Coating company protects tulip greenhouses with diffuse removable shading agent
The shading season has once again begun for tulip growers in the north of the Netherlands. A few days with beautiful weather have already gone by. There was an abundance of sunshine. That means a few busy weeks for Wessel de Vries from the chalking and cleaning company with the same name. He applies various shading agents, including Sudlac’s diffuse removable paint Optifuse IR.
“One of my customers wanted to start using a new type of removable crop protection paint. Ruben Lensing from Sudlac went to speak with this customer. In cooperation with him, we applied Optifuse IR to the roof. Sudlac installed light meters to be able to demonstrate the difference. That provides insight into the effect for the grower. The customer was very satisfied, and therefore me too,” says Wessel. Wessel appreciates the service provided by Sudlac’s account managers: “Together with Sudlac I am able to maintain a high service level.”
The company Wessel de Vries HDR was founded in 1989. Wessel started off with mechanical brushes and later also started spraying chalk. He has been using Sudlac’s products for some time. Wessel: “The diffuse removable crop protection paints produce greater returns at the beginning. And furthermore, they produce a uniform sprayed surface.”
With three staff, four roof washers and a trailer with a spraying unit that he drives around the greenhouses, Wessel is a familiar face in the head of the Province of Noord-Hollan in the Nettherlands. Over the next three months, he will apply chalk to tulip greenhouses as well as for other flower growers, from his company in Oudesluis, just north of Schagen.
