Our company

Healthy and engaged staff

At Vreugdenhil we set great store by vitality, employee development and a safe working environment. In 2020, the number of permanent employees grew from 459 to 477. Gorinchem employs 250 people, making it our largest site.

Vreugdenhil wants to be a place where people work safely and in good health, and enjoy helping to create a successful company. Keeping employees healthy and engaged has been a challenge in the past year. Close attention was paid to preventive measures, working from home and finding a good work-life balance.
