Company visit Thursday 29 September Dreumel the Netherlands
Dreumel, a small village in the land of Maas and Waal in the province Gelderland, The Netherlands. Beautifully situated on the river Waal, surrounded by beautiful dykes and vast fields with many livestock and fruit crops. On one of these dykes the company PG Kusters BV is situated. A real family business with 54 years of Kusters family history. Piet and An Kusters became the Philips- Duphar dealership in 1968 with a product portfolio for fruit cultivation.
Over the years, Piet and An steadily developed their business and got to know other markets, including livestock farming and mushroom cultivation. Children John and Silvia are currently running this family business. They continue to build on the solid foundation laid by their parents. The company is strongly characterised by its level-headedness, modesty, honesty, transparency and loyalty. Several employees have been with them for a long time; Martien van Lieshout has been active within the livestock branch for 41 years. Geert Brink ran the mushroom department in the beginning and handed over the baton to Pascal van Schijndel quite a few years ago.
Pascal has been active in the mushroom industry for 30 years, of which 20 at PG Kusters BV. "The great thing about our company is that we have short lines of communication, half a word is enough, so we can switch quickly and provide the customer with their products very rapidly". We are always reachable, a lot is possible with us and we solve everything". PG Kusters BV supplies various products to mushroom growers such as slide nets, tunnel cloths, growing mats, foils, pesticides, clothing, cleaning agents and disinfectants. Through years of experience and knowledge within this branch, they have built up a nice loyal customer base.
Owner Silvia: "Our focus is on quality, we are experiencing a calm and healthy growth that we can facilitate with our team. We keep both feet on the ground and make sure we continue organising everything with the right attention and focus. From product to delivery, we have everything in-house. The biggest sales market is the Netherlands, this is where our roots, passion and most of our knowledge lie." Nursery mats and slide nets are runners-up within the company; as an official dealer of Ten Cate Geo, PG Kusters BV handles the procurement, supply and repair of these mats.
