History

    1963

    Vanco Belgium was founded by Roger Van Colenberghe & Rita Dhondt. In the beginning we worked with a warehouse without cold storage rooms. Also at the time, all products were moved by hand.

  • 1974-1977

    Vanco Belgium moved to a warehouse with 2 cold storage rooms in the industrial zone. At that time, the first forklift and the first refrigerator truck were bought. Also we invested in a packing machine for lettuce and sprouts. The calm winters were filled with flowers, plants and a private plantation of Christmas trees.

  • 1989

    In 1989 we have built a new warehouse. Since then the company started doing storage and cross dock activities. This new warehouse has a separate packing department, a cross docking zone with 11 docks and 9 cold storage rooms with high storage capacity.
