Both businesses wish to develop new buildings on the land in order to facilitate their rapidly-growing operations. “We have seen the increase in the trade of flowers and plants, and that our customers need more space. In order to be able to meet these demands, Royal FloraHolland is making land in Aalsmeer, Naaldwijk and Rijnsburg available for redevelopment,” explained Pieter Foekens, Real Estate and Leasing manager at Royal FloraHolland.
L&M Groep is one of the largest players in the international flowers sector. “With approx. 600 million tulips traded annually and the constant growth we’re experiencing, new premises are an absolute must,” said Jan Willem Leeuwenburg. “We are expanding significantly and want to use our various businesses to provide customers with a full-service solution. We can offer our customers a complete package, starting at purchasing and all the way through to ready-made products. The new building will allow us to better and more efficiently organize our work. It will also make it possible for our company to grow responsibly.”
Dingeman Hoek Groep consists of a range of different businesses. Together, they facilitate every link in the supply chain. The company delivers an assortment of quality flowers, plants and florists’ accessories. In the future, it will become increasingly important to be able to fill complex orders and make rapid deliveries. For this reason, Dingeman Hoek Groep has opted to develop a new building where speed, logistics and assortment are the three key pillars.
The Rijnsburg auction premises are fully under development. The direct connection to the A44 highway that was opened on 22 July 2016 has significantly improved the accessibility of the 180 trading companies situated on Royal FloraHolland’s premises. The quality of life and the traffic safety in the surrounding neighborhoods have also been considerably improved by the new connection.
Due to the significant demand for land, Royal FloraHolland has begun a preliminary investigation into the options regarding redeveloping the north side of the Rijnsburg premises. Redevelopments would consist of expanding FloraPark I to include parcels of land that are ripe for development.
