Passing the one-billion sales mark

One of the most popular truss supports in the world, this month sees ARaymond celebrate passing the one-billion units sales mark for the FlexTruss greenhouse support solution.
With an exponential growth and a record in sales in 2020, ARaymond gradually increased its flextruss production capacity in its recycled version and BIO version during this last years to support market demand.

Labor costs savings

Launched on the global market in 2014, the FlexTruss was created by ARaymond using feedback from our customers in order to ensure that the support meets the requirements of producers worldwide. A value-added solution, installing the FlexTruss units requires no previous experience thereby reducing installation time in the greenhouse whilst simultaneously reducing labor costs for growers thanks to its flexibility and its possible placement in more advanced stages. Additionally, greenhouse tests proved a decrease of over 15% in installation time.

Designed to maximise tomato yield

With smooth rounded edges, the FlexTruss supports are perfectly contoured to ensure there is no risk of the delicate tomato branches breaking during installation thereby maximising the tomato yield per plant. Designed for use within the greenhouse environment, the FlexTruss features an innovative one-size-fits-all design which can be adapted for use with all varieties throughout the growth cycle of the tomato plant.

Patented flexible backbone technology

Robust and resilient, the FlexTruss is made from recycled or BIO material and features ARaymond’s patented backbone design. This allows the support to be installed directly onto the plant’s straight stems whilst adapting to the natural growth pattern of the branches. ARaymond Agriculture I+D team took grower inputs and needs as a must for the design of the flextruss, achieving one of the most flexible, resistant and fastest truss supports on the market.



* First draft of the Flextruss back in 2013 after several meetings with tomato growers. The must was to have a rigid but at the same time flexible solution, this draft evolved to the current design.

Available in a Bio-compostable version

Manufactured in black for maximum UV resistance, the FlexTruss is made from high-quality recycled plastic allowing producers to meet their goals for sustainable development within the greenhouse environment. In order to meet with the ever-growing demand for biodegradable options, ARaymond has also created a Bio-compostable version of the FlexTruss which enables growers and producers to ensure they have the lowest possible impact on the environment.

A global success story for ARaymond

An optimised solution for greenhouse growers and producers, the FlexTruss has enjoyed enormous success since its launch and is now used by ARaymond customers across Europe and beyond. Here at ARaymond we are delighted to reach this latest sales milestone for another of our greenhouse supports and we look forward to the sale of the the next billion units of FlexTruss worldwide.
