The Price & Pierce Fiber office was founded in November 2014.
That was the moment when Price & Pierce acquired the European recovered fibre activities of GP Harmon International and Jeroen de Vries was appointed as managing director.
The Price & Pierce Fiber team combines commercial strengths with extensive operational and logistic knowledge in the recovered fibre industry.
While none of the companies within the global corporation of Price & Pierce had any previous trade experience in the recovered fibre industry, the office in the Netherlands was able to immediately offer a collective 25 years of trading expertise in the industry.
