CambridgeHOK, a company working in design and development of automated vertical farming centres and commercial glasshouses, and Havecon, a Dutch greenhouse builder, are celebrating their ten years of partnership. Over the past decade, glasshouses completed in partnership between the two firms have totalled several dozens of hectares in size, using about 300,000 square metres of glass, and over a million kg of steel.
Ramon Bol, European Sales Manager of Havecon, said: “Our partnership with CambridgeHOK is truly one which has gone from strength to strength, year after year. We believe ourselves to be fortunate to have such a close working relationship with a company which can add so much more to our products for our customers in the UK. We know our glasshouses are world-leading in terms of their design, structure and build, but they need to be used and managed efficiently to bring the best results. We look forward to many more years of successful partnership working.”
Patrick Harte, Head of Commercial at CambridgeHOK said: “This is a business relationship which has brought together two firms at the forefront of their specialties. As individual businesses we work and specialise in complimentary aspects of the commercial glasshouse sector, but combined our expertise brings huge benefits to UK horticultural customers as they can access a complete turnkey package for the very best performing facilities of their kind. The combination of Havecon’s design and build, and our knowledge of glasshouse environmental control and efficiencies, brings complete assurance to our UK customers over quality and reliability. We are delighted to be marking 10 years of working in partnership, we have some very exciting projects ahead in the future, and we hope to work together for many years to come.”
