From Professionals


"The machines can make or break a company"

With 18 years of experience and 21 employees, Booiman Tuinen BV is a modern, medium-sized and successful landscaping company. This is their take on the importance of reliable equipment.

Booiman Tuinen BV specialises in garden construction. The company’s enthusiastic staff and inspiring leadership have put them at the forefront of their industry. We asked owner Henk Booiman which jobs give him the most satisfaction.

“Almost every day is interesting. We’re currently working on a contract with the new Van Der Valk Hotel in Sneek. It’s very challenging as it demands all our skills and experience to develop and manage this vast property.”

What do you look for when buying equipment?

“Reliability, ergonomics, cost of ownership and power ratio are the factors that I’d say our machines have to live up to. That’s what can make or break a company.”

“Their advice is always excellent and working with Husqvarna is definitely a collaboration that pays off.”

You’ve been working with Husqvarna products since 1998. What’s it been like?

“Before deciding that Husqvarna was the right partner for my business, we worked with machines from many different companies. Apart from superb products, Husqvarna offers me the best support. I deal directly with the servicing dealer Tijms in Geesbrug and they are proactive as well as service-oriented. Their advice is always excellent and apart from products, they help me with financing, recurrent services and assistance in the field. Working with Husqvarna is definitely a collaboration that pays off.”
