Russian growers interested in used machinery

What happens to outdated horticultural machines? Surprisingly, there’s still money in it, proves Bas Vervoorn from Lingeburg BV, a supplier of new and used horticultural supplies. "We focus mainly on the cut flowers and potted plants industry. We’re not as active on the vegetable market, but that was never a conscious decision, it just worked out that way. However, there are abundant opportunities in that sector."

People buy more and more stuff online, and that also goes for greenhouse appliances. At the same time, it’s a market that’s hard to completely digitize. "We sell a lot of machines and usually hefty sums are involved. Everything is on display on our website. Still, most sales are done right here in our showroom.”

Dutch floriculture is extensive and one of the game makers in the global market. Demand for new greenhouse supplies is prevalent, but for used machinery and equipment? According to Vervoorn, demand is definitely there. "On the Dutch market, we mainly deal in greenhouse supplies. Used machines tend to go abroad. Especially to Eastern Europe and Russia, where there's great demand for machinery for the cultivation of roses." The focus on Russia is also evident from the fact that Lingeburg’s website can be consulted entirely in Russian.
