Canada: Roelands' expansion on track for Ontario's new season
After a long delay, the first expansion of the Canadian young plant propagator is in full swing now. "Greenhouse manufacturer South Essex Fabricating and the building crew from Ruthven Greenhouse Construction, are doing a great job to get everything done just in time," said Arie. "The work is carried out perfectly and there is even tighter planning, we start at sunrise and stop at sunset."
The construction crew are working such long days due to the coming deadline. "The greenhouse needs to be finished, and in operation on November 7. We need the extra 4 acres by that time because we have to complete all the new orders with young plants. The entire production space of the expansion is already fully booked, completely full and sold out!"
This coming weekend the crew will start with the heat distribution pipes, as well as the infrastructure for the irrigation and electricity. The glazing is planned to start next week, and planned to be completed within 4 days.

This is the first 4 acre expansion, the next expansion (phase 3) is also in the planning. Click here to read this entire article and see the photo report.
