Quality + innovation

+ creativity = Passion!

The first flower bulbs will be delivered to Verver Export from the beginning of July. In total, we expect about 750 varieties from more than 300 suppliers at our production location in Heerhugowaard. The bulbs are immediately checked for quality and size upon arrival. From the moment they are put on location, there is only one thing that matters: ventilation!

At the end of November, the production hall will be completely cleaned and prepared for the arrival of the summer bulbs, which are stored in the “summer tent”. A makeshift tent occupying part of the production hall, surrounded by plastic bubble wrap to keep air circulation constant and provide the best possible climate for the dahlias and other summer bulbs.

In mid-March, we will start potting dahlias and annual summer plants, which are mainly used for our Summer Trams, the ready-to-use summer plant concepts. The last deliveries will take place in June. Just in time to make room for the spring flower bulbs again.

History

The company Verver Export was established in Heiloo in 1957 by Nicolaas Verver, focusing on the traditional export of flower bulbs to cut flower traders in the United Kingdom. At the time, it was a family business run by Nicolaas Verver with his wife Corrie. In 1988 their son Tijmen Verver joined the business. The business activities were restructured under his leadership. The focus shifted to exporting flower bulbs to the whole of Europe for use in public plantings and gardens. Today Verver Export operates in 11 European countries

Premises

Since April 2017 Verver Export has been based on the Alton greenhouse horticulture site at Hasselaarsweg 30 in Heerhuogowaard. The building comprises a greenhouse structure of around 100 x 100 m (10,000 m²), whereby approximately 60% is used for the propagation and cultivation of (pot) plants. The remainder is used for storage, processing and distribution.

Verver Export strives to work with as few emissions as possible, including by using the latest construction technologies and making provisions with regard to saving energy and its own energy production.

Team Verver Export

The organisation employs 20 to 40 people at its Heerhugowaard location, depending on the season. Together with the office staff and the production staff in Heerhugowaard (the Netherlands), as well as the sales representatives and field staff, Verver Export forms a community in which the core values of Verver Export are central.
