Customers, suppliers and key research partners from as far afield as Turkey and Egypt attended the two-day Bpi. Visqueen conference held to coincide with the completion of a £7m on-site investment project.
Conference attendees were given a tour of the factory and the new machinery, and attended presentations on topics such as management of UV light to control crop diseases, crop yield and quality and plant responses to temperature control via spectral filters.
Commercial director Roy McAdoo said: "Bpi. Visqueen has a commitment to advancing the science and success of horticultural films production which manifests itself in many ways and on many levels.
"In order to offer growers the benefit of technically advanced products, we believe in continually investing into new production technology and into on-going scientific research.
"Staging our own conference allowed us to showcase our latest achievements in both of these areas."
