As head contractor, in collaboration with Havecon and PB tec, VB came up with a total solution that incorporates all modern cultivation solutions, so that tomatoes are available all year round at a short distance from Chicago.
In record time, VB realised the complete climate solution for Les Maraichers du Mont Saint-Michel. It took VB a little over 10 weeks to get that done.
4Evergreen is commited to sustainability in multiple ways. Greenhouses are heated by residual heat from the industry. The cultivation is as CO2-neutral as possible, because of the usage of the residual heat, and CO2 of fertilizer factory Yara.
A sustainable relationship, that goes back for years. As home installer we realized a total of more than 70 ha of identical greenhouses and geothermal heat solutions.

VB is building towards a sustainable future
On Wednesday, March 20th, we symbolically celebrated the commencement of the construction of our new VB building in Westland, Netherlands. Completely in line with our recently presented strategy, the celebration highlighted our commitment to sustainability. Instead of having a traditional groundbreaking event, the children of our employees planted eight large oak trees at the front entrance of the property. With this, we want to give something back to the environment.
VB bouwt letterlijk aan een duurzame toekomst
Woensdag 20 maart hebben wij de bouw van ons nieuwe pand symbolisch gevierd. Geheel in lijn met onze toekomstvisie, hebben wij dit op een leuke en passende manier gedaan. Samen met de kinderen van onze medewerkers hebben geen ‘eerste’ paal geslagen, maar acht grote eiken aan de entreezijde van het perceel geplant. Op deze manier geven we ook iets terug aan de omgeving.
France: realization of complete heating installation by VB for a 17 hectare greenhouse complex
Recently, our partner Havecon completed a 17 hectare greenhouse for the French tomato nursery Le Maraîchers du Mont Saint-Michel (the growers of the Mont Saint-Michel). Le Maraîchers is a unique company, as there is no comparable tomato nursery yet in this touristic region (the Mont Saint-Michel is less than twenty kilometers away from the nursery).
Winter in America but tomatoes are growing!
Even though the temperature is dropping to a low -10 degrees Celsius this month, Intergrow has recently planted tomato plants into their new greenhouse facility in the town of Ontario in the state of New York. With the ability of producing tomatoes year-round out of this new modern greenhouse facility, the company grows a variety of tomatoes to sell to retailers throughout the North Eastern region of the USA.
