About Van Uden Holding
A family business, invested in our partnerships
As a family business, we are committed to the values that have sustained us since our founding in 1848. Above all, we always invest with the long term in mind. The relationships we enter with our partners intensify over the years; their challenges and their customers’ needs are central from day one. Moreover, we distinguish ourselves in the market through flexibility, expertise, and environmentally friendly solutions.
We fully engage with our partners, who we consider to be part of our own company.
Combined forces, committed to responsible forms of production and logistics
At Van Uden we combine forces with companies that are committed to responsible forms of production and logistics. These are generally reputable companies with a strong market position. Naturally, we are also open to rapidly growing companies that require capital to expand.
Investing in logistics and industrial property
"As a family business, we invest in genuine collaborations and fully engage with our partners"
Giving back to society worldwide
Van Uden has always endeavoured to give something back to society, for instance, in the form of annual donations to art or charities such as museums, orchestras, the Theater Rotterdam Schouwburg, the Sophia Children's Hospital, Blijdorp Zoo and an orphanage/school in Vietnam.
At the beginning of 2013, the Van Uden board became partners in N/a’an kusê Holding Pty. This company is established in Windhoek, Namibia and by developing and exploiting various lodges and wildlife reserves in Namibia can support various good causes such as the N/a’an kusê Foundation.
Mai Nha employs a pragmatic approach: we implement well defined actions whose results are measurable. Our results are assessed on a regular basis by independent professionals. This quality requirement applies to all our programs, be it the children at Mai Nha or the scholarship students.
