In 1990 when Dutch bulbs became PQ-free, Hiroshi Nakamura established the corporation Nakamura-Noen.co.,ltd in the same year. Our new challenge started since then.
In the global flower bulb industry, technology and requirement are getting advanced day by day. We first installed cooling storages which are specially designed for flower bulbs, then Recycle plant for crushing plastic cases, Test greenhouse, Warm storage for defrosting service, and Solar power generation system followed.

Design of the greenhouse fit the standard of customers, which is completely different from previous variety test greenhouse, and we try to discover “what the valuable bulbs for our customers are” through the trials.
The new greenhouse will be the place, which customers and we learn together, and also expected to be a good training facility for young forcers in next generation.
Besides, we utilized ICT for high efficiency of work, which created integration of the test growing result in data system, and renew entire website with enhanced variety searching site as well.
