The ALTA GROUP was founded 25 years ago by its owner and CEO Frank Vergunst. This milestone was marked by a reception in the loft of one of the RDM buildings in the Rotterdam harbour. These buildings eradiate industrial development as they host a large number of start- and scale-ups, therefore matching nicely with the activities of ALTA. The reception was well attended: representatives from national and provincial government entities, universities, Port Authorities, current and former commercial partners came to congratulate Frank.
ALTA is currently working on the development of a pilot plant in Zeeuws Vlaanderen, the Mosselbanken. Paulinaschor, a nature reserve that is managed by Het Zeeuwse Landschap, is located next to this site. Frank is committed to preserving, but also developing Nature. Therefore he encouraged those who considered a gift to make a donation for the preservation of this nature reserve instead. The result was a substantial amount of money, for which Frank is very grateful.
It was an animated gathering, the more so as many attendees knew each other through the various networks.
