PACOMBI HORTI was created in 2017 by the merging of the successful Van der Gugten Verpakkingen company and the horticultural arm of the PACOMBI GROUP, which already included Olsthoorn Verpakkingen. With the addition of this strong, new player in the auction segment the horticulture sector benefits from a total packaging expert for the import and export of cut flowers and plants. From efficient handling and protection during transportation to quality preservation and an eye-catching shop presentation, PACOMBI HORTI offers a complete range of ornamental horticulture packaging from grower to consumer.
Family business Olsthoorn Verpakkingen has been supplying ornamental horticulture packaging to growers, exporters and importers, packaging companies and the wholesale sector since 1968. The Company also develops innovative packaging concepts for the Horti sector. Olsthoorn Verpakkingen has been part of the PACOMBI GROUP since 2008.
The history of Van der Gugten Verpakkingen goes back to 1916 when Martinus van der Gugten opened a canteen at the Flora flower auction in Rijnsburg. It wasn’t long before his ‘menu’ also included packaging and logistics solutions for the ornamental horticulture sector. Four generations and exactly 100 years later Van der Gugten Verpakkingen became part of PACOMBI HORTI.
