Your future ecosystem

Between Rotterdam and The Hague, you find the greenhouse capital of the world: “Het Westland”. A region that has a great contribution to The Netherlands as food exporter number 2 worldwide, right after the US.

In these 100 square kilometers Priva was founded in the fifties. An innovative second-generation owned family business. Today we are a market-leading company in the Horticultural sector and our ambition is to introduce innovative cloud solutions in accurate greenhouse control, smart (re)use of water, sustainable energy use and efficient labor.

We are proud we emerged from The Netherlands but even prouder that we now operate via 16 international branch offices in over 100 countries worldwide.

Within the Customer Support Center, there is a project group in place to do special projects in addition to the projects performed by our local offices. These projects are situated all over the world. We support, quote, engineer and calculate projects and maybe most important: we make it happen. Most projects are highly innovative and have never been done before.
