Foundation and development
In August 1998 the Maresme Planteles SL. was founded in Argentona Spain under the direction of Stephan Völkering. In the beginning the planting area contained 6,700 square meters with the production of young plants, half finished and finished plants for the local market.
Already in 1999 it became apparent that the production area was too small, so it was expanded in 2000 to 30,000 square meters.
In 2002, the Maresme Planteles, SL expanded her activities to the commerce and resale of finished plants, palm- and olive trees to other European countries.
Vilassar de Mar
From 2000 to 2007, production methods have been developed and optimized. Because of the growing order volume opened the Maresme Planteles, SL in January 2008, a second nursery in Vilassar de Mar on an area of 15,000 square meters where our distribution center, administration, and another modern production of young plants are situated.
