your export goal, our mission
With the opening of our offices in Germany, China and Japan, Export Partner itself is going international.
After years of experience as co-owner of Bakkerij van Diermen, Johan van Diermen starts Export Partner. The goal: to help other companies with the establishment of international trade.
Beginning with about ten members, by 1991 the NEC had over 550 members. Through world travelers, trade missions were conducted for member companies to find agents, importers and distributors for them and to gather market information.
The foundation’s membership already surpasses 10 members. International expansion is attractive to companies.
4 entrepreneurs put their heads together to increase their export opportunities. The Nederlandse Export Combinatie (NEC) was born. With Prince Bernhard as an ambassador and guardian of the Dutch business community. What once began with the man with the sample suitcase has grown into a worldwide phenomenon in the field of trade missions and trade fairs.
In the early 1950s, the sourdough manufacturer from Drenthe, Lambert Fokkema was traveling through Kenya to bring attention to his products. There Lambert met a Dutch trader in hops, who had an appointment with the same buyer half an hour before him. A waste of time and money Lambert then thought, which has formed the basis for an unique export club like the Dutch Export Combination.
Our online marketing department is a reality.
