New R&D greenhouse facility for Syngenta, Enkhuizen
Monday 26 November 2018
VB completed the structure of a new R&D greenhouse facility by order of Syngenta Seeds, Enkhuizen, the Netherlands. The new R&D so called back-cross factory will help to speed up the process of bringing new value-adding traits to the market, with a quicker and more reliable automated Trait Introgression process. This month, VB started with the building of several integrated climate and adaptive screen systems.
“The direct working methods and short lines of communication, together constitute the most important elements of our collaboration. We require high quality standards when it comes to safety and construction: VB enables us to test our new facility while building it.”
