"Covid-19 doesn’t slow down high-tech greenhouse construction"

Recently Stefan Vogrincic, Consultant at Grower2Grower, met with James Harris, Managing Director of Apex Greenhouses, at a project currently being built near Auckland, New Zealand. Stefan wanted to talk to James about the state of the industry post the Covid-19 lockdowns NZ has endured so far this year.  

Six months ago, in the first NZ lockdown, James was unsure how or if upcoming projects would go ahead. However, not only are they going ahead but business is thriving in both New Zealand and Australia.  Currently, Apex have brand new high-tech glasshouses under construction in both countries. James is excited about the future and delighted with the current situation - he is absolutely thrilled they have been able to retain their loyal, knowledgeable and talented staff throughout these tough times. Without these vital manufacturing and construction teams, no greenhouses would be built. Apex directly employ over 30 staff both in NZ and Australia combined and have experienced contractor partners for every type and size of project.

Apex Greenhouses (formerly Faber Greenhouses), has been building greenhouses in New Zealand and Australia for over thirty-five years. Apex are a trusted brand; their greenhouse structures stand the test of time and can be found throughout NZ and Australia. They are a leader in adapting new technology, enabling them to engineer greenhouses to suit the individual needs for all their customers. Investing in new machinery has been a game changer and keeps them at the forefront of high-tech greenhouse construction.
