The Netherlands have a leading position within the international greenhouse industry. Successful technologies and growing methods quite often have their origin in The Netherlands.
This makes The Netherlands special. Governments and growers who want to be successful, implement Dutch technologies.
Jan Wijgerse, Senior Business Development Manager at GHBD Holland, has been working with greenhouse technology since 1977. He was actively involved in new developments, such as growing on stonewole substrates and the first heat buffers.
Due to experience and involvement, he developed to a commercial manager who was occupied with developing new markets and implementing existing and new products in various crops during the last decades.
As a result of this, he won the Export Manager of the Year Award 2011, granted by Fenedex Export Select. An award for proven export achievements, judged by a professional jury. Special appreciation was mentioned for the Stepping Stone model. With this model you can scale markets and products. Does the product fit within the present development stage of the grower, then there is a match and a potential for successful business in a specific market.
GHBD Holland and its clients make use of the knowledge, the international network and experience of Jan Wijgerse.
