Nieuwkoop then, now and in the future
Our history
1957
Invention of the "Carnation Mender" and the Foundation of Nieuwkoop
A common problem with carnations was that the calyx cracked, which greatly reduced the value of the flower. This was repaired with a small iron ring, but this was not very attractive. The “Carnation Mender” was some kind of flower tape that had the same external features as the calyx. This added more to the beauty of the carnation than the iron ring and improved the selling price. The invention of this product by Mr. Nieuwkoop marked the beginning of our passion!
1962
Invention of the Nieuwkoop plant support roll; ‘Nie-co-rol’
In cooperation with professional rose and orchid growers, the original support rol for flowers and plants was invented. The further developed version of the Nie-co-rol is still being made today!
1965
Introduction of the first measuring instruments and other plastic binding articles
In the sixties, the first portable meters for EC and pH were imported from Japan. We developed our own Tensiometers to measure soil moisture. Plastic binding articles like plant rings, anthurium clamps and stem clips were also introduced.
1981
Nieuwkoop grows and develops its own measuring instruments
Since 1980, we have been developing and producing our own brand of Nieuwkoop measuring instruments for various parameters. The focus is on a qualitative product and this increases the brand awareness. All over the world, professional growers know they can rely on Nieuwkoop.
1992
We move to the Zwarteweg in Aalsmeer and the next generation enters the family business
Nieuwkoop moved to Zwarteweg in Aalsmeer where the family business was continued. The operational management was transferred to the next generation and we continue to develop solutions for professionals in the agriculture and horticulture.
2005
Expansion Nieuwkoop at new location
Our head office was built on the Aalsmeerderweg and in 2005 we moved here. We are still located here and from here we serve many professionals in the agriculture and horticulture sectors worldwide.
2020
The third generation enters the company and we present our new corporate identity
The next generation enters Nieuwkoop and this starts a change in logo and corporate identity. The outward appearance changes, but the inward appearance, where service and quality is the most important, remains the same. Nieuwkoop is ready for the future!

Our quality marks

We offer various types of measuring instruments and plastic binding products. The range varies in degrees and therefore you will always find a suitable product with us. To help you make the right choice, we have developed a quality mark. It is for example possible that a certain product does not meet your requirements or is even overqualified for your application. This quality mark helps with the decision making. You can see where this product stands in comparison to other products. Some of the selection factors on which the quality mark is based are as follows: – Accuracy of measurement – Lifespan – Usability – Ease of maintenance – Overall quality The gradations that result from this are translated into our quality marks. We start with the “Standard” quality mark and the “Professional” quality mark concerns the top of the market.
