In September 2001, Fons van Wezel started the trading company SAP Holland B.V. with Irish investors from the SAP Group. Initially, the idea was to provide the entire group, the largest landscaper in Ireland, a tree nursery in Tipperary and 2 garden centers. Due to the huge demand in Ireland, we have grown rapidly in the initial period. Over the years we have become active in many other European countries and have developed into an online wholesaler with an innovative strategy.
After 17 years of cooperation, the shareholders, who have both passed 70, want to withdraw from the company in the Netherlands. Fons van Wezel started looking for a new strategic investor. Together with the new investor, the company will continue to grow and take new steps in e-commerce with webshop fulfillment, a sales support network and logistics services.
As SAP remains active as a producer in Ireland, a name change will occur to avoid confusion. As of January 1 2019, our new name is Plant Market B.V.
