KUBO is the world specialist in the field of innovative and sustainable greenhouse projects. With (semi-closed) greenhouses and Smart Growing Concepts we create the ultimate indoor climate that uses the least possible energy and water for optimal growing. Our vision is to really want to make a difference for people and for our planet. We do this together with 150 employees who are active in the office, at our own production facility in the Netherlands and at construction sites worldwide.
