Rich in ideas

Qlipr is developed by Cor Pellikaan. Born and raised in the Westland amongst the greenhouses, he started with an agricultural contractor company in 1985. The tomato- and cucumber cultivation has no secrets to him. Effective and profitable work is the aim of every entrepreneur. And so it became Cor’s mission to develop ways to make the tomato- and cucumber cultivation as efficient as possible. 

The idea of a suspension system arose when Cor was lowering a tomatoplant. It was about to fall down, but he caught it just in time. With the tomatoplant in his hand, he wondered, why wouldn’t one hang the plant on the stem? Rope and clips wouldn’t be needed anymore, and it would make an improvement to several difficult and heavy cultivation operations. The idea of Cor was received enthusiastically by the innovation centre (now called Syntens) and the Applied Scientific Research Institute.  And so it was in 1998, we stood at the birth of the Qlipr clamping system. 

Efficient and lucrative products

Nowadays, the company is grown into a business that focuses on the development and production of innovative products and services for the horticultural sector, to make the cultivation of crops as efficient and lucrative as possible. Products and solutions of high quality, with the values simplicity, sustainable and cost-effective as starting point.
