During the AVAG ‘Dutch Quality Hour’ at GreenTech 2018 on 13 June, chairman Harm Maters presented a important quality and innovation-related initiative from the greenhouse sector. The ‘HortiQ Hagelunie, Partners in Quality & Continuity’ partnership.
Peter Broekman, Managing Director of Hagelunie, signalled the official start of HortiQ Hagelunie. After a year in the development phase as a HortiQ concept, the collaboration between the HortiQ-certified companies and insurance firm Hagelunie is now as solid as a rock. From now on, the partnership will be known as ‘HortiQ Hagelunie, Partners in Quality & Continuity’.
Peter Broekman: “This partnership enables us to offer even closer to support to businesses throughout the construction process. In the case of any damage, the grower is up and running again almost immediately. We guarantee the customer that not only the greenhouse itself but also the systems comply with objective quality standards. We share our knowledge right from the design phase of the project, and the customer can continue to rely on our guidance during the construction process too. This partnership allows us to contribute Hagelunie’s extensive horticultural knowledge and experience, from greenhouse manufacturing and systems to plant material, as well as our international experience.”
