About the Frigo Group
Hein van Elderen, the founder of the Frigo Group, built his first cold store in Nieuw-Vennep in 1973. The location in ’s-Heerenberg opened in 1993, and the next one in Breda went into business in 2000. Today, these facilities can accommodate 100,000 pallets at temperatures ranging from +50 to -260 Celsius.
To provide our customers with additional services, Frigo Group Logistics, located in Abcoude, was launched in 2008. This independent service provider offers transport solutions used not only by customers who store their goods in the cold stores but also by other customers located in the Netherlands and abroad who require only our transport services. This gives us better control of the entire distribution chain and means that we can make our own arrangements to ensure that lorries get their goods to their destination on time.
The Frigo Group is a real family business that still places a high priority on personal contact. Each facility is owned by a member of the family who is actually involved in the daily affairs at that location. This horizontal form of organisation – with only one management tier – enables customers to have direct contact with the ‘decision-makers’. These are the people with insight into our operations and who know the specific requirements applying to the storage and shipment of your goods.
The Frigo Group pursues a policy of long-term customer relationships – and guarantees this by means of its personal contact and the added value it offers. Some of our customers have been making use of our services for 35 years. We are simply a permanent part of their supply chain. And most of our employees have been with us for a long time as well. This means that you are always in contact with the same employees, and no one has to explain anything to each other again.
