  • Fruit ripening, a process monitored and controlled entirely by VDH Products

    Fruit ripening, a process monitored and controlled entirely by VDH Products

    Ripening tropical fruit is a very carefully controlled process in which the temperature, humidity, ventilation, gas mix etc. are regulated very precisely. Ripening control systems from VDH Products monitor and control the entire ripening process, from the moment that the unripe fruits arrive in the ripening rooms until they have ripened and can leave the ripening company again. This is a field where extreme precision is required in the control of temperature, air humidity, ventilation and gas admixture. Read more

  • Important notification for VASP users!

    Important notification for VASP users!

    Some users of HP computers report having a Blue Screen Of Death after installing the cumulative patch for the Windows 10 October 2018 Update. The cause seems to be an incompatible HP driver. It seems to be mainly HP systems, such as EliteDesk and ProDesk computers, although the Microsoft helpdesk also reports that other manufacturers are also experiencing problems. The problems arose after the release of the cumulative KB4464330 update that Microsoft released on Tuesday October 10, 2018. The cause of the BSODs can be traced back to an HP keyboard driver.

  • The importance of corporate social responsibility

    The importance of corporate social responsibility

    José Marinus is HR manager at VDH PRODUCTS and knows like no other the importance of emphasising the positive aspects of an individual. ‘The government sometimes imposes or sets limitations that do not reflect reality. In the almost 23 years that I have been working at VDH it has become clear to me that it is not what someone can’t do well or not at all that matters but rather emphasising what someone is good at through a positive attitude or investment in courses. And that automatically results in higher productivity and even perhaps better turnover.’ Read more
