CELEBRATING 10 YEARS OF OPTIGRÜN UK

This April marks the 10th anniversary of the establishment of Optigrün Limited in the UK. Although Optigrün has had a presence in the UK as far back as 2004 through our original distribution agreement with Flag UK and subsequently Soprema UK this business was managed by the export department at Optigrün International until 2009. The company was formed by our original managing director, Stefan Zeller, and it initially operated from the lounge of his house at the time in Welwyn Garden City, with our stock held at Soprema’s warehouse. We moved to offices in New Barnet in 2011 and when our agreement with Soprema ended in 2012 we started renting warehousing space nearby. Stefan Zeller left the business at the end of 2016 and Optigruen International and our current managing director, Nick Day, bought the company from him. At the same time, we moved to new offices back where it all started for us - in Welwyn Garden City!

We would like to take this opportunity to thank our partners and our customers for your continued support over this time and we look forward to what the next 10 years will bring.
