On 1 May 2020 Van der Windt Packaging and PACOMBI HORTI will continue under the name Paardekooper. This name change is part of Koninklijke Paardekooper Group’s new strategy to further reinforce the family business’s leading position in the field of sustainable and innovative packaging solutions. In addition to the new name, Van der Windt Packaging will also move to a new, sustainable building in Den Hoorn (Harnaschpolder) in mid-April.

Paardekooper embodies more than one hundred years of knowledge, experience and technological innovations in the field of packaging. “It goes without saying that we are proud of this and keen to show it,” explains Lyanne Paardekooper, CMO Koninklijke Paardekooper Group. “The new corporate structure and strategy will enable us to respond faster to the rapidly changing world of packaging. The demand for sustainable packaging solutions is growing and the importance of brand packaging is ever increasing. By combining our knowledge and expertise, we can provide the right answer to every packaging question. Integration also results in a broader product portfolio, for an even better and more complete service offering – now and in the future.”

New sustainable building

After more than fifty years, Van der Windt Verpakking is leaving Honselersdijk in mid-April to move into its new building in the Harnaschpolder (Meerkamp 5) in Den Hoorn. The new building has been constructed to be completely sustainable and features a logistics centre of over 27,000m2 with 24 docks. Combined with the strategic location along the A4 motorway, this represents considerable optimisation of the logistics processes. Ultimately, this also contributes to further optimisation of services.

A new WINDT

New, yet very familiar: The name ‘Windt’ will continue to be used as a product label for innovative packaging solutions for the industrial and agricultural sectors. WINDT stands for the best choice in the chain when it comes to food safety, shelf life, logistics and presentation. The WINDT range includes advanced flexible films, cardboard shakers and buckets and paper bags made from CartopaperĀ®.

The name change and the relocation go hand in hand with some administrative changes.
Customers and suppliers have been informed of the changes in order to make the transition as smooth as possible.
