40 Years of Experience Across 6 Continents

40 Years of Experience

We are a 40-year old Canadian, family-run business with 35 years of experience in the design and manufacturing of automatic retractable roof houses. We’ve built up substantial experience through research and by partnering on projects across 6 continents in the fruit, berry, vegetable, flower and reforestation sectors..

Our Approach

When our customers approach us looking for a solution to their production problems, or they want to exploit new opportunities in the marketplace, we analyze the following items to develop a solution using the retractable roof production system :

  • advantages and challenges of the current production system
  • market prices for the produce per month
  • our customers desire supply large buyers consistently throughout the year or to supply the open market
  • general weather constraints and major climate risks
  • costs of production
  • the level of technology that can be managed by the staff

We will then follow the 6 steps to determining the best Retractable Roof house solution. The process concludes with an ROI analysis where the retractable roof production system is compared to other production systems.

Our Continued Focus on Research & Learning

We invest in our own R&D facilities in mild and hot climates to develop optimum crop management protocols using the automated roof and walls. We are constantly expanding the crops we are growing inside retractable roof cooling houses and greenhouses to help our partners reach even higher levels of profitability.
