Increasingly, the world demands smarter and more sustainable solutions for its plant production systems. As the world’s population grows to 9.7 billion (2050), innovative ideas are more necessary than ever before.
Your vision is to make a substantial contribution to a smarter and more sustainable sector. By developing innovative cultivation methods, by breeding new varieties with higher yields or less demands on environmental conditions, or by applying horticultural technologies to traditional extensive crops.
As a committed partner, we help the innovators to innovate. We create the solutions and systems needed to make our partners successful. We offer each project an inventive approach supported by the broadest range of in-house production and engineering disciplines.
Based on our horizon process, we leverage specific knowledge, expertise and state-of-the-art digitised design and manufacturing infrastructure to find the most effective and efficient solution to realise your vision. This could be a high-tech robotised phenotyping facility, a fully automated production greenhouse or a robust, film-covered greenhouse suitable for harsh climatic conditions. For food, ornamental plants and plants for the cosmetics and pharmaceutical industries.
As the need for agricultural and horticultural products grows, so does the need for innovation. That is what we do. We offer solutions for long-term growth. In this way we help to nourish and enhance the world in a smart, efficient and valuable manner.
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.

SUSTAINABILITY AND CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY (CSR) WITHIN BOSMAN VAN ZAAL
At Bosman Van Zaal we have an advisory role in the field of sustainability and energy for our customers. 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 CSR Netherlands, graduation research into packaging materials, certification, drawing up guidelines and codes of conduct relating to human rights, a focus on safety for our employees and more.
Since the beginning of 2019, following the move to our new, sustainable head office, we have been drawing up an annual sustainability report, which includes our CSR policy and sustainability plan. In this way, we wish to make structured progress in the field of sustainability and entrepreneurship with an eye for the environment, people and prosperity (sustainable profit). To meet our mission to nourish and beautify the world in a smart, efficient and valuable way. In this annual document, we evaluate the previous year and set our agenda for next year. Our focus is on the three P’s: People, Planet, Prosperity. We adhere to the 17 Sustainable Development Goals, as well as the ISO 26000 and 37 CSR topics as guidelines.
