Who are we?

Read our story

ARPE is a wholesaler of garden products. The company is owned by Arjan Gottmer; hence the AR in ARPE. The PE in ARPE belonged to Peter when there was a Peter. But there is no Peter anymore. There is now only Arjan. Well, in the name then. Because every day a lot of other people are running the business in Wieringerwerf! Our team presents itself below.

Our products

ARPE exists since 2001. We sell fire bowls, garden fireplaces, flame- and gas heaters, electric heaters and coolers, flame lights and all kinds of barbecues: all nice things for the garden! Take a look at PRODUCTS for our assortment overview.

We import our products independently. Because then we are on top of the quality ourselves, and so we have a direct influence on the cheapest possible price.

And it can be even smarter: we produce our own stone foils and drain grit. They really go all over the world! And we just make them ourselves. In house. In the Wieringermeer in North Holland.

ARPE owns all exclusive rights for the sale of EAZYBBQ and ACTIVA products (all product groups) in the Netherlands and in most other European countries, as well as all countries on the African continent and India.  

They do know us

You can find ARPE at various trade fairs or with advertisements in various trade journals. 

But they actually know us by now.
