Project BayerJan 16, 2018
On Monday 8 Januari 2018 the inauguration of a big project we are very proud of took place! We got to built a pest control greenhouse of 11.000 m2 for Bayer Crop Science, for their new insecticide research station.
The project includes a greenhouse consisting of 133 compartments with different climate conditions. There are differences in humidity, temperature, length of day and air filtration, so that different experiments can be conducted. These conditions are created among other things by moving fields, rain and UV simulation.
We were present at the event in Monheim, together with twohundred invited guests, in the person of Gerard Peek. As proud and grateful main contractor we congratulate Bayer with the opening. Together to find new selective insecticides to protect crops all around the world!
