The company J.P. Vis & Zn. was founded by “gramps” Vis in 1932. Mr. J.P. Vis started with the use of horse and wagon, and gathered vegetables and fruit from local growers, transporting these to the “Kwintsheul” auction hall. The Transport Company was growing very fast, and in the year 1938 he could afford to buy his first real lorry. The was an A-Ford, to be seen in the appended photo.
This lorry is still in our possession, and is to be seen in our own small museum.
In the year 1958, his son Koos entered the business, and expanded the activities. Later on, the son named Loek joined the business and pretty soon, international transports became part of the company’s activities. As from the seventies, J.P. Vis concentrated their activities to the transport to Sweden. Over the years, the J.P. Vis transport focused exclusively to Sweden.
Since the year 2005, the brothers René, John & Jan Vis took over, as the third generation, the general lead of the J.P. Vis & Zn Company.
With due modesty, we are proud to be a private transporter for (big) Swedish and Dutch principals, with a many years’ cooperation and reliable service. Your cargo – in our hands, in our care!
