Intergreen was founded on 23 September 1996 as result of a merger between the companies Sionsplant and Superflora and was a part of the Van Duijn Group already. In 1997 a turnover of more than fl 100 million (over €45 million) was reached, making Intergreen one of the largest exporters in the Netherlands.
Ever since its foundation, Intergreen has focused on an efficient process in the supply chain. This focus made Intergreen decide to start up it’s own production facilities in The United Kingdom in 1999. In this same year Dutch Flower Group was formed by the merger of OZ Group (1959) and Van Duijn Group (1969).
In 2001 Intergreen head office in Honselersdijk moves to the ‘Trade Parc Westland’. Next to this, a second production location in The United Kingdom was taken into operation.
