To install a screen system in an existing greenhouse is no problem for Luiten Greenhouses. "But a plastic greenhouse in Vietnam is slightly more difficult," said Kick. "The greenhouse is not designed for it, so you have to be more creative because sometimes certain things are in the way and need to be changed or modified. Then it comes down to proper fitting, measuring, communication and actually above all proper selection, observing and checking."
For Luiten it's a nice job. Not only because it is a great project, but also because Vietnamese horticulture is in motion. "The market still has to be developed, but you can see that many companies want to make the next step. It is striking that in politics and in middle management there are a lot of women in key positions in purchasing," said Kick. "In horticulture you still see many low-tech plastic greenhouses, but the market is developing. The choice for low-tech plastic greenhouses is made because of cost considerations, but outfitted with additional technical systems to deliver a better quality."
