in Southern Africa
Richel is the No.1 manufacturer of polyethylene clad greenhouses in Europe, with exports to more than 80 countries worldwide. Manufacturing capacity is more than 50,000 sqm of multispan greenhouses per week, and total projects are 300 hectares per annum.
Richel has been exporting greenhouses to Africa for more than 20 years, with over 600 hectares of greenhouses present in many countries, including South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Zambia and Mozambique.
Richel greenhouses are well known in the South African greenhouse industry as the best quality available, and once a grower has bought one he never looks at anything else again. The complete greenhouse, with all components imported directly from Richel, is delivered in sealed containers to the clients' premises, thereby ensuring all components are available immediately for construction.
A number of models and configurations are available, depending on the climate, crop and budget of the grower. Greener Solutions carries a range of essential spares for models in use in our market area.
Richel is the leading innovator in terms of new greenhouse design trends and was responsible for bringing to the market the first 12.80 m wide bay some years back. In 2015 Richel have released the largest bay width in the world with a new model available with16.00 m wide bays - without a trellis beam! This results in the largest volume and height possible, and growers can experience improved climate stability as a result of this.
Other innovations include the 90 mm ovalised tube arch profile as well as greenhouse posts, both in high tensile steel for extra strength, double inflated film and additional special polymeric corrosion protection over the sendzimir galvanising.
In southern Africa, the top producers in most of the production areas insist on Richel greenhouses only.
Greenhouse products manufactured by Richel include:
- Turnkey projects including additional production equipment like heating, cooling, screening, irrigation and climate control systems
- Infrastructure for environmental solutions like photovoltaic greenhouses and solar energy installations
