Business Unit Plant Phenotyping, for handsfree and data-driven plant research, bolsters growth for WPS.

Michael Meijler started working as a Business Manager of Plant Phenotyping on July 1, 2022. The market share of WPS in robotics, logistic automation and camera solutions for plant research companies has grown enormously. Meanwhile, WPS is delivering to all leading agriscience companies. A separate business unit was established to realize further growth.

As the Plant Phenotyping Business Manager, Michael Meijler is responsible for realizing the ambition of being the market leader. Michael has gained the right experience after having worked in different technical and managerial positions in the past few years. Michael’s team is strengthened with project managers, contract managers and sales engineers.

Thanks to its digital Phenotyping platforms, WPS contributes to the global food supply. By digitizing plant research, more uniform and reliable data is generated in a completely automated manner which results in faster and more reliable research to be able to develop better crops or crop protection.

WPS is a full-service partner for breeders of both vegetable and horticultural crops, companies specialized in crop protection and scientific research institutes. The expertise in terms of the role as system integrator and project management fits well with the customer requirements.

The above companies can turn to WPS for:

  • System engineering and consultancy where WPS applies the knowledge it gained in the past twenty-five years to help customers find the correct solution.
  • Turnkey project management and system integration.
  • Standalone and manual vision systems and sensors.
  • Realization of fully automated research platforms, also in the form of turnkey supplier. Including the design of climate cells.
  • Service, maintenance and performance management.
