KUBO has been in existence for 75 years. A fine opportunity to look back to when it was founded. And to take in what’s happened since then. When you do that, you’ll see a period full of milestones, developments, innovations and achievements. Let’s go back with us.
75 jaar KUBO
Kuiper & Boers (KUBO) was founded by Arie Kuiper and Rien Boers at 13 Choorstraat in Monster, a workshop wedged between two houses.
At the Westland Trade Exhibition Kuiper & Boers was present with their first trade fair stand.
A customer for three generations
In 1963 we built the first KUBO greenhouse for Piet de Jong. At that time, the greenhouse was already being built for the cultivation radishes. Peter de Jong, one of the sons of Piet, followed with the cultivation of radishes under the name Jongfresh. In the 90's we built a view VenloGreenhouses for Jongfresh. For his brother John de Jong, we built a greenhouse for growing tomatoes for his company De Jong-Franke Tomaten in 2018. Growing does not stop after these two generations. In 2020, we will building a greenhouse for the third generation, Erik de Jong, for its company Jongfresh.
Kuiper & Boers invented the aluminium Venlo deck, that sets the tone to this day.
KUBO was awarded with a honorary medal by Queen Beatrix.
