To support the horticulture sector in solving climate, light and energy control challenges, Svensson and AGCULTURE have formed a global partnership.
With this collaboration, both companies aim to serve the market with their expertise and premium quality solutions. Furthermore, the partners aim to capture synergies through a combined solution of glass, screens and advisory services, which will help growers and greenhouse builders achieve enhanced greenhouse climate and cultivation.
Climate solution provider Svensson and high-tech glass provider AGCULTURE share the same vision to continuously provide innovative products and solutions solving growers’ challenges and needs. This common vision is the foundation of this collaboration.
“This partnership fits well with our strategy to create a better climate for people and plants in the horticulture industry. Through collaboration with AGCULTURE, we see great synergies in delivering light- and climate solutions to greenhouse owners and builders” says Anders Ludvigson, CEO at Svensson.
Svensson and AGCULTURE continue to sell their respective products and services while integrating the combined solutions into their portfolio. The complementarity of these two products in terms of energy savings and enhancement of the light quality inside the greenhouse along with advisory services, will optimize quality and yield while reducing energy costs.
“Studies [1-2], show that our combined products bring more than 23% additional energy savings with the same level of productivity and quality when used together. Because of this, we decided to move forward with forming an alliance and developing a global offer. We worked together with Svensson’s experts to provide the most complete solution possible that aligned with our vision: Empowering growers to improve plant quality and increase yields while reducing their carbon-based energy resources” explains Mohammad Shayesteh, Director of AGCULTURE.
