Gar­ten­bau Stril­lin­ger reli­es on first-class pro­ject com­pe­tence and ser­vices from SANSOL.
The Tyro­lean com­pa­ny “Gar­ten­bau Stril­lin­ger” has been pro­du­cing pot­ted and cut herbs in orga­nic far­ming for three gene­ra­ti­ons and is con­stant­ly expan­ding its pro­duc­tion volu­me. Due to the excel­lent geo­gra­phi­cal loca­ti­on with the ide­al frame­work con­di­ti­ons, year-round ope­ra­ti­on in pla­s­tic green­hou­ses is pos­si­ble. The limi­t­ed spa­ti­al expan­si­on opti­ons at the loca­ti­on in the Tyro­lean Unter­land moti­va­ted the owner Micha­el Stil­lin­ger to deve­lop a for­ward-loo­king opti­miza­ti­on of pro­duc­tion on the exis­ting pre­mi­ses. In order to ensu­re healt­hy entre­pre­neu­ri­al growth, the entre­pre­neur deci­ded to work clo­se­ly with SANSOL.

Jen­ners­dorf, August 8th, 2019 — The tra­di­tio­nal fami­ly busi­ness “Gar­ten­bau Stril­lin­ger” has spe­cia­li­zed in the orga­nic cultivation of high-qua­li­ty pot­ted herbs. His cus­to­mers are pri­ma­ri­ly the Aus­tri­an food retail trade, which pays atten­ti­on to qua­li­ty, strict com­pli­ance with orga­nic gui­de­lines and requi­res good value for money. In order to be able to meet the­se requi­re­ments, the fami­ly busi­ness must plan effi­ci­ent­ly and take fac­tors that increase com­ple­xi­ty into account. Short-term cus­to­mer chan­ge requests requi­re a high degree of fle­xi­bi­li­ty and adap­ta­bi­li­ty. The pro­duc­tion and logi­stics solu­ti­on must gua­ran­tee that the deli­very pro­cess runs smooth­ly and that plants suf­fer as litt­le dama­ge as pos­si­ble. Sin­ce the use of pesti­ci­des in orga­nic far­ming is strict­ly regu­la­ted, the pro­duc­tion pro­ces­ses from the seed­ling or cut­ting to the rea­dy-to-deli­ver pot­ted plant must be con­stant­ly opti­mi­zed. The suc­cess pro­ves the com­pa­ny right and fur­ther expan­si­on is a posi­ti­ve addi­tio­nal chall­enge. In order to mas­ter the­se chal­lenges suc­cessful­ly, the owner Micha­el Stril­lin­ger brought the pro­ject and tech­no­lo­gy exper­ti­se of SANSOL on board.

A spe­ci­fic pro­ject was the opti­miza­ti­on of cut­tings pro­duc­tion at the site. With the FLEX-PRO series, which was deve­lo­ped in the SAN­light labo­ra­to­ry and has been used seve­ral times, a light source was instal­led that is spe­ci­al­ly tail­o­red to the needs of roo­ting cut­tings in ver­ti­cal cultivation. A broad spec­trum redu­ces the roo­ting time and ensu­res strong young plants for sub­se­quent pro­duc­tion in the green­house. In order to achie­ve opti­mal results, the sys­tem was instal­led in an encap­su­la­ted ver­ti­cal farm, which ensu­res opti­mal coor­di­na­ti­on of the micro­cli­ma­te with the expo­sure sys­tem. The sel­ec­ted light emis­si­on ensu­res a high degree of uni­for­mi­ty of light dis­tri­bu­ti­on in the working level with a com­pact storey height. The distance bet­ween the glow sticks is maxi­mi­zed. The result is a uni­form growth of the cut­tings in the five flo­ors and in the growth room. The products used are opti­mal­ly sui­ted to the high humi­di­ty and increased ambi­ent tem­pe­ra­tu­re. through the narrow

“Gar­ten­bau Stril­lin­ger” achie­ves a mar­ket advan­ta­ge in coope­ra­ti­on with SANSOL. Not only does the com­pa­ny increase the qua­li­ty of its products and streng­then the young plants. Now, with redu­ced ope­ra­ting cos­ts, the com­pa­ny can also demons­tra­te grea­ter fle­xi­bi­li­ty in the event of short-term chan­ges in cus­to­mer purcha­sing beha­vi­or and opti­mi­ze the pro­duct ran­ge. And the expan­si­on of the pro­duc­tion area goes into the third dimen­si­on — upwards. “Gar­ten­bau Stril­lin­ger” is up to the chal­lenges of the future. Becau­se the part­ner­ship with SANSOL enables a tech­no­lo­gi­cal­ly flaw­less over­all solu­ti­on that opti­mal­ly adapts to chan­ging needs and frame­work conditions.
