On Saturday 19 March, Amaryllis specialist and flower bulb exporter Kébol in Rijsenhout will be opening the doors of its new building to interested business relations, colleagues in its field of operations and residents of the surrounding area. Visitors are invited to take a peek inside the 11,000 m2 building largely constructed by Thermoflor. The unique feature of this building is its sustainable properties.

Kébol has experienced an unprecedented growth in the past few years. The company’s former location in Noordwijkerhout was too small, which was restricting the further expansion of its activities. Kébol went in search of a suitable new location in collaboration with the Municipality of Haarlemmermeer and SGN (the Dutch Foundation for Greenhouse Horticulture). The company ultimately chose a plot of land that was part of the PrimA4a Project in Rijsenhout. Centrally located on the A4 motorway and near Amsterdam Schiphol Airport, this project is being developed especially for greenhouse horticulture.

The first foundation pile was driven ceremoniously into the ground in February 2015. A huge team of specialists and construction companies have been working on the production hall for the past several months. Thanks to an ultra-strict planning strategy and the good cooperation between the various parties involved, Kébol was able to relocate all of its activities to the new building in December 2015. The building has been constructed with the most modern materials available, including sustainable roofing, an energy-efficient cooling system and solar panels.

Thermoflor is well-known for its garden centre construction projects, but also handles construction projects for the green industry. The company is specialised in multifunctional buildings and offers solutions promoting the flexible use of space and energy savings. Thermoflor’s vast experience in this field was a decisive element that prompted Kébol to engage this company for the construction of its new premises.

Visitors are welcome to have a look inside the new building from 10 am to 4 pm. Please send us a message via the Kébol website to let us know that you will be coming. The visiting address is Rijshornstraat 209, 1435 HH Rijsenhout.
