ERMELO Marinus Pul, founder of Namture, was invited to exhibit their products during the festive opening of the new Qredits business premises in Almelo. Queen Maxima was present to officially open the building. Namture was one of the 6 invited companies for the sustainability market during the opening because they fit in perfectly with the theme 'helping SMEs become more sustainable'.
“I started Namture last year together with my brother, who lives in Vietnam. In collaboration with the local Vietnamese population, we produce coconut shells, coconut candles, etc. These products are normally burned as waste. We donate part of the profits locally to make the world a bit more beautiful together."
After Queen Maxima opened the building, she visited the associated sustainability market. Marinus, founder of Namture: "In addition to the fact that it was of course special to meet the Queen, it was special to see how enthusiastic Queen Maxima became about our story and associated products. It was also inspiring to hear her personal ideas about possible expansion/broadening of our company. It's great that Queen Maxima is very involved with starting, sustainable entrepreneurs."
