We design and develop innovations that lead to growth
We realize high-tech automatization concepts for Enterprises aimed to grow. We also know a thing or two about robotics, engineering & design.
We proudly present The Herb Brothers
They harmoniously empty the transport tray, sleeve the potted herbs and fill the packing tray. Each one has a unit of 2 sleeve storage compartments, the sleeve storage and funnel are adjustable for the right sleeve length.
Meet the Dynamic Duo
At Bunnik Vriesia's, Crea-tech employed two of the finest pick & place robots out there. Built with strength and endurance, Bromelia & Guzmania handle anything that comes their way.
Bolt - the fastest machine alive
Some say and believe, ‘’there is a reason for everything’’. We believe it when we see it and especially when we get to manufacture it. This is exactly what happened when we created Bolt.
He got his name due to his speed, and because he is handling hydro cloth.
Bolt is built on a skid frame, which in this case, placed next to our customers box machine.
The purpose why he has a reason to go up in the morning, is to fully automatically place a hydro cloth on top of the herbs inside the boxes they are packed in. When the box machine is slower, he will automatically move slower. When he notices that the box machine moves faster, he will speed up.
The relationship between Bolt and the box machine, was love at first sight.

How it all started
Cees van der Laan needed to find a suitable job to take care of his family of 17. While that was a job in itself, Cees found himself starting an Air Swing business at the local fair. Little did he know, this would give way to the start of something much bigger than swings.
Shortly after, Cees was the owner of three additional Air Swings which also needed proper trucks to transport them from town to town. Paul, one of Cees’s nine sons, was driving one of these trucks at night. At day he would seek out new rides at fairs all around the country. Occasionally, one of the old trucks would break down but before sending it to the garage, Paul would always take a look at it first to see if he could fix it.
Paul developed a technical know-how by taking everything apart and trying to locate the problem. He would drive to Eindhoven to the Dutch Truck Factory (DAF) to gain knowledge in where to look and how to fix any issues he came across. Paul always said, “If you don’t try, you can’t fix anything!”
Paul took an opportunity to work in the UK mounting central heating in Greenhouses throughout the UK and USA. Later love, marriage and children made him want to stay in Holland more.
In Horticulture he noticed growers were beginning to change to more industrial pot plant factories, yet most were still working with traditional nursery equipment.
Paul saw this gap as an opportunity to launch CreaTech in 1998. After relocating back to Holland, Paul started his mission to create more control over the production process aiming towards less maintenance, increased innovation and industrial automation. Fast-forward to today, CreaTech has grown to be a leading innovator in the Horticulture industry. Customers have become partners by sharing ideas and creating new solutions together.
Sponsoring Cancer Research
What an interesting and impressive visit in the Antoni van Leeuwenhoek hospital !!
Let's start at the beginning, Paul van der Salm (a client of ours) supported his friend who died too soon, Mr. Ronald Moerings, who set up his own foundation to contribute the cancer research at the Antoni van Leeuwenhoek hospital.
With a very solid set up, starting with a bank account directly at the hospital, so that there is not a penny wasted, secondly all companies who participate, were also asked to find a new sponsor in their own customer/supplier area, and in this way create a snowball effect, and we (Henk and Annemarie Peek, Paul and Jose van der Laan) went to hospital on Friday, and we were warmly welcomed, and after everyone was gathered while enjoying a cup of coffee, the tour could start with the theme: prostheses in the face after tumour(s) have been removed surgically.
First of all, we got a nice explanation of the use of 3D printers to be able to produce accessories that serve as a connection (for example in the jaw) and so to make it really functional with real bone (from the fibula). Then we went to the face prosthesis department which was very impressive, it sounds scary but if you're in the boat you only want one thing, and that is survive, even if it is without, nose, eye or ear !! And there they make beautiful prostheses that almost cannot distinguish from real! and they give these patients a liveable life again.
Createch is proud that we could contribute to this !!
The financial facts of 2018 are:
We together as companies group have € 110,483.50 !!
The friends of cyclists have raised € 22.000, - !!
Now we are looking for a company that wants to participate in the following year!
What clients say about us
Effective and timely feedback is a critical component of a successful collaboration.
CreaTech is important for the horticulture, as there are only a few companies prepared to take on new technical developments within our branch. CreaTech has become an important discussion partner for Spisa in improving technical solutions and productivity. The future winners are the companies that will embrace new developments in a focused manor to increase yield and reduce man hours. For us is CreaTech a partner in this evolution.
Thanks to the Crea-Tech system, we can now expand our company by 70%. The number of sortings has gone from two to 10 and the capacity has almost doubled. In addition, the system works virtually unmanned, which allows me to produce industrially while my employees can do more meaningful work. Crea-Tech proves to be a pioneer in innovative solutions, delivers advanced techniques of high quality that are save, easy to operate and future-proof.
As one of the world's biggest Lavender nurseries, we always need to act in the frontline and therefore innovation became a second nature. This aim for continuous improvement brought us seven years ago to Crea-Tech International. When we have a technical challenge, we contact Crea-Tech and share our ideas. We love the industrial quality and prompt service and the unique strength of Crea-Tech International is that they always deliver creative solutions.
