About us

Building experts since 1880

Jorritsma Bouw has been a modern, progressive family business for five generations. The history of our company goes back to 1880, when Johannes Jorritsma founded his construction company in a canal house in Bolsward. He was a man who knew his trade, a man who was a master builder. With his craftsmanship he laid the foundation for the current Jorritsma Bouw. With 250 employees and a turnover of more than 100 million euros per year, we are one of the largest builders in the Northern Netherlands. Our head office is still in Bolsward. We also have a office in Groningen.

Our projects range from a small renovation for private individuals to complex and challenging projects for the business market. We also take care of the maintenance and management of projects. Both for projects that we have realized ourselves and for existing complexes and homes.

We are the builders of all these projects – just like Johannes Jorritsma at the time – and we work together on a beautiful end result. Keywords are trust, openness and transparent communication. If the preconditions are difficult, we go the extra mile to achieve a perfect end result. For our clients, this means a smooth construction process and delivery of a quality product that meets all requirements 100%.
