Bosman Van Zaal designs and develops complete horticultural projects and systems for the production of food, floricultural products, starting materials and pharmaceutical crops. For about 100 years now. The knowledge and experience we have gained forms the basis of our current organisation, which is a leader in the international horticultural world, the pharmaceutical industry and the science sector.
We want to contribute to smarter and more sustainable solutions for plant production systems because the world’s population is growing enormously and demands solutions. Solutions we can offer. To this end, we employ more than 60 engineers, who continuously respond to the very latest developments in horticultural technology and use integrated data techniques. We create the solutions and systems needed to make our clients successful.
The preconditions for our work are clear: effective, sustainable and socially responsible. Wherever in the world. We like to find the right solutions together with passionate entrepreneurs, who encourage us to develop further.
The Bosman Van Zaal team consists of more than 230 colleagues from different disciplines and areas of expertise. From expert mechanical engineers to secure software engineers and from experienced welders to driven service technicians. All under one roof.
Our history begins in 1921 with the establishment of Bosman Kassenbouw in Aalsmeer, where robust glasshouse constructions made of wood, steel and aluminium are developed. In 1968, Frans van Zaal started producing heating and cultivation systems in a small barn around the corner.
Our success gives us the opportunity to provide one of the most important growers in America with growing systems based on roller tables. This offers an opportunity to expand worldwide.
After a merger in 1988, we expand our expertise with water and electricity. Because of our growing ambitions, Green Innovators B.V. is founded in 2006 in order to build a professional company structure. Green Innovators acts as shareholder of a diverse group of companies. Crea-Tech is added in 2008.
And in 2014, after years of close cooperation, Bosman International and Montera Techniek are acquired. The trade name Bosman Van Zaal is a fact.
Bosman Van Zaal is part of the Green Innovators Group, which contains various companies are active in and on the fringes of the horticultural sector.
Turnkey horticultural projects
At Bosman Van Zaal, we have an advisory role in the field of sustainability and energy towards our clients. Sustainability was also an important requirement in the realisation of our new head office, which we moved into in December 2018. Over the years various steps have been taken, such as joining MVO Platform Aalsmeer, graduation research into packaging materials, certification, drawing up guidelines and codes of conduct such as those relating to human rights, focus on safety for our employees and more.
Since the beginning of 2019, we wish to make structured progress in the field of sustainability and entrepreneurship with an eye for the environment, people and prosperity (sustainable profit). We do this by writing out plans and strategy, taking steps and inspiring the sustainable awareness of our employees, partners and customers. In order to fulfil our mission to feed the world in a smart, efficient and valuable way and to make it more beautiful.
