The demand for sustainable and
customized propagation products has risen in the African continent in recent
years, as has the focus on "NO plastic in nature" and efficiency. With a range
of eco-friendly pots and increased efficiency and flexibility, the Ellepot
propagation system offers nursery growers a great solution and opportunity.
Ellepot has formed a strong partnership with Shaun
Biggs, and have formed Ellepot South Africa.
"Due to the increase in Ellepot customers across the African
continent we needed qualified local support. Shaun shares our passion for
optimizing our customers' business. We're proud to have found such a dedicated partner
to guide and service our customers - helping them to grow smarter." Shaun, a firm believer of sustainable
propagation, also operates Sutherland Seedlings - a pioneer in South African
horticulture with a wide experience supplying seedlings for various segments
such as fruits, nuts, vegetables & forestry.
Offering customers tailor-made Ellepots
About the new partnership CEO Lars Steen Pedersen
explains: "South Africa is a step on the way, to increase the truly global
activities that Ellepot has been introducing in recent years. A global sales and service center in one, Ellepot South Africa is
a one-stop supplier of the
eco-friendly propagation system for nursery growers who want more
control over their production.
"Besides offering a fully integrated propagation
system, we can now supply pre-made Ellepots ready for sticking," says Shaun. "This
allows growers to propagate with a much higher flexibility in their production,
especially with Ellepot's wide certified paper and tray assortment - resulting
in even better plants with higher yields".
With a choice of 18 types of specially developed
Ellepot paper, nursery growers can customize their pots according to crop type.
Customers can even choose their own soil mix for the Ellepot system, making
flexibility in production one of their key competitive advantages.
Ellepot South Africa aims to be the partner of choice
for propagators in the region. With that, comes the responsibility of being
able to provide a fast and reliable service and next-day delivery of spare
parts. "Being local in this global world means everything to our customers,"
says Lars. "Our customers deserve the best, and with Shaun as our partner, we can
service a lot of our main segments even faster and better than before with the
right attention, knowhow and expertise."
