Duynplant and Duijn-Hove to continue together

As of 1 January 2022 Duynplant and Duijn-Hove will be working together. As the company names suggest, the companies are not strangers. The family companies are reuniting in order to stand firm in the future and to guarantee continuity.

The shared history of Duynplant and Duijn-Hove in glasshouse horticulture goes back to 1953. Back then, Arie van Duijn started growing cauliflower, lettuce and tomatoes on the Tuinstraat in De Lier. After moving to the Crezeelaan in De Lier, sons Martin and Ful took over the business from their father Arie in 1986. In 1992 both brothers agreed to continue separately. Martin with Duynplant and Ful with Duijn-Hove. Meanwhile, the third generation is already working for Duijn-Hove: Alex, Hugo and Guido van Duijn.

Stronger future together
In 2022, the companies will work together intensively. With common roots, the two companies have a strong bond. Their product range, working methods and clientele are a perfect match. Both companies place high demands on the quality of their products. "We both import and cultivate a wide range of green plants and want to keep innovating with new products. By working together, we can exchange more knowledge," says Alex of Duijn-Hove. "Alex, Hugo, and Guido see the future and the market in the same way as Martin does. That's why we have a good connection and working together is a good and logical next step. Together, we can professionalize the sales and expand the range," says Martin of Duynplant.

Together, both companies enter 2022 with a lot of confidence. "We will use the strongest sides of both companies and bring them together step by step."
