About Hortiplan


Hortiplan is the most experienced company when it comes to building hydroponic systems for leafy greens (lettuce, herbs, Asian greens, …). Hortiplan built its first MGS installation in 1994. This installation is still operational. Since then many installations have followed.

At Hortiplan, we do more than supply you with the best possible installation. We are not just a supplier, we are a sparring partner for some of the best lettuce growers in the world. We think along with growers, always trying to be one step ahead with our installations and machines. We have an eye for your business as a whole, not only the growing but also the marketing. We are a source of knowledge. When buying at Hortiplan, you get in touch with a network of specialists.

Every installation is completely tailor made. No installation is identical to another. Hortiplan adapts its MGS concept to every type of greenhouse, every greenhouse dimension, every type of lettuce or herb, every growers’ wishes and needs.

Doing so, we always choose for a robust design of our MGS. We only use high quality materials. Where necessary food quality materials are used. Redundancy is a key word : a MGS should not fail. If a breakdown would uneventually occur, service technicians are standby 24/7. By taking over control of the installation from a distance, our service technicians can help you out with whatever problem or question.

No business remains the same. No market stays the same forever. Preferences of your customers towards a heavier or lighter produce can occur in the future. It is good to know that due to the draw bars used, the plant density can quite easily be changed after the initial installation.

Continuous innovation is an important value for Hortiplan. We are always trying to improve the MGS concept. We know that a grower needs to do more than just growing. As a result Hortiplan has designed and installed further automation regarding planting and harvesting. When you buy at Hortiplan, you are sure of a supplier that can keep up the pace with your business when it sets off.
