About Maarel Orchids:

The orchid – in all its beautiful appearances – has been at the heart of the company of Arno and José van der Maarel since 1997.
Due to their exceptional dedication, and that of their co-workers, Maarel Orchids has attained a top position over the past few years and is currently leading in the cultivation of the potted Phalaenopsis.
Attention to quality, a good eye for special variations, professionalism, but mostly a personal way of doing business, made this company a market leader. The continuity of Maarel Orchids is firmly rooted in four important basic values, the 4 C’s.

The project:

Highlights of the automated benching system:

  • Two Automated Transport Carts, both of them specified with a double lifting platform;
  • One Overhead Crane for the management of empty benches
  • One Overhead Crane for movements of full rolling benches
  • Four 3D Overhead Cranes;
  • several A-track automated transport lines.

Type of rolling benches:

  • Rolling benches with expanded mesh inlays;
  • Rolling benches with planstic ebb and flood inlays


The entire rolling bench system is controlled using our industry leading control and registration software Dat-A-Control.

Besides the control of benches and machines, Dat-A-Control also gives the grower full access to the registration database for plant movements and undergone production processes, making the management of the nursery more efficient.
