Heboplant B.V. is a company specialised in the import of tropical plants, which are acclimatised in the nursery garden. The company was founded in 1992 by Henk Boekestijn, hence the name Heboplant. The building included approx. 7,000 m2 at the time, 2 docks and was located at the Burgerdijkseweg in De Lier. Piet Doorduin took over the business in 2006 and a larger company building was bought in Maasdijk at the Oranjepolderweg 51. The company employs a small close-knit team and is supplemented with temporary workers in the high season.
Tropical plans are imported out of various countries for many years now including: Spain, Italy, Costa Rica, Honduras, Mexico and Taiwan. We make a good selection when it comes to growers and products to be able to meet the demand in the Netherlands and its surrounding areas. The plants find their way to the consumer through exporters, wholesalers and garden centres.
