Hardenberg's Lord Mayor helps Heuver Tyrewholesale switch to energy-neutral


-PRESS RELEASE- On Monday 15 January, Hardenberg's Lord Mayor, Peter Snijders, helped Heuver Tyrewholesale to switch to energy-neutral operations. The company's solar panels were formally commissioned by cutting a ceremonial ribbon. Environmental awareness is a key theme at the family business. When the warehouse was expanded to 43,000 m2, space was created to install over 1600 solar panels. And this allowed Heuver's operations to become completely energy-neutral. The installation is able to supply energy to the whole premises. During the official ceremony, Bertus Heuver called upon other major companies in the region to follow suit.

Energy-neutral operations

Heuver Tyrewholesale now possesses the largest solar panel roof in the municipality of Hardenberg. Lord Mayor Snijders had the honour of officially commissioning the installation. Naturally, partners Mijn Energiefabriek (advice and design) and Langeland-Borgman (installation) were also in attendance. Heuver is the largest company in Hardenberg to make the switch to energy-neutral operations. The set-up also has spare capacity, which means it will be possible to supply energy to Heuver's own Profile Car & Tyreservice outlets. 

Appeal to other companies

Heuver's warehouse expansion (to 43,000 m2) placed great emphasis on corporate social responsibility. From ‘very sustainable utility construction’ to the most efficient energy management possible - this was possible thanks to 1,600 solar panels. Bertus Heuver, director at Heuver Tyrewholesale: “As a family business, we pay a lot of attention to people, the environment and our role in society. We are the first major company in the municipality to switch to energy-neutral operations and see this as a service to society. We want to make sure everyone can look forward to a bright future. That is why we're appealing to fellow companies to follow suit. If everyone does their fair share in reducing environmental damage, we will be able to pass on a better world to coming generations.”
