Tree planting ceremony kicks off construction for VB’s new HQ

Construction of a new home for greenhouse construction company VB began Wednesday March 20, 2019 with a tree planting ceremony during which children of the company’s employees planted eight large oak trees to mark the entrance of the new office.

“Trees represent growth and growth is the reason why we are expanding our business. Commenting on the symbolic planting of eight oak trees by VB staff and their children VB CEO Edward Verbakel said, “We all have a role to play in making a positive change for future generations.”

Over the next few months VB’s new offices and a purpose-built fabrication warehouse will gradually take shape.  Progress on construction can be tracked on the company’s newly launched website

Last month FCI sat down with VB’s Chief Executive Edward Verbakel to speak more about the company’s sustainability goals and future. Here is the full interview:
