Bosman Van Zaal takes over CMW Horticulture

Bosman Van Zaal from Aalsmeer in the Netherlands, a renowned specialist in turnkey horticultural projects, will expand its activities in the United Kingdom through the acquisition of CMW Horticulture, based in East Yorkshire. The name CMW Horticulture will remain unchanged, the range of products and services will remain the same and the entire team will also remain with the company, so that service and maintenance of all greenhouses and greenhouse installations is guaranteed.

Continuity and further development

Thanks to the takeover, CMW will be even better able to respond to technical developments in the horticultural sector, as  it can make use of the extensive team of horticultural engineers in Aalsmeer, that works on the development of Venlo glasshouses, and polythene greenhouses and also focuses on logistical, cultivation, water, climate, electrical and control systems as well as data logging. In addition, over time, systems within the company will be aligned with the parent company, which will increase efficiency. Managing Director Ian Metcalfe sums it up as follows: “Bosman Van Zaal is a well-respected and very progressive company, with an excellent product portfolio that will allow us to better support growers in all sectors of the horticultural industry. We are very excited to work with them and look forward to a new chapter in our company’s history. I have no doubt that, with the support Bosman Van Zaal will provide, CMW will see continued growth and success in this vibrant industry in the UK and Ireland.”

Focus on local markets

The acquisition is in line with Bosman Van Zaal’s strategy, which is aimed at aligning its high-quality horticultural knowledge with the needs of local markets and sectors, enabling tailor-made projects to be carried out more efficiently. For that reason, local people and existing organizations are used, who have the right contacts in the area and a better insight into the local market demand.
