Sercom enters British horticulture with first climate computer

October 2019 marks the point that Sercom supplied the very first climate control computer system in a greenhouse in England.

Owner Oliver Wass of Olivers Plants in Colchester, selected the company as the supplier of an SC800 climate computer, at his nursery. Although the company supplied a climate computer in the United Kingdom as early as 1990, this is the first one designed for a greenhouse. The system supplied in 1990, was for a chicory producer. The very same computer is, after 29 years, still operational.

With the assistance of local installation company CMW Horticulture, from Brough, the system was supplied and installed within days. "We are very pleased to have CMW Horticulture’s technical assistance in the United Kingdom for both the horticultural and agricultural. We are also very optimistic about the further growth of Sercom within Great Britain", the company shares.

Mr. Wass also intends to further expand his activities by adding new greenhouses in the near future. For this, he is considering using the Sercom wireless system between the central computer and the field stations.
