We protect your and our health and safety

  • At our locations, our employees work apart as much as possible in time and distance.
  • At your location(s), our drivers conform to your measures.
  • External carriers have been able to access our warehouses again since October: view the Corona poster.
  • Access to our showrooms in Bleiswijk and Apeldoorn has been relaxed, so that regular visits are now possible again. Payments are contactless via the ATM.
  • External visits are possible at all our locations again. We receive you in specific areas where we guarantee hygiene and distance rules.

  • You can reach us through the contactdetails known to you and our general contact details.

In this way we can respond to this in time with our stocks and planning and guarantee continuity.
