History

The original Witte van Moort, later the founder of the family business, was born on 24 September 1910 in the village of St. Annaland in the Dutch province of Zeeland. His exceptional entrepreneurial talent was already apparent when he was still a young boy. Before he was even ten years old, Witte started up his first little business in his granddad’s shed. Aged eighteen, he left Zeeland and found his first job as a car mechanic at the other side of the country, in the region Twente. In 1937, Witte married his childhood sweetheart Frida and a couple of years later his son Adriaan was born, on 24 May 1939.

Environment & Society

As a family business, we at Witte van Moort consider it essential to take good care of our nearest and dearest, and of future generations. With that in mind, we attach a great deal of importance to having a responsible and sustainable environmental policy. The foundation of that policy is the Witte van Moort environmental care system, which has been certified and thus complies with the ISO 14001 standard. This approach has been developed in close consultation with the various authorities and with a customised environmental permit.
