Nowadays, Netafim Netherlands is an importer/wholesaler and producer of a complete product portfolio containing all sort of irrigation products. Grow more with less.

Netafim, as an irrigation specialist, is involved in various training and research projects in the Netherlands and abroad. In perspective of the end user, quality products and innovative solutions are not sufficient for achieving optimal efficiency. In addition, application knowledge and maintenance are important aspects.

Quality, innovation and knowledge: the three factors of success!
One of Netafim’s specialisms is to manufacture and deliver custom made, assembled dripping systems. To meet the high quality standards, Netafim started their own production of PE-pipe. The production location in Rucphen enables Netafim to maintain heavier standards and test procedures than usual, so produced dripping systems will remain without problems for years, under the most extreme circumstances. Netafim works with countless automatic machines for the assembly of dripping systems and thereby is the largest in the world. Justifiably, Netafim is the global market leader of drip irrigation.
