History

The Labee Group Moerdijk was established in 1991 by Barend Labee after he took over the Vezelpers in Langerak. To the activities those years belongs the collection of wood fiber for the production of animal bedding, fire logs and wood pellets. The establishment in Langerak was soon too small and some business activities, among which the production of wood pellets and animal bedding, were moved to the port area in Moerdijk. The relocation of the production of fire logs to Moerdijk took place in 2001. In 2007 Barend Labee transferred all the production activities to the new holding of which the two sons Herbert and Alex are the owners. Together with Hylko Brandsma they form the management of the Labee Group Moerdijk and its operating companies. In the same year we bought the transport company Houtvezel Moerdijk B.V. with its activities. Several acquisitions followed and by expansion of the company we purchased new industrial area in 2014 in the port of Moerdijk. In 2017 we opened a new building and expanded our business activities further. Our operating company Energy Pellets Trading was established.
