It's added value to our customers who need this sort of packaging.
The first week of this month seems to be the best one to visit the Keukenhof. We had sunshine, blue sky and landscapers that are using our
tools to maintain the gardens. And when the professional gardeners are happy to use our tools, you can imagine how they work for you.
At the beginning of this months our thought went to our great great grandfather Willem de Wit who started our company in the year 1898. That means 118 years in the toolindustry. Millions of products sold all over the world. One of the oldest customers and supplier came to meet us for a cop of coffee, Mr. Marcel Kok from Streuding. His company bought their first products 85 years ago and he is still buying and supplying us.
