The location of Cultivate’16 in Columbus, OH, also served as the ideal time and place for Dümmen Orange to announce the official opening of its new North American headquarters in Ohio’s state capital.
“Here in Columbus, we now have a superb new office of which we can be proud and that will assist us in providing a great customer service experience,” said Perry Wismans, Managing Partner for Dümmen Orange, during a ribbon cutting ceremony that took place on July 11.
“Thank you for your support in making Dümmen Orange a part of the downtown Columbus community,” Wismans said before a group of representatives from the local community.
The move to High Street in Columbus from a smaller office in nearby Hilliard, OH, supports the company’s vision to be integrated into a vibrant and inspiring community, and provides a bright, modern workspace for its approximately 30 local employees. Within the community, Dümmen Orange has already partnered with local organizations including the Columbus Museum of Art, Franklin Park Conservatory, Fashion Week Columbus, the Short North Alliance, and PlaceMakes.
Dümmen Orange, a leading company in breeding and development of annuals, perennials, potted plants, succulents, and cut flowers, employs more than 6,000 people worldwide. In addition to a large marketing and sales network, Dümmen Orange has a strong network of production locations. The key to the success of Dümmen Orange is a wide and deep product range supported by a global supply chain. The company embraces its social responsibility and invests in the health, safety, and personal development of its employees.
