Netherlands: Legro once again expands its workforce

Legro hasgreat confidence in its products. The company believes that an excellentsubstrate will help its customers to make the most of their crops. Legro alsohas great confidence in its staff and believes that only expert employees areable to offer growers substrates of excellent quality. And that confidence isevidently justified, because Legro is constantly growing. The need for goodsubstrates is also constantly growing. And that’s why Legro is once againwelcoming a new colleague.


Joep van den Boer, Sales Trainee

Joepstarted working as a trainee a year ago. As a student of Sports, Economics andCommunication he was required to dive into theorganisation and take a helicopter view of how Legro is managed. So he’s notentirely a newcomer. He’s familiar with the organisation and is now, as Legro’slatest new employee, rolling his sleeves up to help Legro realise its(commercial) aims. Straight out of school and eager to introduce Legro to abroader public. We believe that consumers also benefit from good pottingcompost. Joep is therefore joining our consumer team and is going to make moreconsumers happy with Legro potting compost!
