4 generations of Rutishauser
Family business Rutishauser is known as a leader among pot plant growers in Switzerland. Eduard Rutishauser founded the company in 1912 and now the fourth generation is in charge. The company has production sites in Züberwangen, Fällanden, Neukirch-Egnach and Gordola as well as three ‘Flower Family’ garden centers.
Rutishauser was doing very well for years, until the family had to deal with every entrepreneur’s nightmare in 2013. A fire broke out in the production greenhouse in Züberwangen, burning 80% of the 5-hectare plant nursery. But Rutishauser says it’s not for nothing that they rely on state-of-the-art technology and modern infrastructures, so they engaged us for their new ecofarm. We delivered this phase of the project in 2015.
How do you make the most of a high space? By designing a greenhouse consisting of 2 levels, connected by automatic, fast bench elevators.
The first floor of the system is used for loading and unloading of transports, storage of supplies and the production processes of the plants as well as cultivation space. The second level is used exclusively as cultivation space.
The entire system is controlled using our own control and registration software: Dat-A-Control. The system comes with all necessary modules: the integration of potting, spacing, control of internal transport and irrigation in one system.
