Executive Assistant Angélique Nooijen, who is based at Vepak’s Menhirweg site, has one of the most dynamic jobs going at our company – one where flexibility is the name of the game. And if that isn’t enough, this talented all-rounder is also involved in marketing communications. To find out just what Angélique gets up to on a typical workday, we tagged along with her for an entire day.
The Van de Ven family increases ownership Vetipak
Usually in this blog we are not talking about stocks and other financial matters. But this time we make an exception. The Van de Ven family is increasing her ownership of Vetipak again.
Until recently, Vetipak’s shares were held by three families. The Van de Westelaken and Den Otter family became co-owners already early in the history of our company. Thanks to their involvement, Vetipak has grown into a company that is ready for the future in every sense. We are very grateful to them for that!
At the end of 2019, a process started in which Arno van de Ven and his family mostly take over the shares again. From the strong position of our company, they want to continue the long-term course with confidence.
Arno: “We want to continue to grow, in breadth and depth. In other words: we want to increase our market share in the markets in which we are already active, but also tap into new markets.”
This means that Vetipak continues to invest heavily in technology, innovation and sustainability. Arno: “That is the best way to remain an attractive cooperation partner for our customers, employees and suppliers, And to continue to make an essential social contribution. Because that is also important to us as shareholders.”
So no big changes? “No, definitely not. However, the supervisory board will become an advisory board. The Executive Board remains unchanged. We simply continue in the current way: full speed ahead towards the future!”
Arno van de Ven: “Full speed ahead towards the future!”

Solved: Emergency Job for Nationwide Consortium
It’s a Wednesday afternoon. We receive a call from the National Consortium for Medical Devices, based in Den Haag. They’re urgently looking for large-scale packaging services. And not only do they need these services “yesterday,” they want the reassurance that the packaging operations comply with the strictest quality and hygiene guidelines. “Can you handle this sort of thing?”, they ask us. Six days later, we’ve massively upscaled our Personal Care division, to the point where we can now deliver tens of thousands of kits a week.
Oss takes the lead in circular packaging
Just like Vetipak, the municipality of Oss is very active in the field of sustainable packaging. Due to the strong presence of the packaging industry in the area, the municipality has even launched the Oss Circular Packaging Innovation Program. A publication on this subject recently appeared in FOOD Locations, for which our CCO Mark van der Burgt was also interviewed.
