Observant, attentive and compact
Today, Cultilene holds a major position in global horticulture. It is based on our wide experience and, of course, directly linked to our factories, offices and representatives spread out across the world.
Our strong position does not keep us from staying alert, attentive and compact. We’re proud of our short lines. We respond rapidly to every new market development as well as to individual inquiries. Our entire organisation is focused on serving growers. We never let an innovation possibility slip by.
Through it all, we’re also intent on always being practical: every initiative, idea or plan is dealt with on the basis of a single, simple question: ‘What’s in it for the grower?’
In close consultation with our clients, we develop products that help growers manage and/or improve their cultivation processes.
It’s no coincidence that much of what we do is tailored to specific circumstances, needs and wishes.
