Our story

Since its establishment in 1971, A. Jansen B.V. has developed from a one-man business into a financially healthy group of companies with over 400 employees, represented in 7 countries. Craftsmanship, quality, personal service and circularity are the key pillars of one of the largest independent family-owned business in the construction industry. In principle, we do not build ourselves, but our products and services make your building project a success in the most efficient and sustainable manner possible. Almost half a century old, but still brimming with ambition. “It’s in our nature to always seek the best solution. All our services are linked in a circular manner to be able to offer our customers optimal service.”


A. Jansen B.V. stands out from the competition due to a highly circular signature, a people-oriented, flat corporate culture and 100% attention to our customers’ demands. By recycling and reusing products in a clever way and continuous investments in environmentally friendly innovations and education, we always strive for the highest possible quality. In terms of products, people, and provision of services.


On average, prosperity will double over the next two decades. With natural resources already being scarce, they will not be able to meet future demand. On the other hand, the waste mountain continues to grow. In principle, it holds enough base materials for our future materials need. As such, knowledge of these waste flows, specifications and purity are our priority, so that rejects and waste in the chain and after use can be reused at the highest possible quality level. That is the only way in which we can make our living environment sustainable. This vision determines our behaviour; we want to be at the forefront of creating a circular economy.

Circularity is simply in our genes.

A. Jansen B.V.’s history begins in 1971. By purchasing a second-hand loading shovel, Toon Jansen laid the foundations for what was to become a flourishing family company with 5 divisions and 7 branches half a century later. “We’ve been involved in circular enterprise from the very beginning.”

You can count on us

  • Unparalleled resolve
  • Passionate entrepreneurs
  • Pioneering innovation

Our corporate DNA comprises four building blocks. These pillars form the foundation of A. Jansen B.V.’s corporate culture and show what we stand for: 100% quality, satisfied and returning customers, contribute to a better world and continuous innovation.
