In 1979 Hendriks Bloemen opened a flower shop in a suburb of Maastricht, focused on the rapid sale of fresh flowers and plants. Due to the direct line with producers and auctions, with low cost patterns, could be worked at very competitive prices. If we were focused in the early years almost exclusively on the trade of raw flowers and plants, we now offer a much more comprehensive package, and that the sale of traditional bouquets (both classic and modern) an important activity. Also, plant regulations are becoming an important place in our stores. From 1986 (when we already have 5 branches and our central warehouse in Maastricht), we are also engaged in wholesale: by supplying fellow florists and supermarkets. Logistics and administrative activities, which are now fully merged with the processing and distribution process tbv own businesses. Already in the first years we were very active in the decoration: these products were gratefully for us a means to keep surprising our customers again and again. Our desire to take the best possible price to realize us in '96 led the manufacturers in Southeast Asia. The direct import in big hit, since our prices are also the level of most providers, which are below. Hendriks Bloemen Geleen BV and Hendriks Deco currently employs over 120 enthusiastic - mostly young - people, mostly working part-time.
