Nieuwkoop Europe is a leading international company in interior landscaping and the related supply chain market. Our many plants and planters mostly find their way to business projects via interior landscapers, architects, exporters, florists and other green retailers. We carry out purchasing and sales activities in over 40 countries around the world.
Import and production of plants
Nieuwkoop Europe specialises in cultivating and acclimatising imported plants into a ‘hardened-off’ product suitable for the indoor climate. The plants come from selected growers, both at home and abroad, who produce especially for us. The nurseries are visited by us regularly to evaluate production and growth. This is how we guarantee a healthy and high-quality product.
After importing the pot plants, some of them are converted into the hydroculture system. Nieuwkoop Europe is one of the main founders of the modern hydroculture system. In the meantime, we have grown to become the leading producer of hydroculture in Europe. Besides our role as a producer, we are also an important trading partner within the ornamental plant sector. Thanks to our close cooperation with prominent growers, we can offer a wide range of green and flowering pot plants.
Import and product development of hardware
Nieuwkoop Europe’s hardware group consists of planters, decorative materials, artificial plants, green wall systems and all kinds of items that are needed for the implementation and maintenance of interior landscaping. To put a high-quality product range together, we work closely with leading producers and suppliers of premium-grade products at home and abroad.
Nieuwkoop Europe has been involved in the realisation of plantscaping projects for 50 years, and, along with our customers and architects, we have contributed many ideas. As a result, we know at first hand what is happening in the business market. We use this knowledge to improve and develop new products in cooperation with our producers.
Full service and logistics services
Nieuwkoop Europe gives high priority to full service. Our team is always ready to give advice and support where necessary. This could include solving complex logistics problems, providing advice on plant choice or the assembly of a complete product that can be immediately used in a project.
We are also happy to help with logistics solutions that meet the specific wishes of our customers, wherever they may be. From our premises in De Kwakel (in the immediate vicinity of Amsterdam Schiphol Airport and near the ports of Amsterdam and Rotterdam), Nieuwkoop Europe imports and exports many plants and pots on a daily basis. Optimal cooperation with various logistics partners enables us to provide fast and effective logistics solutions to more than 40 countries.
A ‘green’ supply chain
Nieuwkoop Europe takes corporate social responsibility seriously and we continue to take into account the impact that our activities have on the environment. We do this, among other things, by reducing our energy and water consumption and by taking responsibility for the use of pesticides. Read more...
But we don’t make the world that little bit greener on our own – we inspire our chain partners to join us in achieving this goal. In addition to the price and the quality of the products and services that we buy, we believe it is important that our suppliers grow or produce their products with respect for human health, animal welfare and the environmental impact. That is what we call ethical and sustainable purchasing. Together, we are making steps towards a green chain – from production to customer!
