ROI, the basis of every project
As an end-to-end indoor farming solutions provider, Urban Crop Solution carries its clients through the entire indoor farming journey as required by their clients. From indoor biology and research trials at their own research center to business planning, technology and installation and after-sales support and maintenance.
“We have always said that our sales approach is, and will remain, that of an ROI-based one. In that, we want to work with our customers to select the right crops for their market or end application. And ensure that they have a solid and feasible business plan in place prior to proceeding with a sale. We have therefore been working over the years to advance our entire offering” explained company founder and CTO, Maarten Vandecruys.
Urban Crop Solutions continue to diversify and advance its value offering, with several new product updates, commercial partnerships, and the addition of a financing scheme added to its portfolio in the past year.
They have furthermore achieved electrical efficiency with their ModuleX farm, an indicator of high importance in indoor vertical farming. This is alongside collaborations in the biotech and cellular agriculture sphere, a high-profile ModuleX project sale announcement in Saudi Arabia, and ongoing repeat sales and research collaborations at a local level.
