Thwan van Gennip on Meteor Systems:
“I have been working with Meteor Systems for over 10 years now. They have designed and produced various systems for our company, including 10 hectares of greenhouse space for our strawberry production, 7 hectares for producing hanging cuttings, 15 hectares of racks under rain shelters for strawberry production, and 4.5 hectares of Mini Air tunnel for raspberry production.
I had heard from other growers that Meteor Systems delivers good quality and that the materials they use last for decades. At our nursery we strive for the best quality products and plants, which is why we want top quality systems as well.
My regular contact at Meteor Systems is Erik van Nieuwenhuizen. We work together to find ways to optimise the crop even further. Erik is open to new developments and involves us in them as well. In short, I am very happy with both the Meteor Systems products and our close working relationship.”
In collaboration with the Thiedemann brothers at Beeren Brüder, Ridder Drive Systems and Van der Valk Horti Systems, Meteor Systems has recently completed a Mini-Air project that allows crops to be grown under plastic covers outdoors. Beeren Brüder is an organic nursery with generations of expertise in cultivating strawberries, raspberries and blackberries. The family business is run by Klaus and Frank Thiedemann and is located in the municipality Oesterwurth in the German district of Dithmarschen.
