for more than 40 years.

According to a statement released by the companies, the merger will help “fulfill our ambitions for growth and innovation. By combining our knowledge and resources, we are able to further improve and expand our assortment. The joint focus is, among other things, on investing in automation and innovative cultivation and breeding techniques.”

“In the start-up period, we regularly discussed our joint ambitions and the drive for innovation with each other. It soon became clear that our goals were the same. With all the possibilities we create by combining our companies, this is the only logical step for the future,” says Jan Hilverda, managing director at HilverdaKooij.

“We’ll turn two strong companies into one. In everything. This means that we will be working from a single location in the Netherlands. The first step has already been taken with the purchase of 4 hectares of land adjacent to the Florist site. The aim is that from 2020 we will all be working at the same location”, says Melchior Moen, managing director at Florist Holland.
