Our history commenced in 1921 with the establishment of Bosman Greenhouses in Aalsmeer, where we pioneered the development of durable greenhouse structures made of wood, steel, and aluminum. In 1968, Frans van Zaal founded a heating and cooling installation company in a neighboring town, forging a close partnership.
Soon after, we began supplying internal transport to a major player in the United States, opening the door to global expansion. In 1988, we expanded our core activities to include water and electrical installations, and in 2014, we ventured into robotics. This marked the point at which the entities Bosman and Van Zaal came together under a single owner. In 2018, we relocated to a state-of-the-art headquarters in Greenpark Aalsmeer, marking a new era in our journey. Our story culminates with the inception of an internal startup, dedicated to the development of software solutions.
We aspire to lead the way in elevating horticulture and agriculture to new levels of excellence. Our mission is to empower growth through innovative solutions in the fields of insight, movement, and growth. We excel in turnkey projects, offering flexibility and accessibility. We create efficient solutions from vision to implementation, with ongoing 24/7 support.
With expertise in plant production and a focus on quality and innovation, we provide integrated solutions for food, floriculture, pharma, and AgTech. Our innovations optimise cultivation, space, energy, and labour. We set the benchmark in horticulture, trusted by knowledge-intensive frontrunners worldwide.
