Jac. Uittenbogaard & Zonen BV (JUB Holland) is a traditional family business with a modern touch. Nurserymen since 1910, today the business is still growing and exporting quality flower bulbs to more than 30 countries.
Jub Holland’s mission is to offer flower bulb products in the higher end of the market in Europe through innovative concepts, high-quality products and tailor-made programmes. These products are partly supplied by its own nursery, where the bulbs are grown in sustainable methods. Together with its dedicated staff JUB Holland ensures a high level of service towards its customers and continues to contribute to a colourful environment.
As a family business, JUB Holland strives to be a reliable partner for its customers and employees. The goal is to build long-term relationships that create value for both parties. By continuously responding and anticipating to the changing environment and wishes of the customer, the company remains an attractive partner, so that the continuity of JUB remains guaranteed and it can transfer a thriving business to future generations.
JUB consciously chooses to be active in all four facets of the flower bulb trade, from breeding, growing and flower production to the marketing of bulbs.
Due to the specific product- and professional knowledge that has (and will be) gained in its own nursery and forcing activities, JUB is able to use that knowledge for its trading activities. This allows JUB to remain distinctive compared to its competitors at all times and JUB is always aware of relevant developments in the flower bulb market. Through participation with breeding company Remarkable, JUB also has access to the most exclusive tulip varieties.
The customer groups that JUB focuses on are mainly in the higher end of the market, because precisely these customer groups expect quality, expert advice, tailor-made products and service. Because the trading activities of JUB comprise three different branches, JUB is a flexible partner that is able to offer a total package to customers, which is particularly important for importers.
The company started in Oegstgeest near Leiden in March 1910, combining keeping cattle with the production of vegetables and bulbs. Over the years the cattle and vegetables disappeared and the bulb growing expanded. In addition to growing them, the company also began to export bulbs around Europe, and eventually started producing cut flowers. In the 70s the company moved from Oegstgeest to Noordwijkerhout, the heart of the bulb industry, and expanded steadily.
In 2007 the business moved to its purpose built modern premises, surrounded by its own bulb fields. One of the highlights of the company history was the centenary in 2010, when it were appointed as Holder of the Royal Warrant – a sign of quality that’s recognised worldwide.
