A builder of vertical greenhouse growing equipment has inked a deal with a Canadian distributor.
Las Vegas-based Indoor Farms of America signed an agreement with Greenhouses Canada to supply vertical greenhouse equipment in several Canadian provinces, according to a news release.
Indoor Farms of America’s GrowTrucks line of high-yield aeroponic growing equipment is designed to fit into a variety of spaces, including existing greenhouses, warehouse farms and container farms.
Joining forces with Indoor Farms of America will allow more Canadians to have access to locally-grown produce, Jeff Scharf, Greenhouses Canada’s president, said in the release.
“Our research shows there is no other equipment available that brings the positive economics to indoor growing in our cold regions like this does.”
Indoor Farms of America provides a cost-effective alternative to other forms of greenhouse agriculture, David Martin, the company’s CEO, said in the release.
“There is a huge amount of activity in indoor farming worldwide now. The harsh reality is that many projects won’t survive due to capital costs that are simply too high related to perceived financial performance. Our equipment was specifically designed to eliminate those harsh economics, and provide real ROI in a timely manner.”
