“A customer is always accompanied by Urban Crop Solutions from start to finish, in other words from ‘request to commissioning’. Our growth solutions are of course the heart of every installation, but the need for automation should also be considered by every customer. The capital investment in an indoor farm is important, but as important is the operational cost to run a farm.  Here, automation and robotics are more important than ever. We do this with partners that share the same quality and service standards as we envision” – said Jean-Pierre Coene, CEO of Urban Crop Solutions. Adding that; “Linking with Mayer as being a premium supplier in the horticultural industry completes our offering in the industry even more.” 

The technicians of Urban Crop Solutions will be responsible for the service on the machines of Mayer as well. This aligns with their strategy as an end-to-end solutions provider where clients have one single contact from pre-sale to post commissioning.

With immediate effect, the machines of Mayer will be incorporated into the solutions of Urban Crop Solutions and built into specific projects. Urban Crop Solutions moreover now becomes the sales agent for Mayer in Belgium.
