Piet van der Klugt passed away on Friday May 8, 2020 at 93 years old. What started in 1953 as Plant Nursery A.J. van der Klugt & Zn., has now grown into a propagation company for vegetable plants and floriculture, Hollandplant in Bergschenhoek (Netherlands). He was knighted in the Order of Orange-Nassau.
"Also after his retirement Piet remained very involved in the development and progress of the company. He regularly came by for a tour of the grounds and a chat.
"We admire him for his entrepreneurship, courage, optimism and his invariably personal contact with everyone. We are grateful to 'father' Piet for what he has meant for the nursery and employees.
“His family could always rely on Piet. The loss will therefore be great for them. We wish his wife, children and grandchildren a lot of strength with this loss", states the company.
