Erik van Zanten, co-worker in our logistics department has utilized his knowledge and experience as a historian to research the corporate history of Deli Home; 150 years of history captured in a single book. The published final result, titled A Heart of Wood, can now be read on our website.

Several well-known names are mentioned such as Skantrae, Bruynzeel, Weekamp, Lundia, Gamma, Hubo and Wickes in addition to Fikszo, Steffex and the Outdoor Life Group. The manner in which all of this comes together can be read in A Heart Of Wood that covers so much more than just the unique foundation of Deli Home. It is also about knowledge and craftsmanship, international entrepreneurship, cooperation and growth.
