March 24, 2015, Lincoln, Ont. – This year marks the 20th anniversary of the collaboration between Alweco Screening Systems from the Netherlands and Westland Greenhouse Equipment & Supplies of Ontario.

Both companies have enjoyed a lot of success due to this collaboration, say company officials.

“In part because of this reason, we have decided to strengthen our relationship by creating a partnership in which knowledge of screening technology and experience in the North American market is shared and used as a basis for further innovations and new applications specific to this market,” say company officials.


“This will result in a better product with better pricing for our customers.”

All North American projects will now on be handled by this new organization. “Every screening project, big or small, needs a tailor made solution that is appropriate for local climate as well as existing greenhouse structures and systems.”

“By gaining more insight into the unique complexity of each project, we can make sure that the right experts of this new organization, from Canada as well as from the Netherlands, are involved in the execution of each screening project. This will result in a perfect screening solution for each and every one of our customers.”

Experienced users of their systems will contribute to the rapid technological developments the partnership will create. These advances, notes a news release, will reduce pricing through easier installation of products or longer maintenance-free use by customers. “Many of these advances have already been incorporated in our screening systems.”

The main purpose of this closer collaboration between Alweco and Westland is to innovate and improve tailor-made screening solutions for North American greenhouse growers.
