About us

Our company originated in Merelbeke in 1957.  At this time Joseph Deforche started cultivating flowering houseplants for the local market. 

In the early 80’s Joseph’s son Rob went to the United Kingdom for a traineeship.  Through his contacts the first foreign delivery became a reality.

Many deliveries later to, amongst others, the UK, Germany and Russia, Rob Deforche founded what is now known as Deforche Export in 1992. 

Today Deforche Export is situated in Beervelde (Lochristi), near the entrance and exit of the E17 motorway.  This location makes us easily accessible.
