The area around Zwaag and Blokker has long been known for fruit-growing. For over 90 years, the Besseling family from this West-Frisian municipality has been working in this sector. From an early stage, the Besseling family was conscious of the importance of good storage technologies and built its first cold stores and cold storage facilities in the early 1950s. A logical consequence was our interest in Controlled Atmosphere storage, resulting in the construction of the first CO2 adsorber in 1965. High demand from growers for this equipment led in 1987 to the founding of Besseling Agri-Technic BV. In 2009 the name of the company was changed into Besseling Group BV.
Besseling Group has since grown to become a firm specializing in virtually every aspect of climate control. The company nowadays supplies a broad range of high-quality installations worldwide, focused on the needs of every client.
