About Agricon

Circular. Sustainable.Together.

The family

Agricon has been producing bark products since 1997. Above all, though, Agricon is a family business, founded by brothers Guy, Luc and Jef Convens. The diverse talents of Guy, who inspired the project, soon led to new insights. Production activities were soon followed by a well-organised distribution network for bark products.

As Europe's largest producer of bark, we soon set about recycling the co-streams released during the production process. As a result, the activities on the Overpelt site expanded quickly and substantially, with ground cover for example. The expansion gave Agricon a contemporary look and an identity under which our entire organisation headed in the direction of having a positive impact.

In no time, Agricon emerged as a leading company in the production and distribution of all kinds of products of natural origin. Meanwhile, customers came to rely on us for everything from a variety of bark products and potting soil, sand and ornamental cuttings to wood fuels and wood pellets during the cold winter months.

A purposeful approach!

Our purposeful approach and strategic location proved to be a perfect match for a variety of clients. Today, Agricon has grown into a full-fledged group with branches and loading locations across Europe. Our products are offered Europe-wide, and their sustainable quality and our innovative ideas for a greener world have turned out to be winners. We have now run with Guy's ideas for three generations.

Our vision

What has Agricon also been working on since 1997? Putting nature at the centre and helping to make an impact for a greener world.

We do this not just through natural products or sustainable partnerships, but by building our sustainable vision into our operations and into our new location. For example, by recycling waste streams that would otherwise end up in landfills. Or by developing new machines and technologies that ensure we roll out our green vision worldwide. This is how we tackle every sustainable challenge.

Agricon's expertise in circular raw materials and peat replacement potting soils has put it on the map as one of the pioneers in Europe. We've achieved this by combining strategy, creativity and our green vision. Sustainability in all its facets: this is how we ensure satisfied gardeners who make the environment greener!

Do we always go the extra mile? Of course we do. But it's only possible with a team that shares the same values as the Covens family. Loyal souls who feel involved and want to help safeguard our vision in a warm working environment are welcome to join us!
