Limex management changes from 1st to 2nd generation

Panningen, 10 January 2019

We would like to inform you about the latest developments at our company.

I,- Jan Janssen – started Limex 30 years ago. In the period following the company’s establishment it evolved into a leading, international supplier of washers for crates, trays and buckets for the agri-food sector. My wife and I have created a healthy and solid foundation that will facilitate further growth of the company. The time has now come to inject new energy into the company. I am happy and proud to announce that our son Joep has taken over the company. In this way, Limex will remain a family-owned and managed company. I am fully confident that this will guarantee the continuity of the company for the future.

Key values

In early 2018, Limex Cleaning Solutions (LCS B.V.) was established. Under the management of Jan van Hoef the focus of this division is on full-service concept provision. At that time, Joep was appointed as managing director of Limex Machine Exploitatie BV, the machine engineering division. Joep: “I have inherited the same key values, namely supplying reliable, high-quality machines and excellent levels of service, from my parents. I will continue to be inspired and motivated by these values.”

Under Joep’s management, Limex has raised its profile as the most professional supplier of washers for ornamental plant producers and the horticultural sector. “I see a host of opportunities for Limex in the horticultural and ornamental plant sectors in the future and will place even greater emphasis on this key area. We have gained a great deal of expertise in the sector in recent years and can add true value.”

What does this mean for you?

The high quality and service levels you are accustomed to will remain unchanged. In addition, we will continue to work on creating innovative solutions for cleaning crates, trays and buckets. The intended growth in the horticultural sector is also increasingly taking place beyond our national borders. Our many years of experience give Limex a huge advantage in this respect.

We hope to have informed you sufficiently and thank you for the confidence you have placed in our company until now. We look forward to continuing our cooperation in the future.

Yours sincerely

Limex Machine Exploitatie B.V.
Jan Janssen and Joep Janssen
