From then to now
Jansen’s Overseas was founded by Rein Jansen in 1964. After he completed his advanced elementary education and finished secondary horticultural school in Lisse, at 21 years of age he started renting various parcels of land for cultivating flower bulbs. A few years later, he purchased a piece of land with a flower bulb barn on it in the Schippersvaartweg in Noordwijkerhout. Rein worked in the nursery in the spring, summer and fall; in the winter he travelled throughout Europe and the USA marketing his bulbs. This is how he was able to build up a solid clientele.
Jansen’s Overseas B.V. is still situated in the heart of the bulb-growing area (Bollenstreek), but a lot has changed since the company was founded. In addition to the nursery and a fast-growing trading organization, we started raising bulbs in crates and pots in 1984. These raised flower bulbs are marketed in various delivery stages, responding to our customers’ wishes and needs.
Son-in-law Dennis van der Krogt has been working at Jansen’s Overseas B.V. since 1996, and he has been a part of the management board since 2010. Roland Duindam joined the management team at the same time.
Jansen’s Overseas B.V. has developed into a state-of-the-art company whose priority is to deliver products of superior quality. Characteristic of this family-run business is its high degree of involvement, strong relationship with customers and continuous willingness to go the extra mile for maximum customer satisfaction.
