Vital link in the GreenV group portfolio
Over the years, Voshol has become a household name in the field of climate control for growers who want to expand, modernize, or redesign their greenhouses, for example if they want to switch to other crops. In addition, the company is at the forefront of applying innovative and sustainable solutions aimed at saving energy, the transition from fossil fuels to sustainably generated energy, and CO2 dosing or CO2 reduction.
GreenV CEO Jan Derck van Karnebeek calls Voshol a jewel in the world of international horticulture: “Voshol and its solutions are truly leading in the European and North American markets. The company is the reference in its field, and therefore fits perfectly in our growth plan, which we are executing step by step by adding highly qualified new companies to our group. In particular, Voshol helps us strengthen our presence in North America, which is an important end market for our group, while also contributing their essential knowledge and expertise to our full-service proposition.”
Jan Voshol commented in a statement: “We will continue to serve our customers in the Netherlands and Canada in the same way as before, but as a part of GreenV, we will have even more to offer. By joining GreenV, we have secured the long-term continuity of Voshol Warmte- en Elektrotechniek and JV Energy Solutions, to the delight of Lennert, Wilco, Henry and myself. The group has a pronounced long-term vision and ambitions that we would never be able to realize by ourselves. The market is rapidly consolidating, and we ourselves felt ready to take this step. Our contribution to GreenV will certainly complement the competencies of the other companies in the group, enabling them to design, deliver, and install increasingly complex climate control systems. Given the developments in the energy market, among other things, the durability and sustainability of these systems are becoming an increasingly important factor. And while Voshol Warmte- en Elektrotechniek and JV Energy Solutions have been able to deliver large projects independently before, working together as a group will allow us to significantly increase our commercial footprint in the Canadian and American markets. We particularly look forward to collaborating with Prins USA and connecting the existing networks of Prins Group, Stolze, and Verboom.”
After several successive acquisitions, the GreenV group currently encompasses Prins Group (greenhouse construction; 2020), Stolze (installation engineering; 2020), HT Verboom (internal transport systems; 2022), GreenV Indoor (indoor farming; 2022), Prins USA (greenhouse construction; 2023), Voshol Warmte- en Elektrotechniek (2023) and JV Energy Solutions (2023).
