30 October 2012 – 2 November 2012

Ridder Drive Systems and HortiMaX Growing Solutions will be exhibiting jointly at this year’s edition of the Horti Fair (30 October 2012 – 2 November 2012). Our ambition is to reinforce our position as Greenhouse Systems Integrator, which is why we invest above the industry average in our product and services portfolio. Read on to find out what we have in store for you at the Horti Fair 2012.

HortiMaX CX500: nominated for the Innovation Award 2012
The use of ‘Dutch’ horticultural technology frequently proves unsuccessful abroad, because the technology is not suitable for the climate conditions present, or the knowledge level or culture of the user. Every country and climate has its own optimum solution. The HortiMaX CX500 was designed on this basis. It is the standard in adaptive greenhouse technology: The system is adaptable, expandable, easy to use and can grow along with the knowledge and experience of the grower. The Horti Fair jury have nominated the HortiMaX CX500 for the Innovation Award 2012.

New and improved irrigation equipment
The regulations concerning food safety and the availability of clean water are becoming increasingly stringent throughout the world. This year, we updated our Aqua CX300 irrigation computer and FertiMiX CX300 fertigation unit. Thanks to their flexible design, they are suitable for many indoor or outdoor growing environments. These are feasible and affordable solutions for growers worldwide, wanting to start out with a basic fertigation system.

Ridder Support Server Online
During the Horti Fair, we will be giving extensive demonstrations of the updated Ridder Support Server. This update has made testing drive systems for suitability even more reliable. The Ridder Support Server now includes 2D and 3D drawings and much more additional information. So why not visit our stand and register yourself as a user?

Updated catalogues
Although it took us some time to update them, we are pleased to announce that Ridder’s new catalogues are now available. The catalogues feature an improved layout for easier reference. They will be available at the Horti Fair in the following languages: Dutch, English, Spanish, German and French. The Russian version should be completed soon. In addition to paper versions, the catalogues are available in a digital format. Please feel free to contact us for copies or download them from the Ridder Support Server.
