Introduction 

 

Koelhuis WFO b.v. started in December 2005 after buying the cold store facilities of The Greenery in Wervershoof. The auction complex was earlier known as vegetable and fruit auction West Friesland Oost, therefore the name Koelhuis WFO.

 

The cold store facilities are situated at business area WFO in Zwaagdijk-Oost (community Medemblik), centrally located in the West Frisian fruit growing area and in the middle of the largest growing areas for flower bulbs (West Friesland, Noordelijk Zandgebied, Flevo polder, Noord-Oost polder, Bollenstreek) and also some greenhouse complex areas (Alton Heehugowaard, Het Grootslag Wervershoof, Agri-Port Wieringerwerf, Heemskerk en Almere).

 

TECOF is a part of Koelhuis WFO, the activities of TECOF started in 1999 by renting ULO cold stores for lily bulbs and tulip bulbs. At that time these facilities where owned by The Greenery. After buying the cold store facilities in December 2005, all activities of TECOF where taken over 100% by Koelhuis WFO.

 

We work with a small team of 2 employees and 1 part timer on administration

Mr. Martin Gielink                    Cold store manager

Mr. Arjen de Vries                   Cold store employee

Ms. Miranda Kraakman         Administrator

 

During the entrance of the fruit harvest we are supported by some employees of our sister company Laan Flora Facilities. This also happens during the entrance of the bulbs destined for ULO storage.
