Over VDE Plant:

 VDE plant is a real family business located in the beautiful countryside just outside the Dutch town of Woubrugge.
‘VDE’ stands for ‘Van Der Eijk’, the family name of the company’s founders.
Today, the third generation is running the business: brother and sister Karin and Edwin van der Eijk together with their partner, Hein Visser.
Ever since 1948, the team at VDE has been committed to growing the most beautiful tropical houseplants for consumers.

  • Three Overhead Crane for the management of empty benches
  • One Overhead Crane for movements of full rolling benches
  • One rolling bench Lift
  • two 100 Degree Bench Cleaners
  • several A-track automated transport lines.

Type of rolling benches: with aluminium ebb and flood

Software

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.

After Sales Services

Logiqs has its own experienced installation and service team based in the Netherlands, but also collaborates with reliable service engineer teams in several countries so as to prevent unnecessary installation or maintenance costs.

Our customers can always rely on prompt and efficient attention for routine maintenance, breakdown or emergency situations.

Routine preventative maintenance can be tailored to the customer’s choice, with service intervals to suit the specific needs of the logistical system.
