WHO WE ARE
A Lifelong Journey
Westland Greenhouse Management was founded in 1998 by Jos de Groot, a tomato greenhouse owner who was looking for a new adventure and frontier as he emigrated from the Netherlands to Canada with his young family. Since then, Jos has grown cucumbers, peppers, tomatoes and worked in plant propagation. As an avid Formula One race fan, Jos always pushes towards new records by first setting the right framework, then fine tuning all the small details, just like a successful race car team. His ultra competitive nature, positive attitude and determination are what drives him day in and day out. We are constantly learning about the newest development in horticulture so that Westland Greenhouse Management may bring the advantages and knowledge to our clients.
In his spare time, Jos likes to race in competitive go kart circuits, playing squash and spending time with family.
