The management team consists of chief financial officer Marcel Hendriks, chief executive officer and owner Jack Aartsen and chief operating officer Frank van der Velden.
We are extremely proud of the story you have before you. It all began over 100 years ago in Breda. These days, Aartsen has become a truly international company with branches and partners in every corner of the globe. Aartsen is a real family business, with the fourth generation currently at its helm.Our history
Aartsen has 3 branches in the Benelux, 2 of which are in the Netherlands (Breda and Venlo) and 1 in Belgium (St. Katelijne-Waver).Our approach
The head office is housed in a monumental farm with a modern sales pavilion. Aartsen Breda now also has a fully air-conditioned warehouse measuring over 15,000 m², together with banana-ripening facilities.
The branch in Venlo is our main gateway to the eastern and southern regions of the Netherlands and the German Ruhrgebied. Aartsen Venlo now has a fully air-conditioned warehouse measuring 10.000 m², including a wholesale facility.
Our branch in St. Katelijne-Waver is very strategically located, next to Europe's largest auction house in the heart of Belgium and the Benelux. This gives Aartsen a wholesale facility and 5,000 m² of air-conditioned warehouse space to serve its clients in this region.
We serve the Asian continent from our branch in Hong Kong, which employs local people.Our approach
