Who Are Apex Greenhouses
Apex Greenhouses is the brainchild of Directors Folco Faber (former director of Faber Glasshouses) and Eddy Braaksma (former director of greenhouse builder EJ Contractors). Both decided that customers would be better served under a single, collaborative greenhouses manufacturer entity. This brought about the amalgamation of the two specialist companies into Apex Greenhouses.
