Thermoflor Construct History

History

History and future within a single company

Thermoflor already has a long history. That goes back to the year 1877, as G. Grimbergen Sr. opened a smithy in Poeldijk - in the Westland.

Around 1900 Grimbergen may call itself the first 'greenhouse builder' of the Westland: the company was building the first greenhouses for the growing grape cultivation in the region. These greenhouses slowly but surely developed into greenhouses around 1925, with several connected hoods. An impression of the first greenhouses can be seen in this film by the regional broadcaster WOS.

Meanwhile, a lot has changed at the company: from simple greenhouses to complex turnkey projects.

In 2018 the company was taken over by the KSPL holding company, the parent company of, among others, the companies and brands Deforche Construct and Forzon.
