Handelsmaatschappij Ursan NV was founded in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, in 1956. Hans van der Zanden became the new owner in 1983. What had once started as a modest trading company is now international importer Ursan Verpakkingen B.V.
Since the eighties, Ursan Verpakkingen has entered into partnerships with German manufacturers of packaging materials and acted as their representative for the Benelux market. In 2006, Ad Staals and Jan Brok took over the company and Ursan Verpakkingen moved to Veldhoven. Since 2012, the company has been fully owned by Ad Staals.
Initially, Ursan Verpakkingen focused on the supply of glass and plastic bottles and jars, caps, plastic and aluminium tubes, aluminium cans, applicators and pipettes. During the last decade, however, the company has expanded its activities and extended its assortment to include specialised products such as lotion pumps, mist sprayers, trigger sprayers and petpackers.
As a trading company, Ursan Verpakkingen offers an extensive range of packaging materials at the best price-quality ratio.
Ursan Verpakkingen is the sales representative for such companies as elm-plastic GmbH, Erwin Grossmann GmbH & Co. KG and Linhardt GmbH & Co. KG.
In 2019, Ursan Verpakkingen entered into a partnership with Treffpack (Germany) and Gaasch Packaging NV (Belgium).
