    On Tuesday December 4th, the Consulate-General of the Kingdom of the Netherlands and the Netherlands Foreign Investment Agency (NFIA) visited the plant of Accuflex in Guelph, Ontario. This visit was to celebrate the collaboration between the Canadian company Accuflex and NCCC Member Canuck from the Netherlands.

    Consul-General Anne Le Guellec and Director NFIA Jaap Slothouwer, along with delegates from Global Affairs Canada and the City of Guelph visited the facility of Accuflex. In the morning the group attended presentations of Canuck and Accuflex about their collaboration and the positive impact CETA has on their cooperation. After enjoying a lunch, Greg Eston of Accuflex and Don Paauwe of Canuck showed guests around the facility and explained the production process.

    Canuck and Accuflex

    Accuflex is a leading edge thermoplastic hose and tubing manufacturer and uses raw materials from the area. Accuflex provides a flushable dual barrier system that protects beverages from cross-tastes and other off-tastes.

    Canuck is the Dutch market leader for dispensing equipment for beverages.

    In Canada, usually the core business is in soda and in Europe the focus is more on beer. The market has changed and new beers make the high quality tubes preferable. Accuflex is delivering its products in Canada and in the US. Canuck is working mostly in Europe and in the Middle East.

    Canuck and Accuflex deliver products of high quality and for the long term. Canuck has the connections and the good reputation in the business and Accuflex provides for the high quality of services and products. The implementation of CETA has facilitated this cooperation.

    Exchanging knowledge and network

    This partnership has been mainly established due to the direct benefits of CETA. The cooperation between Canuck and Accuflex is a true CETA success story.

    Canuck was interested in working with Accuflex as it gave the Dutch company easier access to the to North American market. Accuflex was interested in Canuck as the Dutch business can help the Canadian company to conquer the European market.

    The Netherlands is also used as a gateway to Europe. Both businesses occupy an unique place in the market and benefit from each other and can expand thanks to CETA.

    Accuflex tried to established itself in Europe a few years ago, but with the tariffs and trade barriers of that time, their prices were too high to be competitive on the European market. Now thanks to CETA tariffs and trade barriers are not an issue anymore and Canuck and Accuflex can easily work together and exchange their knowledge and network.

    CETA makes the cost aspect more attractive for the European market. Accuflex is now competitive in Europe and both businesses currently also focus on being more sustainable.

    Accuflex and Canuck have been working together for 20 years but it is only with the introduction of CETA that they decided to intensify their cooperation. For Accuflex it is now easier to compete in the EU market and for Canuck the North American market is easier to access.

    CETA opens new business possibilities

    Both businesses stated that this is just the beginning of their cooperation.

    The fabrication takes place in Canada but in the future they are not excluding the idea of opening another production site in Europe. This is only an example of the possibilities facilitated by CETA. Accuflex and Canuck help with providing more jobs in both countries, more profit and they are both expending in Canada and in Europe.

    Accuflex will help Canuck to gain a stronger foothold in the Canadian market. Canuck will help Accuflex to expand its activities in Europe. Besides, the American market is also more accessible for both businesses as the pieces are made in Europe, assembled in Canada and then shipped to the US. Canuck and Accuflex are working together and expanding into the European, the Canadian and also the American market.

    The companies pointed out that Canadian businesses are less aware of CETA than European companies, probably because of their (main) focus on the US and on the USMCA. That is why sharing this success story is helping raising awareness of the benefits of CETA.

    Bedrijven en instellingen uit de Nederlandse tuinbouwketen onderzoeken de mogelijkheid om een onderzoeks- en demonstratiecentrum te ontwikkelen aan de Dalhousie University in de Canadese provincie Nova Scotia. De universiteit is initiatiefnemer. De Nederlandse ambassade in Ottawa is nauw betrokken bij het tuinbouwcentrum, iHort Hub genaamd.

    De iHort Hub aan de Dalhousie University moet de ontwikkeling in tuinbouwsector in de oostelijke provincies van Canada – New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island en New Foundland & Labrador – een impuls geven.

    De overheden en het georganiseerde tuinbouwbedrijfsleven in deze Canadese regio willen graag de Nederlandse tuinbouwketen bij de opzet van dit centrum betrekken. De betrokken partijen tonen veel waardering voor de technologische en teeltkundige innovaties in de Nederlandse tuinbouw.

    Jan Westra, Priva

    Stevige contacten

    Afgelopen jaren is geprobeerd om een cluster van Nederlandse bedrijven te vormen, met financiële steun vanuit het RVO-programma Partners for International Business (PIB). Opzet was om gezamenlijk actief te worden in Canada. De vorming van het PIB-cluster is uiteindelijk niet gelukt. Wel zijn in die periode stevige contacten gelegd tussen de Canadese en Nederlandse tuinbouwketen.

    NCCC Patron Member Priva, is een van de bedrijven die belangstelling heeft om deel te nemen aan de iHort Hub. Priva is een Nederlands familiebedrijf dat wereldwijd installaties voor klimaat- en procesautomatisering aan glastuinbouwbedrijven levert. Het bedrijf is al dertig jaar actief in Canada. Jan Westra van Priva constateert dat de tuinbouw in Oost-Canada achterloopt op die in andere delen van het land.

    Onderzoek en demonstratie 

    Volgens Westra ligt de focus van het toekomstige tuinbouwcentrum op onderzoek en op demonstratie van succesvolle tuinbouwtechnologieën. Samenwerking tussen Canadese en Nederlandse kennisinstellingen, bedrijven en overheden in de iHort Hub kan volgens hem bijdragen aan de ontwikkeling van de Canadese tuinbouw.

    Priva ziet ook perspectief in het centrum omdat hier onderzoek gedaan gaat worden naar gewasgroei onder koude klimaatomstandigheden. “Resultaten van dat onderzoek kunnen wij wereldwijd vermarkten. Dat geldt ook voor andere betrokken bedrijven.”

    Speler van wereldformaat

    Volgens economisch beleidsadviseur Arie Plieger van de Nederlandse ambassade in Ottawa toont de Canadese tuinbouwketen enorm veel belangstelling voor Nederlandse tuinbouwtechnologie. Hij wijst erop dat afgelopen jaren verschillende delegaties vanuit Canada Nederland hebben bezocht. “De tuinbouw staat hier volop in de belangstelling. Het land wil wat betreft voedselproductie een speler van wereldformaat worden. Voedselveiligheid, circulaire productiemethoden en precisielandbouw staan daarbij hoog op de verlanglijst. Dat zijn precies thema’s waarin de Nederlandse tuinbouwketen vooroploopt.”

    SOESTERBERG, The Netherlands. Newest NCCC member Rainmaker Worldwide, working with its partner, Bredenoord has delivered its innovative MD Water Power unit to Fieldlab Smartbase 1.0 for the Dutch Ministry of Defense.

    The smart base was officially opened by his Majesty King Willem-Alexander, the King of the Netherlands.

    The Dutch military participates in multiple UN missions and has served in Iraq and Afghanistan. It is currently active in a UN peacekeeping mission in Mali to fight local terrorist insurgents. In these missions, it is essential to minimize supply lines and reduce local dependencies to increase troop safety and maximize operational efficiency.

    The MD Water Power Unit – a purpose-built solution to military specifications

    Rainmaker’s core Water-to-Water technology has been successfully combined with Bredenoord’s state-of-the-art military-grade generators in a containerized plug-and-play solution that delivers both clean drinking water and reliable electricity.

    The unit reduces the cost of fresh drinking water, is highly efficient, mobile and ideally suited for areas where there is little or no infrastructure.

    Replacing current reverse osmosis systems

    The ultimate objective is to replace the current reverse osmosis systems with Rainmaker-Bredenoord units. Each unit can provide up to 25,000 liters of pure drinking water and 35 kW of electricity daily under all conditions without any power grid connection.

    This self-contained, low-maintenance solution is designed to be suitable for global military deployments, NGOs and disaster relief situations.

    “A military context puts high demands on product functionality,” said Joost Oosterling, Managing Director, Europe for Rainmaker. “Your innovation must work in the desert at over 40 degrees, or in the freezing cold at minus ten.”

    Army commander Luitenant-Kolonel Erwin Leidelmeijer said, “We offer a robust experimental environment: the innovations must be soldier-proof, so we practice and test them in a static environment at the barracks in Soesterberg. At Smart Base, civil products are tested for military applications, while the military specifications are maintained.”

    Michiel Pols of the Netherlands’ InnovationQuarter said, “The Dutch armed forces have a good reputation abroad. You can count on NATO watching what is happening here. If the Dutch armed forces purchase the innovations, then the gate will open to the rest of the world.”

    Michael O’Connor, President and CEO of Rainmaker Worldwide said, “We are exceptionally pleased to have delivered this innovative application of Rainmaker’s Water-to-Water technology to the Smartbase Project in Amersfoort, Netherlands. We look forward to collaborating closely with the teams at Bredenoord and the Dutch military during the comprehensive testing period.

    We are very encouraged by the early results and confident that new opportunities will follow in the short term to work with both military and relief organizations where fast deployment is necessary in dealing with the effects of catastrophes such as hurricanes, earthquakes and other natural disasters.”
