Know-how

Mardenkro’s ReduSystems products are global leaders when it comes to regulating greenhouse climate. For many years ReduSystems has been at the forefront of innovation. In 2004 ReduHeat won the Horti Fair Innovation Award.

In 2011 an international expert jury judged ReduFuse to be the most innovative product at the exhibition, so once again we went home with the Innovation Award. We can’t innovate just by ourselves. Together with worldwide leading research centres, universities and growers, we continuously develop new products and test them in practice. Only products with proven added value are included in the ReduSystems family.
