More call for storage solutions leads to expansion


CROP Systems Limited, which moved into its new factory at Happisburgh, Norfolk just two years ago, is expanding its team and factory operations, having seen major business growth.

The designer and installer of box and bulk potato stores has just appointed a new sales manager and is seeing a surge of interest in products like the SmartStor controller and CoolStor glycol fridges.

SmartStor enables storeowners to monitor and manage their stores remotely, and now includes a function that helps users plan sprouting suppression application sequences for DMN, mint oil and ethylene, while the CoolStor glycol fridges require much less coolant than conventional models according to Managing Director Ray Andrews.

The company has just appointed Tony Barnes as sales manager. 

Ray said: "Tony comes to us with over 35 years’ experience with a selection of leading companies in the potato sector. We look forward to seeing his experience and enthusiasm adding a fresh spark to our growth, and him becoming an important part of our dedicated, professional team.”

The move to the new factory in 2019 enabled Crop Systems Limited to bring all main manufacturing processes back in house, including construction of fridges and louvres.
