Our main office is located in the Dutch city of Helmond. Here, at our 12 hectare production facilities, we focus on producing substrates for professional growers who specialise in soft fruit, trees and young plants.
OUR MAIN OFFICE IN HELMOND, THE NETHERLANDS
ASTEN, THE NETHERLANDS
It was in the Dutch village of Asten, in the heart of the region known as De Peel, that Legro began in 1924. This is where our modern 3.5 hectare production location makes substrates for private-label products, roof gardens, consumer sales and landscaping. Five fully automated packaging lines package the finished products.
KATWIJK (NB), THE NETHERLANDS
Our high-quality casing soil for mushroom cultivation is produced in the village of Katwijk located in the the Dutch province North-Brabant. Here, on the River Maas, we are in a perfect location to have our raw materials delivered and our finished products shipped very efficiently by sea container to and from the ports of Rotterdam and Antwerp.
Our modern production location in Worpswede, a small town near the north German city of Bremen, is where we produce casing soil for the German market and for export. Having the large German seaports nearby is an important advantage.
THE BALTIC STATES
In addition to our peat fields in Estonia and Latvia, we also have production locations in these countries for blending our high-quality substrates. This makes it possible for us to deliver ready-to-use substrate straight from the source of its raw materials. We are really proud of our brand-new factory that was recently opened in Latvia.
Kalloveen, another company in the Legro family, is the largest importer of white peat in Europe and can thus guarantee the availability of peat for the other Legro companies. Kalloveen has its own peat bogs in Estonia and Latvia and also buys peat from the Baltic States, Sweden and Ireland. We have our own terminal in the port of Antwerp from where we deliver this peat to the various Legro companies and also sell it to third parties.
We have a sales office in Melbourne for our substrates and our Mushroom Casing Solutions. Phil Badgery has been our representative in Australia and New Zealand for many years.
USA AND MEXICO
We recently opened sales offices in the USA and Mexico, both of which are managed by Pablo Segovia. From these offices, he coordinates the sales and logistics activities with his American and Mexican teams.
Our team in India is managed by Nachiappan Alagumumurugappan. From the city of Coimbatore, he coordinates our coir production and logistics activities.
