Ellepot is a system to improve the rooting of young plants. Free choice of substrate provides the grower with the right tool to optimise young plant growth. Hortimec represents Ellepot in many countries. Hortimec offers a special range of products, such as Ellepot paperpot machines, services and consulting for the professional plant propagation Industry. We work with an experienced and dedicated network to deliver personalised service.
Hortimec was founded in 2006 to supply the young plant industry with state-of-the-art technology. We have a wide experience in the young plant industry, which dates back to 1999. Hendrik Mast is a former Ellepot employee with 18 years of experience in the plant propagation business. Many clients around the world have discovered the benefits of the Ellepot system, which Hortimec has integrated into their production lines, such as seeding lines and transplanting lines.
Both Ellepot and Urbinati machines are integrated into the production lines by customers, such as Globeplant, Monsanto, Spisa, etc. Today the young plant industry is challenged by an increased demand for young plants at lower cost. Hortimec combines technology from the Ellepot system, horticulture machinery from Urbinati and tailor-made robot solutions. Complete automised solutions are delivered world-wide.
The main objectives for new young plant technology are higher planting density by step-up transplanting in ellepots, shorter growing cycles, reduced greenhouse growing time and extended young plant stage in germination rooms or propagation units. These objectives result in a higher yield per square meter and lower production costs. We work with the latest technology from Ellepot and Urbinati to provide you with the best of both. Special plant propagation trays and Ellepot paperpot paper are supplied by Hortimec.
