Corporate social responsibility: something that comes naturally to VB . Our very genes dictate we look after the interests of others. Particularly when this concerns maintaining a healthy environment. With this so close to our heart, we have proven to be an innovative company when doing sustainable business, for example by making geothermics more widely available to the horticultural sector.
VB is founded in April 1966 and was named J & A Verbakel Verwarming. This heating company for the Dutch horticulture was started by two brothers, Joop and Aad Verbakel, in ‘De Lier’, The Netherlands. Not much later the activities were extended abroad, among others to Belgium, Germany and France.
On March 20th we made a start on the construction of our new office in Naaldwijk, which is just as the crow flies 500 meter from our present office. We didn't make this start by hitting the traditional 'first pile’, but by planting eight beautiful oaks on the entrance side of our plot.
