What started as a small family business in 1962 focusing around top soil delivery and the creation of Van Beek’s famous “original triple mix” has blossomed into a growing garden centre in Oakville and Mississauga.
In 1962 George Van Beek filled a yellow school bus with a top soil mixture that he developed on his family’s farm and delivered it to gardeners and landscapers in and around Oakville. What George called “Van Beek’s Premium Original Mixed Soil” is now famously referred to as “triple mix” and is a household name when it comes to quality top soil.
A lot has changed over the past 50 years, but one thing that hasn’t changed is the Van Beek family’s commitment to offering quality garden supply products at fair prices. The family business has grown over the last 5 decades. In addition to adding a second location, Van Beek's now delivers to Oakville, Burlington, Milton, Mississauga, Etobicoke and other parts of the Greater Toronto Area. Due to their hard work and dedication the Van Beek’s name is still recognized as a garden supply leader in the area, 50 years later.
Dedication to customer service is the basis behind Van Beek’s continued success as a quality garden centre and garden supply business. Making every customer a repeat customer who is satisfied with the products, service and advice offered is really the key to the company’s success. In fact, whether it’s a custom top soil mix, mulch, firewood or aggregates and stones, clients have been relying on Van Beek’s for their garden centre needs since the business opened in 1962.
Many customers have grown with the Van Beek’s family and local residents appreciate the personalized service and unique family atmosphere that is so hard to find now a days. However, the links to the past that Van Beek’s is so proud of have not limited their ability to remain current and plan for the future growth of their business. Van Beek’s has undertaken an aggressive marketing campaign to bring their family name to new residents, families and businesses in the area.
A key challenge for Van Beek’s Garden Supplies is how to capitalize on the growth of the local area. Since Milton is Canada’s fastest growing community there are many new residents who are not familiar with the Van Beek’s family name. Synonymous with garden supplies in Oakville, Van Beek’s new challenge of keeping up with expansion in the area and remaining competitive is possible with new marketing techniques combined with superior customer service, quality products and competitive pricing.
The Van Beek family takes great pride in the success of their business and their hard work has paid off, as they are recognized as a leader in custom top soil mixes, interlocking products as well as rock and flagstones.
Congratulations to the Van Beek’s family as well as the entire Van Beek’s Garden Supplies team on their 50th anniversary, an amazing accomplishment for any business in this day and age.
