PRESS RELEASE – Hardinxveld-Giessendam – 19 December 2022

We are pleased to inform you of the acquisition of Timmerfabriek H.J. de Vries en Zonen, based in Andijk, by Bode Packaging, part of the Palletcentrale Groep BV.

H.J. de Vries en Zonen specialises in wooden packaging in the broadest sense of the word.

Bode Packaging is an industrial packager with over 30 years of experience. They have a hugely comprehensive range of services. Standard packaging, on-site packaging, customised packaging, XL packaging, transport cases, lashing & securing, exhibition cases, boxes, transport saddles and transport cases. All products are packed quickly and professionally to prevent transport damage. All packaging meets international quality requirements.

The activities and operations of H.J. de Vries en Zonen will continue from its current location in Andijk.

The Palletcentrale Group is a market leader in buying and selling used pallets, manufacturing new pallets and managing pallet stocks. The company sells more than 6 million pallets a year from its existing branches in Rotterdam, Helmond, Middenmeer, Sas van Gent, Hardinxveld-Giessendam and Moerdijk.

“We also continue our steady growth in industrial packaging. We do this through organic growth and acquisitions. For Bode Packaging, the acquisition of H.J. de Vries en Zonen is a great expansion. It offers the right synergy to further expand our activities in the northern Netherlands.”

Besides the familiar existing package of used pallets, new pallets, surplus pallet buyback and pallet stock management, our customers can also come to us for industrial packaging.

The acquisition of H.J. de Vries en Zonen in Andijk adds another dimension to the one-stop shop we want to be.
