It is no surprise that it was Sander van der Gugten who came up with the Cube. “When I was twelve, I started working in production at Van der Plas and picking orders. After completing my master’s in Supply Chain, I set to work to make the process as efficient as possible. My experience on the shop floor came in handy. I know better than anyone how important it is to complete an order and how fragile fresh flowers are!
A year and a half was spent working on the project. At the beginning of June 2019, the first sketches were put on paper and in March 2020, the time had finally come and building began. Sander: “An amazing moment! So cool that my idea was now actually being realised. After the building process was completed, we took ample time to improve the process. Since then, the Cube has been running at full capacity for several months.”
