On 5 July 2017, Royal Lemkes published its annual report for 2016, which provides a detailed overview of our company results.

Michiel de Haan, managing director of Royal Lemkes: “With due pride, we present our first official annual report. 2016 was a wonderful year for Royal Lemkes. All the more, because making a difference for our customers, suppliers and employees involves more than just financial results. Together with these stakeholders, we have made excellent strides in our transformation process. We are very pleased with our more targeted positioning, which gives us new direction and energy. Let’s plantify® the future. Together.”

In 2016, Royal Lemkes more than ever steered the course of a green connector, adding value for people and society. We believe in the power of plants. Plants do not only improve people’s lives and our customer’s businesses, but they also play a vital role in making the world a greener place. This is something that is desperately needed given the various environmental issues we face and the universal trend of increasing urbanisation.

Company turnover grew by almost 30 million euros in 2016. The theme for the year was: ‘From a strong foundation to excellent performance’. We always strive to provide excellent service, which is the bedrock of our company, and have experienced strong growth with virtually every customer in the 28 countries we supply to. This excellent result allows us to further invest in professionalising the organisation as well as in our customers, suppliers, employees and wider society.

Our annual report looks back on an eventful year in which we further strengthened the foundation for a fantastic future. A future that will be shaped by our leading customer base, a vibrant organisation and a strong dose of craftsmanship.
