The organisational structure
Royal Reesink, with its Head office in Apeldoorn, is mainly active in the Netherlands, Belgium, Canada, Germany, the United Kingdom, Kazakhstan, Denmark, South Africa and Turkey and has around 2,500 employees. The company achieved an annual revenue of € 916 million in 2020 by following a continuous active growth strategy (organic and M&A). Royal Reesink is divided into four industry segments each serving their own market.
Royal Reesink believes that scale and the use of specialist (digital) knowledge are important requirements for a distributor to be able to optimally serve customers and add value for all stakeholders. The company accordingly has strong ambitions for international growth. The long-term oriented strategy is focused on achieving growth, both organic and through acquisitions, and on focusing even more on giving customers peace of mind.
The next phase in the company’s journey is also influenced by increasing demand for consumer needs that lead to larger demand for food, water and energy. This poses huge economic, ecological and social challenges for our world. Sustainability has long ago passed the point of being simply an issue of caring for the environment. It is a serious matter in which the survival of humanity and our living and working environment is at stake. The need for sustainable innovation is becoming increasingly urgent.
These challenges are directly reflected in the activities of Royal Reesink. The demand for cleaner, smarter and more efficient equipment and processes will inevitably continue to increase in agriculture, landscape maintenance, logistics and civil engineering. By offering sustainable and innovative solutions with respect for people and the environment, we can make a positive contribution to meeting the challenges that the world faces.
The long heritage of Royal Reesink is reflected within the strong and proud family like culture that has been built over the years. With a very decentralized structure, Royal Reesink has always been able to adapt and anticipate optimally on local needs and challenges.
With the strong ambition and entering the next growth phase of the company there is an increasing need for professionalization and digitalization. Creation and integration of robust processes and building solid and transparent controls and qualitative reporting and analysis are key aspects. As a result of this and in order to be able to add value to the ambitious goals, people need to be hands on, agile, creative and fully committed. High levels of accountability and performance are imperative in reaching the company’s objectives.
