About Nongqing Gardening
Nongqing Gardening was founded in 2005 in Shanghai. They’ve built several production bases in Beijing, Hainan and Hubei. In 2010 Beijing Nongqing Gardening Co., Ltd. started to grow bromelia as their main plants. The base in Tongzhou District Beijing, with an area of 40.000m2, has a greenhouse with double layer inflatable film heating structure. The yearly production is over 500.000 plants which flow into the Chinese market. The company focuses on quality and innovation. Therefore, they were searching for a high technology system to realize higher quality and lower production costs.
Nongqing Gardening was facing an increase in labor costs, such as other Chinese greenhouse companies. Using an automation system to manage production processes and reduce production investment that ensure the quality of plants is what Nongqing has been searching for. Nongqing Gardening has experience with the use of other automation systems. However, providing growers with basic training in how to get the most of their system is what they had been searching for and have found in the Hoogendoorn system.

We definitely recommend Hoogendoorn to other growers.”
