ErfGoed grew out of the contracting business started in 1958 by Hans de Jong, Alex`s father. At that time, most of the work undertaken consisted of manually digging ground for nurseries and growers. Over the years, machines have gradually taken over most of the hard labour. Hugo Paans joined the business in 1986 as a trainee tractor driver. In 1992, he and Hans de Jong`s son Alex took over the business from its founder, and renamed it De Jong and Paans. The name was changed again in 1997, to the present ErfGoed. In recent years, ErfGoed has expanded rapidly, having established itself as the leading player on the cultivation floor market.
We develop our cultivation floors based on our mission which is to keep taking horticulture and arboriculture to the next level. By creating the most ideal growing conditions, we minimise your crop’s susceptibility to diseases. What grows on your ErfGoed Floor is a strong, healthy, uniform crop. This makes the use of crop protection agents more of an exception than the rule. And that reduces costs for significantly higher profitability!
