Belgian hobby greenhouse builder looking for partners
13/12/2016ACD doesn’t just deliver products through their dealer network. It’s the corporate responsibility to train and educate both the resellers, not only in the field of greenhouses, also in growing and cultivating. To share their knowledge and to provide all accessories to enable them to cultivate their own ‘nature treasures’ all year long. ACD works with several concepts: from exhibition models to greenhouse shop-in-shop: four season concept in the store, every season has its own cross selling greenhouse products. Besides the products, ACD sells a certain know-how.
Consumers constantly search for ways, to improve their eating habits, to escape daily stress… The domestic gardening business is the solution for that growing awareness regarding the environment, food origin and food health among consumers. Home grown vegetables not only taste better, it is also a symbol for a new lifestyle!
Listen, learn, adapt
ACD spends lots of time and energy in continuous research & development, adapting to the actual and future market needs and expectations. Apart from growing, these aluminum and safety glass constructions can also be used for storage , protection and outdoor living.
Therefore ACD created ‘garden rooms’. A logic answer to the following trends:
- A strong evolution from purely functional towards esthetical value: the idea of sitting outside and enjoy the garden even when it gets colder is something people find important.
- With the decreasing available surface, this is the ideal way to create an extra room to live in.
The Develtere family started building greenhouses in 1986 and a year later, the company ‘ACD’ was born. From that moment on ACD strongly believed in the domestic cultivation of healthy vegetables.
In a country like Belgium, with lots of rain and cold temperatures but somehow sunny, the ACD greenhouse, the key-product, was born: a solid aluminum construction with safety glass panels.
During the past 25 years ACD evolved from a modest player towards market leadership in Benelux and France in the field of the glass greenhouses for domestic use. Even though ACD sells many other concepts and products these days, the glass greenhouse is still one of the key products.
ACD managed to build a strong brand name as specialist of unique hobby greenhouses and orangeries of top quality for home gardening, as well as for related products for the home and vegetable garden. Thanks to focused specialization, skilled workforce and the expert craftsmanship of a dynamic staff, ACD has grown to become market leader in homeland Belgium and in France. Today ACD moves its top-selling brand name forward the highest standard of excellence on the international market.
