We're kick starting a movement to awaken the world to more sustainable packaging
We, a close-knit family business, laid our roots a hundred years ago. We have always had an eye on the future. On the coming generation. On leaving them a better world. We aim to lead the European field in sustainable packaging. When our business grows, so too does our positive impact on the world. Leaving us to supply packaging products and services that do what they are supposed to, with the least possible impact on the planet and its inhabitants. Helping businesses proactively by making packaging demonstrably more sustainable: that’s our mission!
Front runner in sustainable packaging
We aim to hold a world-leading position in sustainable packaging solutions. We combine scientific know-how with a century of experience. For that reason, Paardekooper's customers have come to rely on honest, fair and comprehensive packaging advice. Whether primary or secondary packaging, and irrespective of the link in the chain, we offer the knowledge and expertise.
Packnowledgy, the blend that makes us unique
We combine our materials expertise with creativity, science, research and the latest technologies. For us, it's about offering the most appropriate, future-proof solution. Even if that means zero packaging. It's how we progress as an international player and front runner in knowledge and innovation. Yes, we supply solid packaging. And we always will. But we are so much more than that.
Respect for the world and each other
It is our mission to drive down packaging waste, and to develop better alternatives. To innovate. By focusing attention, offering more sustainable alternatives and committing wholeheartedly to concepts such as reduce, recycle and (ultimately) reuse. It goes without saying that we are concerned with the social aspect. Are you wondering how? Read about RESPECT, our sustainability strategy.
Our core values
Paardekooper is a real family business, and we stand for important family values. We love to trade fairly, and we put our hearts and souls into our work. We’re enterprisers; we won't shirk from a challenge; and we’re bursting with creative ideas. We like sustainability, and we like professionalism: whatever we do we do it well, with conviction and respect for the planet.
We do it together. We place a high value on collaborating with colleagues. We work with our partners and suppliers to develop new products, and we link parties into the chain, to deliver sustainable packaging solutions.
We are honest. We are sold on transparency, openness, reliability and integrity. We are straightforward, and we do business fairly and squarely with our customers and suppliers.
We are resourceful and creative, and we think in terms of solutions. With courage, vigour and sheer enterprise we’ll find a way to reach our goal, and we’ll even look beyond the beaten path.
We are experts. Much more than product vendors, and we deliver value through know-how and advice. For a hundred years our knowledge has been our key possession, and we cherish it.
