1978

THREE BROTHERS

Cor (25 years old), Wil (24 years old) and Jos de Jong (21 years old) started growing on a piece of land in their spare time. The 1.5 ha piece of grassland behind the land of father Cor de Jong was bought and drained by hand for cultivation. This piece of land could only be reached by boat.
 
Almost immediately with the start of cultivation, the first products were also traded. Import of floriculture products from Belgium. The products were loaded by the brothers themselves in the evening and transported to the Netherlands at night. Everything had to be unloaded before 7.30 am. After that, they all had to return to their regular jobs.

1982

GEBR. DE JONG

Gebr. The Jong Handelskwekerijen was officially started in 1982. From that moment on, the brothers were able to work full-time in their own company. Almost from the start, the selling of floricultural products to Scandinavia was also started. From this moment on, exports to England and Sweden also began. The company's first specialities were rock plants and rhododendron.
