About us


Bosman Van Zaal designs and develops complete horticultural projects and systems for the production of food, ornamental plants, starting materials and pharmaceutical crops. For around 100 years.

The knowledge and experience 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 population is growing enormously and requires solutions. Solutions that we can offer. To this end, we employ more than 60 engineers who continuously anticipate the latest developments in horticultural technology and make use of 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 driven entrepreneurs, who encourage us to develop further.


The team of Bosman Van Zaal consists of more than 230 colleagues with various 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.

We have grown enormously in recent years, but have managed to retain the approachability and open atmosphere of a small family business. A pleasant and responsible working environment for our employees is important to us, both in the office and in our own factory. We encourage a healthy balance between work and private life. To get to know your colleagues outside work too, various activities are organised, such as an evening of bowling and a barbecue in the summer.


Our history begins in 1921 with the founding of Bosman Kassenbouw in Aalsmeer, where robust greenhouse constructions of wood, steel and aluminium are developed. In 1968, Frans van Zaal starts a heating installation company in a shed one village away. A close partnership developed.

Its success leads to us being able to supply roller tables to a major player in the United States. This provides an opening for global expansion.

In 1988, a local water and electrical engineering installation company is acquired and in 2008 and 2014 Crea-Tech International and Montera Techniek join the partnership of companies.

In 2014, the Bosman and Van Zaal entities come together under one owner and the name Bosman Van Zaal is launched. Bosman Van Zaal is still a family-owned and family-managed business.

Bosman Van Zaal strives for quality, health, safety and sustainability for its customers, employees and the environment.

Our approach in design, engineering, production and installation is optimised to guarantee the highest quality of our systems and to ensure the safety of our customers and our employees. This approach is carried out according to registered work processes and procedures that are continuously monitored on the production floor and at the construction sites. Compliance with these procedures and processes is checked annually by external and independent audit agencies.

We share our customers' sustainability ambitions and CSR is also central to our organisation. We have taken various steps over the years. For example, our head office runs completely on PV panels and the heat and cold demand is met by underground heat/cold storage and heat pumps.
