The Marginpar head office is completely new and equipped with all modern gadgets. It is an inspiring workplace that is completely attuned to the new way of working at every stage.
At the docks, for instance, the aircraft panels are now unloaded fully automatically. Pits have been fitted in the floor for the plates to sink into so that the employees can un-stack the boxes of flowers at a comfortable height. The cold chain is correct from front to back as well, as properly conditioned transport and storage increase quality and extend the vase life of the flowers. At the office level, the new building is also equipped to meet the company's growth ambitions.
Opening the product street with Royal FloraHolland
Sierteeltstraat is part of Aalsmeer-Oost, Royal FloraHolland's newest development location. A new product street has been built at the back, giving us direct access to the marketplace and our sales partners in Europe. This allows us to work even more efficiently and reduces our road transport by 50 to 60%.
Rob Koning, co-CEO: "The new head office is a place of significance. We want to be close to our customers. Be able to respond quickly to changing requirements. Fine-tuned delivery for our wide range. We continue to grow and need to work more and more efficiently. In our new head office at Aalsmeer-Oost, everything falls into place."
