The story of Othmar Decorations
25 years of knowledge and experience, the foundation for success
Othmar Decorations is a company with a story.
A story that began with Harry Oude Weernink’s longstanding experience in the floral industry.
Let us tell you a bit more about our history.
1997: The laying of the foundation
Othmar Decorations was established in 1997. In that year, Harry Oude Weernink used his 25 years of experience in the floral industry to lay the foundation for our company. This resulted in an importer for home decorations and natural and processing products specifically aimed at the floral industry. His experience in purchasing in South-East Asia made that he was soon able to set up a logistically sound import process. His knowledge, combined with his creative eye for colours and materials soon turned Othmar Decorations into a success.
2001: Away from the attic room
While at the start, the three employees of the company where based in the attic room of Ganzenmarkt 10 in Ootmarsum, by 2001, the situation entirely changes. The attic room is exchanged for a beautiful building situated in the industrial area the Mors, also in the picturesque town of Ootmarsum. The location offers the possibility of presenting the decorations in a beautiful showroom, and also consists of a warehouse, a reception and a parking area. A must, as the company is growing fast!
2006: Another move
On to building number 3! Our present premises suit both us and our customers very well at the moment. Not only our staff, but also the number of customers has grown considerably over these years, both nationally and internationally. We now deliver to about 34 countries. A mere feat, especially if you realise that we started with two desks in an attic room.
At present, Othmar Decorations has grown to being one of the most important importers for the floral industry. We travel all over the world to put together the most unique, creative and inspiring collections. We meticulously follow the trends, find out about our customers’ wishes, but we also attach importance to creating our own trends and collections. We want to keep surprising you and tempt you, so that in turn, you can tempt your customer. Have you visited our showroom yet? You really should. Why don’t you drop by, we promise you will not be disappointed!
