ABOUT LIMEX

Limex has more than 32 years of experience in cleaning reusable containers and packaging for the vegetable and plant sectors.

Limex doesn’t like to see valuable resources, energy and money being wasted. The products, such as fruit, vegetables, flowers and young plants, transported in crates or other containers can become infected by horticultural moulds, viruses or bacteria. This wastes resources such as substrate, nutrients, water, energy and labour. Good hygiene during production can limit these losses. Limex uses its knowledge and the added value of expertise to boost hygiene levels during production in the horticultural sector, reduce waste and extend the vase life or shelf life.

Limex does this by supplying high quality machines that wash crates, seed trays, buckets etc.

Respect for our planet

Limex takes its corporate social responsibility very seriously. We invest heavily in new and innovative washing methods designed to reduce resource use, water and energy consumption and the use of chemicals.

 

Water filtering technology and heat transfer play an import role in this process. Washers heated using residual heat from cooling units have been operated in practice for years. In addition, the machine components are 90% recyclable.

Strong local links

Limex is a true family-run company with strong local links. This commitment is expressed though our involvement in local initiatives such as Asperge Gilde Peel en Maas. This is a local branch organisation that offers a platform for knowledge sharing and cooperation in marketing asparagus. We also like to frequently cooperate with regional suppliers.

And respect for our people

Limex also invests in its human capital – our employees. We promote an intensive anti-smoking policy and encourage participation in sport. For example, an enthusiastic team of colleagues takes part every year in the local storm run, Venlo Stormt, under the motto “Limex is not afraid of dirt!”.

 

Today’s students are tomorrow’s staff. Limex works closely with educational institutes and offers internship placements. We always welcome students for an excursion to visit the company. Our colleagues at Limex are keen to share their passion for technology, engineering and horticulture with schoolchildren and students.

 

We give our employees plenty of opportunities for personal development by offering coaching and training in a variety of disciplines. The photo shows a training course at Limex on microbiology and hygiene, organised by Groen Agro Control.

ABOUT LIMEX

The first crate washer was manufactured and put into operation. These machines were put onto a trailer with a generator and transported from one vegetable auction to another in the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany. This was quickly followed by the development of other machines.

Limex relocates to Sevenumsedijk in Koningslust. The office and the workshop are now on one site. More employees join as the company shows strong growth. At the time, the scope of activities already covered a mix of sales, rentals of crate washers and service provision.

the service provision division of Limex has grown explosively in recent years. The company is restructured to form Limex Machine Exploitatie BV and LCS BV. Joep Janssen (son of founders Jan and Annie Janssen) takes on the role of director of Limex Machine Exploitatie BV. He is responsible for sales and rentals of the machines worldwide. Jan van Hoef becomes director of LCS BV and focusses on the service provision side of the business.

Limex Machine Exploitatie BV. was founded by Jan and Annie Janssen. The workshop was in Grashoek and the office in the attic at their home address. Jan Janssen developed, engineered and sold the crate washers on his own.

Limex relocates to new business premises on the industrial estate in Panningen.
