About Us

Growing Partnerships

CMW Horticulture was founded in June 1989 and, from humble beginnings in a small rented business unit and portacabin, CMW has built a strong financial base and now operates from freehold administrative and warehousing premises conveniently situated in E Yorkshire near the M62 with easy access to all UK and European customers and suppliers. Passionate about the success of CMW, many of the founding team still work in the business today.

In April of 2021, CMW was acquired by Bosman Van Zaal, a renowned specialist in turnkey horticultural projects. From that point on we were even better able to respond to technical developments in the horticultural sector in the UK and Ireland, as we can make use of the extensive team of horticultural engineers in Aalsmeer, that works on the development of Venlo glasshouses, polythene greenhouses and also focuses on logistical, cultivation, water, climate, electrical and control systems as well as data logging.
