Family business Aablo, which was founded in 1991 by brothers Herald and Arthur Spaargaren, exports cut flowers and potted plants to wholesalers, event & wedding planners, and florists. The company employs 35 people at its Aalsmeer premises preparing tailor-made orders for customers in 30 different countries, including Germany, Switzerland, Spain, and Portugal.
Aablo was looking for a partner to help it further grow its customer portfolio. This was found in OZ-Hami, which combines the power of flower export companies OZ Export, Hamifleurs, Van Dam, and Barendsen. As of January 2022, Aablo’s activities will also fall under the OZ-Hami banner.
