Importer, producer and supplier of fish products specialising in the North American market
At the end of 2018, Dayseaday acquired a controlling interest of 51% in the Urk-based sea fish trader Urker Zeevishandel Gebr. Post BV. The company had been struggling through a succession process and with financial assistance from Dayseaday, it is preparing itself for a brighter future.
Lub Romkes serves as site manager at Gebr. Post on behalf of Dayseaday, where he spends multiple half-days during his working week. The collaboration will allow the company to expand their product range as well as making Gebr. Post’s client base available to Dayseaday.
The company is based at the address Stortemelk 1 in Urk and is a production and trading company predominantly specialising in North Sea fish. It’s a genuine and committed family business that produces high-quality fish products.
The fish is sorted, prepared and/or filleted before being individually quick-frozen (IQF) in the company’s own tunnel freezer.
The company has deep-freeze storage capacity of 900 pallets. Gebr. Post’s clients are mainly wholesalers and importers/distributors with America serving as a vital market for tongue, plaice, flounder, turbot and megrim. The company, founded in 1977, employs around 20 staff and generates around 8 million euros in turnover. Gebr. Post also owns a number of strong brands such as Marinus and Prince of Urk.
