Boer Group

Boer Group collects used textiles, sorts them and prepares them for a second use. In addition, the Boer Group works with businesses that recycle textiles in sustainable and diverse ways. 

Within the Boer Group, the companies Curitas (Netherlands and Belgium) and FWS (Germany) are responsible for collecting the textiles. The textiles are collected in clothing containers as well as door-to-door collection. The Boer Group collection businesses all work together with a charitable body. At least 10% of the returns from the textiles collected benefit these organisations. 

At present, 7 sorting businesses are active within the Boer Group. These are situated in the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany. Together, they sort 450,000 kg. of textiles per day and employ around 500 production workers. 

The Boer Group also has a sorting branch that is completely dedicated to sorting clothing from the ‘60s and ‘70s which are sold in a chain of trendy vintage shops and an online store.

Boer Groep Team

The current Boer Group team is an enthusiastic group of managers who have all found their individual challenges in the world of textile recycling. Most of the managers in the team have spent their entire careers in this sector and each and every one is a specialist in the field.

The team is led by a man who, over the last 40 years, has managed to expand the Boer Group into one of the biggest textile recycling companies in the world, and is also the founder of such businesses as Marbo Recycling BV and Euro Used Clothing BV. As his children also have a keen interest in the field, the Boer Group will remain a true family business in the future, too.
