Our organisation

Jardin is the undisputed Number 1 Manufacturer of plastic garden furniture in Europe, with leading brands such as Allibert and Jardin. In Europe, the demand for affordable garden furniture with a luxurious finish is constantly increasing, which has meant considerable growth for Jardin.

Jardin has therefore become a much more professional organisation in recent years. Every day, more than 250 people work on their ambitions to improve production processes, technical maintenance, quality control, logistics, administration, marketing, sales and product development.

Jardin is part of the worldwide Keter-Group.  Keter is specialised in the production and sales of plastic consumer products. With a turnover of more than 1 billion euros, it’s securely placed at the top.

Despite the fact that we are part of a large group, we at Jardin, continue to work like real entrepreneurs. Entrepreneurship within the company is therefore very highly valued and there is lots of freedom to do things your own way. Jardin is an informal, but professional organisation. The development of different products is just as important as the development our employees.

History

On May 15th 1949, Mr. Pierre CURtius and Mr. Ad VERschuren opened up a factory at the address of Heuvel 33 in Tilburg, for the manfacturing of glass tube packaging for the cosmetic and pharmaceutical industry. In 1952, the company was relocated to Rijen. Mr. Verschuren (owner and director) entrusted his son (a true technician) with the task of buying a mould and an injection moulding machine.

Under the guidance of General Director, Verschuren Senior, the various departments for tubular furniture, glass and plastic were split up, each with its own company structure. The ‘Tubular Furniture Factory’ Verco, came under the leadership of son, Ad.

This daughter company produced the well-known folding chairs, tables and sunloungers of the time, from a light-metal tubular frame combined with fabric, their top seller being ironing boards. In this factory, only the most urgent of investments were ever made, which sadly led to the company being sold to Rewin in 1968.

Some years later, Rewin was taken over by Mr. Caspar Verschuren, who in the meantime had split with Curver and had started up a new plastic manufacturing company under the name of: Industrial Mouldings.

From this company, Jardin was born. Since 1993, Jardin has been part of The Keter Group. Under Keter, Jardin expanded to be the largest supplier of plastic garden furniture in Europe, with its market leading brands of Allibert and Jardin.
