Obituary notice Mr Ad van den Bosch

It is with great sadness that we have heard of the passing of our founder Ad van den Bosch. Ad passed away on 12 June 2016 from the consequences of Alzheimers disease. He turned 78 years.
 
Van den Bosch Transporten was founded in 1964 by Ad van den Bosch. With one single truck he started from Erp, in Brabant. In those days his parents managed an expedition company, which he incorporated some time later.

In the early days Ad was both driver, planner and bookkeeper at the same time. Very soon the fleet grew and so did the staff. Thanks to a strong vision and the enormous passion of Ad, the company grew to become an international transport company, specialized in bulk transport, in the following years. 

Ad was very loyal to his customers and their interest was unconditionally always put first. This resulted in many long-term and personal relationships. Ad was an entrepreneur in heart and soul, with an eye for detail. He was critical and very direct, but also had a large heart for people. Together with him we have worked hard, but also got to celebrate many business achievements. Also after the transfer of the company in 1998 he was able to enjoy the company and the contacts with employees and relations.
 
We greatly appreciate and respect the way Ad van den Bosch grew our company. He taught us a great deal and even today we can still observe his way of working in our organization.

We convey our deepest sympathies to the family Van den Bosch.
