Ron van der Helm and Barry de Bruin took the helm of the Force Group as of 1 January 2022. As of this date, they took over Force Greenhouse Demolition BV and Force Renovatiesloop BV from Jan Olsthoorn jr. According to the company, a long and thorough preparation process preceded this step.
The mix of executive and operational leadership over the past seven years, combined with the energetic efforts of the Force team, has allowed the company to grow into one of the key players in the greenhouse demolition and property redevelopment market. As a result, Jan is confident that Ron and Barry's management and takeover will go down well with customers.
Jan Olsthoorn jr. will devote himself full time to the further development of his real estate activities.

Step into Europe
The new owners of Force Group say that partner Ron has been active in greenhouse demolition in an operational role for 25 years. This is where Ron's strengths lie: putting smarter demolition into practice. Partner Barry's 'roots' are also in the Westland region, and he is strong in the internal running of the company. The growth of the Force Group over the past seven years is clearly a result of the team's strength and entrepreneurship, they say.
In recent years, this Force team has been working hard on the successful expansion of the companies Force Greenhouse Demolition BV and Force Renovatiesloop BV. Not entirely without results. "There are two wonderful companies that provide a wide range of services for customers who are active in greenhouse horticulture and in the redevelopment of real estate," says Jan Olsthoorn jr.
"The customer's needs remain a priority, the job is delivered on time, and we remain actively engaged in circular values. All of this ensures that the Force Team has a suitable solution for every challenge or assignment," says Barry de Bruin. "And good results are delivered," adds Ron van der Helm.
The French branch of Force Group will also officially open in mid-2022. After a long and thorough preparation, the opening of the French branch is now in sight. 'Force Group France' is the first step into Europe for the group. The entrepreneurs are ambitious and certainly expect this not to be their last.
