High and increasing labour costs have led to the widespread automation of many of the jobs previously dependent on manual labour. Automation can reduce labour costs by 75%. CMW parent company Bosman Van Zaal, has more than 50 years of experience in the design and installation of labour-saving internal transport and handling systems, always custom made to match the needs of the grower and the crop. CMW design and install both fully automated or semi-automated transport systems that allow for maximum flexibility and maximum space utilisation in almost any greenhouse, old or new. Multi-layer systems are growing in popularity and improving space utilisation even further. In automation and robotisation of harvesting and processing activities, we make use of the expertise of the Bosman Van Zaal group.
To stay ahead of commercial pressures and remain profitable, growers always strive to reduce production costs while maintaining production quality. That usually means investing in the right equipment for the job. CMW source the most cost effective equipment from all parts of Europe to supply the best package to their customers. We sell a very wide range of crop working equipment and crop handling equipment from simple harvesting knives and secateurs to sophisticated internal transport systems. From cucumbers to tomatoes and sweet peppers, from cut flowers to pot plants.
