As of June 1, 2015, Horticoop Technical Services is the exclusive dealer for AGAM Energy Systems’ products in the Netherlands and neighboring German state Lander (Lower Saxony and North Rhine-Westphalia). AGAM Energy Systems, headquartered in Hod-HaSharon, Israel, develops and manufactures energy-saving, environmentally-friendly dehumidification systems for the horticulture industry.
Like Horticoop, AGAM is an innovative company always striving to develop sustainable solutions to increase its customers’ profits and to improve the environment.
One example of these efforts is AGAM’s VLHC (Eco Climate Converter). This machine decreases the humidity and disease pressure in greenhouses while providing energy savings.
By drawing humid greenhouse air through a shower of salt, warm air is produced that can be used to heat the greenhouse. A beneficial side effect of this process is pathogenic fungi, including Botrytis and mildew, are killed. This helps to decrease the disease burden on greenhouse plants.
Currently 17 Eco Climate Converters are operating in the Netherlands and Germany.
With this exclusive dealership agreement, the two companies deepen their cooperative efforts to offer high quality products while strengthening their corporate social responsibility efforts.
Horticoop Technical Services is the technical division of Cooperation Royal Tuinbouwcentrum Horticoop u.a., which has been delivering and maintaining high quality horticultural installations for over 40 years.
