    VHC and Bolidt bring life to 

    Hendrik Ido Ambacht

Bolidt News


The Vereenigde Hollandsche Compagnie (VHC) is an international wholesaler serving restaurants, hotels, cafes and bulk customers. The company has literally everything for the hospitality industry, workplace restaurants and institutional caterers and in addition develops its own concepts in coffee, bread, pastry products and ice cream. In November 2017, VHC moved into new premises in the Noordeinde, Hendrik-Ido-Ambacht, developed by GETTGRIP. This property developer is also involved in the redevelopment of Waterbusplein, the square that also houses Bolidt’s Experience & Innovation Centre. Contacts were quickly established between VHC and Bolidt, and VHC’s CEO Arco Noorlander had various types of synthetic flooring installed in the new building. The beginning of a successful collaboration.

The installed Bolidtop® FiftyFifty has turned out to be a perfect choice: hygienic and yet warm in appearance. According to Noorlander, the synthetic flooring system has several advantages for the wholesaler. ‘We have many suppliers visiting our premises to show us their product range. Our kitchen sees a lot of cooking and baking with fresh ingredients and is used to prepare all sorts of dishes. The flooring, therefore, needs to be hygienic and easy to clean, particularly in our kitchen. The Bolidtop® FiftyFifty has the functional properties of industrial flooring, but its warm and homely feel is just as important to me. It is a truly bespoke design floor that perfectly suits our type of business. During the application we were able to decide on the pattern and thus determine how ‘busy’ the finish should be. The result is stunning.”

Great experience

 Overall, the project consisted of installing synthetic flooring in various spaces in VHC’s new premises: not only in the reception area and the adjacent kitchen, but also in a number of offices and meeting rooms. The support in selecting a flooring system, the offer, the confirmation of the order, the application process: Bolidt was, according to Noorlander, ‘very professional’ in every aspect. “Bolidt fully delivered on all its promises. Working with such a partner has been a great experience, because there was no need to check everything ten times. A real breath of fresh air compared to some other companies in the construction sector.”

As well as professional, Noorlander found Bolidt to be very flexible. “During the installation of the floor, the work came to a sudden halt due to a water pipe burst. Bolidt immediately offered ideas on how to best solve the problem.”

Plenty of life

Noorlander consciously chose the current location for his business: on the water and soon right next to Bolidt’s Experience & Innovation Centre. He is ‘very excited’ about the forthcoming development of the area. “You have the vibrancy of the water here and a perfect connection to Rotterdam and Dordrecht. The development of Waterbusplein will create a new gateway into Hendrik-Ido-Ambacht. With a variety of hospitality venues set to move into the area and Bolidt’s plans taking shape, there will be plenty of life. Once Waterbusplein is complete, it will be great fun for us to pick up customers and suppliers by boat. A visit to our company will then become an outing as well.”
