Kam’s Becomes Royal Brinkman Canada
On Jan. 16, the Kam’s – Royal Brinkman partnership was fully realized with the company name Kam’s Growers Supply officially changing to Royal Brinkman Canada. The new name and logo will be displayed on vehicles, buildings, web channels and more.
In January 2022, Kam’s Growers Supply became part of the Royal Brinkman Group. This allowed both companies to provide better service with a broader product range, inventory that is globally sourced but stocked locally, all supported by international knowledge and a team of local sales and agronomy professionals. The name change marks the full integration of Kam’s with the Royal Brinkman Group. Kam’s Growers Supply was founded in 2005 by Kameron Fordyce, who will remain on as general manager at Royal Brinkman Canada.
“It’s an exciting time for us here. We know our customers will continue to get fantastic service, which is very important to us. Plus, aligning with Royal Brinkman allows us to supply a highly specialized, globally sourced product portfolio at the most competitive pricing. We started as a small family business and now we’re part a bigger family business, with the same goals and values,” says Fordyce.
Royal Brinkman is also a family-owned organization, dedicated to creating a better and sustainable future for the entrepreneur in protected horticulture. Started in the Netherlands over 135 years ago, it now has fifteen branches and approximately 500 employees worldwide. The Royal Brinkman Group serves customers in more than 100 countries with a wide range of products: local-for-local.
One Team, One Brand, One Goal
Roy Middelburg, international area manager, says, “After making the final decision to expand our presence in Canada, it was crucial we partner with a company that really understood our mission. At the end of the day, we are all about helping horticultural entrepreneurs improve to get the most out of their crops. It’s ultimately about the people and communities we serve, and the team at Kam’s was living that every day. The past year has been great, and we’re really looking forward to this next chapter of becoming one brand; Royal Brinkman Canada. Local growers can expect the best service, from a unified team, working passionately together in Canada and the Netherlands.”
