Stål og Plast A/S has been manufacturing Ebb & Flow bench trays in high impact polystyrene (HIPS) since 1984.
Today the comprehensive bench tray system is sold through a worldwide network of distributors. Distributors are typically greenhouse construction companies who install the trays as part of a turnkey projects as purchased by nurseries.
Over the years, the bench trays have been thoroughly tested for use with fertilizers, effects of temperature change, UV radiation and general daily wear in a modern greenhouse. This knowledge is used for continuous improvement and to optimize the products, so that today they represent the industry`s absolute best quality.
The bench trays are manufactured on modern automatic vacuum forming machines which are optimized for the production of Ebb & Flow bench tops. The production facilities are operated mainly by robots which are supervised by specially trained personnel with many years of experience.
In 1996 Stål & Plast A/S started its own production of the raw plates which used for the finished bench trays. Production takes place in a modern co-extruding plant which makes it possible to produce raw plates in three layers. This allows for the finished bench tray to be produced exactly to the specifications required by the customers. For example, with an additional UV-protective layer on the upper side of the tray, different colours, etc.
