Potveer BV declared bankrupt

The Dutch manufacturer and supplier of machines and processing lines for the floriculture industry Potveer BV was declared bankrupt yesterday. The bankruptcy follows a suspension of payment, ruled by the local court only three days earlier, on March 9, 2018.

The bankruptcy seems to come like a bolt from the blue. Last year, the company installed processing lines at growers all over the world. Also the company was present at several horticultural exhibitions worldwide.

The appointed administrator is not available for comment yet, nor could we reach the company itself for a reaction. The website has been taken offline.

Potveer BV
Potveer BV has been a renowned player in the construction of machines and processing lines for the floriculture industry. The history of the Holland based company dates back to 1926. Due to the bankruptcy, a few dozen people have lost their jobs.
