Purmerend, 19 June 2018 - Jan Bijleveld has been appointed as the new Managing Director at packaging business Leo de Kock from Purmerend, a subsidiary of Agrico BV.
Mr. Bijleveld succeeds Claris ten Napel, who led the company for more than 24 years. Prior to this appointment, Jan Bijleveld had already been active as interim Managing Director for eighteen months at the packaging company, which celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2016. Mr Bijleveld has an extensive international background in logistics processes, purchasing and sales.
Leo de Kock plans to continue with the implementation of the innovative course that has been set in the past few years. We recently updated our machinery pool, enabling the company to significantly increase production. In order to be able to continue to accommodate these growing activities, Leo de Kock's premises will be expanded next year with a warehouse and new office space. Investments will also be made in a new ERP system.
Its unique collaboration with Agrico enables Leo De Kock to introduce new varieties with unique characteristics that meet modern consumer requirements.
