Hele presentatie bekijken

Al sinds de oprichting (meer dan 110 jaar geleden) houden we ons bezig met onderzoek en ontwikkeling van specialistische toepassingen van plantaardige oliën en vetten. Onder het motto ‘Let’s create together’ brengen wij regelmatig innovatieve producten op de wereldmarkt. We werken nauw samen met onze klanten, maar evengoed met onze eigen medewerkers om te groeien en kwalitatief hoogstaande producten af te leveren.

Palmolie komt per schip in bulk aan in onze fabriek in Rotterdam. Daar vindt de eerste schifting plaats. De olie wordt geraffineerd en gefractioneerd. Met kleine tankschepen komt een deel naar de fabriek in Wormerveer voor verdere verwerking, een ander deel gaat per tankauto naar afnemers in Europa. Het eindproduct moet reuk-, kleur- en smaakloos worden en voldoen aan de specificaties van de klant.

In de regio Zaanstreek zijn we een belangrijke werkgever met een zeer goede naam. Dat zie je aan de lange dienstverbanden. Onder onze medewerkers heerst een sterke mate van loyaliteit en verbondenheid. We kennen een informele, directe cultuur, waar niet alles precies in detail geregeld is. We kijken dus goed of onze medewerkers zelfredzaam zijn en van een beetje pionieren houden. Als zij net zo in elkaar steken als wij, gedijen ze hier goed.
