Bircan & Van der Wel wholesalers have relocated to a new, prominent site. It's in the Spaanse Polder wholesale market in Rotterdam. They'll be there for the next few years.

"This is a prime location for us," says Ramazan Akgun. "We have about 1,000 m2, including cooling cells. So, we now have access to a far more modern facility. We'll be here for at least the next three years. After that, we hope to move to the new Wholesale Market. Urban Industrial is currently redeveloping that."
According to Ramazan, Bircan & Van der Wel occupy a unique position in the market. "Many of our fellow traders here sell a lot to vendors through Cash & Carry. But our customers take mostly larger volumes. These go to Dutch and overseas wholesalers. We have clients in various countries. These include Germany, England, France, Belgium, and the Netherlands."
"We're strong in products like greenhouse vegetables. Tomatoes, bell peppers, pointed peppers, eggplants, and zucchini are true top sellers. We also have our own cultivation of mini cucumbers and Turkish eggplants and zucchini."
"Vacations have now started in the north of the Netherlands and Germany. So, we're usually quieter now. We're confident about the future. Every year we gain buyers, suppliers, and a wider product range. Our new premises are very helpful in that regard," concludes Ramazan.
