The driving force behind a process of continuous improvement and further development of our products and processes.
Product Improvement | All our products meet the highest requirements in terms of quality and durability. However, that does not mean that products cannot be improved. We continuously strive to further develop and improve our products.
Product Support | No matter how well a project is prepared, unforeseen circumstances can arise during construction. With our many years of experience, we won’t wiggle out of our commitment to you. Issues or even entire projects that deserve a little extra attention get ours too. With us you will get our full attention and support.
Business Development | Continued development of existing products is essential, but Business Development certainly also focuses on developing new methods and standards. Making visualized quotes using 3D animation is a good example of this.
The future project is brought to life step by step by means of 3D visualizations, views and film. All aspects, such as external views, but also all equipment and installations used in the greenhouse, such as insect mesh, screening, cultivation gutters, heating, water and lightning can be highlighted. You can get a complete view of the project from inside and out. In this way, our commercial team can go through everything in detail with customers and adjust it where necessary. A wonderful process, assisted by a large dose of team spirit.
Our Research & Business development department plays a crucial role searching for suitable plots, applying for permits and ensuring the correct utility connections are available. We complete feasibility studies to substantiated investment opportunities. Havecon is an ideal party for this task, because we can completely unburden you from A to Z. We will expand these steps more and more in the future. Another important part of the process are 3D visualizations, which we can also provide in full. When location and dimensions of the project has been determined and cultivation and other important factors are known, our engineers will start working on creating a lifelike animation of the project. Even the future location and surroundings of the project can be visualized through Google Maps.
We are increasingly seeing new parties, mostly investors, entering the agricultural world. In most cases without green thumbs or experience, but with a clear business plan for a cultivation facility that usually consists of several phases and must be suitable for multiple cultivation purposes. At Havecon, we have responded to this in recent years by devising an alternative "commercial" model rather than simply requesting the wishes and requirements and drawing up an offer.
