Kramp has fitted its roof with 1,636 solar panels that will generate 400,000 kWh of green energy every year. That’s enough sustainable energy to power around 20% of the activities of this full-service supplier of parts, technical services and business solutions – equal to the annual consumption of more than 100 households.
Energy-saving projects are frequently started by small communities, and Kramp offered its community of employees the opportunity to buy ‘solar energy shares’ for €250 each. The participants have come together to form an employee cooperative that is eligible for a grant from the provincial authorities.
The energy project of Kramp – an NPM Capital portfolio company – is supported by the AGEM: the Achterhoekse Groene Energie Maatschappij (‘Achterhoek Green Energy Association’). The AGEM was founded by eight local authorities in the Achterhoek area, with the aim of making the area more sustainable.
Kramp is a full-service provider of parts and components, technical services and business solutions, and a strategic partner to businesses operating in the agricultural, parks and gardens, earth-moving, and OEM industries. Kramp’s online store provides dealers with a range of more than 700,000 products, all available for next-day delivery. Kramp operates at 21 sites across 19 countries and employs more than 2,600 people.
