Magnit choose Svensson as solution provider when expanding the business

One of the largest supermarket chains in Russia, Magnit, is expanding its greenhouse complex with forty hectares for growing its own vegetables. The company approached the Dutch greenhouse builder Certhon to build the complex. Svensson is not only supplying the climate screens for the expansion, but also provided training and guidance for both the installers and the end users.

The project is unique because Magnit is one of the first retailers in Russia who, on top of purchasing from wholesalers, will be growing their own greenhouse crops. The retailer's first twenty hectares of greenhouses were built about five years ago. In efforts to further increase yields, Magnit founder and CEO Sergey Galitsky expanded the company’s growing concept to include breeding cucumbers in a high quality glass greenhouse. A deal is clinched with the Dutch greenhouse builder Certhon for the construction of another forty hectares of high tech greenhouses in the southern Russian Krasnodar region for growing cucumbers. Twenty hectares of those are currently under construction.
Advising installers and end user training
In addition to delivering high quality climate screens for the Magnit project, Svensson heavily invested in the transfer of knowledge and know-how of the screen technology. Svensson consultants travelled to Krasnodar to provide training to Russian end users on the practical use of the screens, so they can achieve an optimum return.
