From a backyard shed to full service provider!
How many companies can say they are in business for well over 70 years? On the 16th of November 1945 dry cleaner’s Hartevelt was created in a shed behind the home of grandpa and grandma Hartevelt in Zeist, which has now grown to become a full service providing firm that handles the distribution from De Meern to anywhere in Europe. One thing that hasn’t changed, however, is that we are still a family-run business! Grandpa Hartevelt passed away at a young age, leaving the business in the hands of his son, Hans Hartevelt and his mother. Hélène Hartevelt was the third generation to take over the business from her father. This story paints a picture that we are a family business, and we intend to keep it that way. Especially now that the fourth generation has just entered the management level.
Over the years, the dry-cleaning business has started to specialize in business-to-business activities in addition to servicing private customers. At the moment we are servicing several large organizations in the Netherlands such as Jaarbeurs Utrecht, Beatrix Theater, Rabobank, Nespresso Nederland, Hokatex, and the KNVB (the Dutch national football association).
Originating from the dry-cleaning business, a new business has been set up that focuses on getting goods store-ready. This business provides the service of getting clothes ready in a state to be presented in a shop for wholesalers, import firms, and purchasing firms. We have further specialized as a workshop, logistics, and warehouse partner.
