Havatec BV

It was in the year 2000 that Havatec started with the development of machines for the mushroom sector. Not long after that Havatec developed an advanced machine for the grading and bunching of flower bulbs using X-ray techniques. As from 2003, Havatec has an extensive range of machines for automated grading and bunching of flowers, for packaging flowers in boxes. Since then over 400 machines were internationally installed at numerous leading flower companies. Havatec became the leading supplier for the flower sector, always ahead in technique but ever with the key values in mind that go along with mechanization in agriculture: ‘simple, reliable and affordable’. That is what we call ‘HIGH-TEC SIMPLICITY’. In other words, making use of high performance techniques in combination with the simplicity of a machine that just needs to operate for 16 hours a day without malfunctioning.
