Lisianthus in style

Entrepeneurs

Adriana and Alwin Pippel are the enthusiastic entrepreneurs behind the company Lisianthus in Style. After several years of being active in growing summer flowers and disbudded chrysanthemums, they have now started a modern new company of 30,000 m2 in Zuilichem. Here, the highest quality Lisianthus are produced all year round with the most modern production means and a sophisticated cultivation plan. With this they focus on the specialist trade in the European market. Together with salesman Leon Kuijt, they would like to establish a good relationship with their customers!

Lisianthus in style

History

“Ambitious”, that's how the entrepreneurs of L.I.S. can be described in one word. Owner Alwin Pippel has had this ambition from an early age. In 2006 he started his own company in the cultivation of disbudded chrysanthemums. What started with a piece of land of 1 hectare, was quickly expanded to 5 hectares, and in 2011 it was time for the first greenhouse. The four hectares of glass in Zaltbommel provided space for the seasonal products: Pansies, Campanulas, Ranunculus, Chrysanthemums and Brassica. But also outside expansion took place with 2 hectares in disbudded chrysanthemums.

A second greenhouse was added in Gameren in 2013 and Adriana Pippel joined the company as an entrepreneur. With a total area of 6 hectares under glass, the point was reached to divest the outdoor locations. The third greenhouse is now a fact. From November 2014, the new location in Zuilichem, where Lisianthus is produced, has been purchased.
L.I.S. Born.
