Svensson: high-tech greenhouse horticulture in China in full development

Gloria Zhang of climate screen supplier Svensson

Chinese greenhouse horticulture is evolving at a rapid pace. And in the years to come, it shows the possibilities of speeding up, even more, expects Gloria Zhang of climate screen supplier Svensson. But there are also challenges to overcome: among others, the high energy prices and the moderate horticultural expertise level. Gloria is confident that “the collaboration with Dutch Greenhouse Delta and the PIB China will help to present Svensson’s value in the market and working together with all the members allows us to provide a total solution of the value chain to growers in this country.”

Climate Screen supplier Svensson has been active in the Chinese market for many years. In fact, the company of Swedish origin has had its own production facility in Shanghai for some twenty years. “Here, we produce not only a wide range of climate screens, but also insect nets, for the Chinese market, but also for other countries in the world,” says Gloria Zhang. She has been a General Manager at Svensson China since 2014. Although she had been working for many other business fields and had worked many years for a Fortune top 500 company before, she now feels completely at home in the sector with her current role. “I studied Mechanical Engineering and later I also took an MBA course,” Gloria tells us. “Seven years ago, I got a chance to work for Svensson and I feel proud of joining it.”
