Dutch and local companies help Aphria to expand with 16 acres

Aphria Inc., one of Canada's medical cannabis leaders located in Leamington, Ontario confirmed their choice of primary vendor/contractors for their Part IV expansion project planned for later this year. 



Thermo Energy Systems Ltd of Leamington, Ontario has been chosen to provide and build the greenhouse structure including highly sophisticated systems to deliver precise internal environmental conditions specifically tailored for cannabis production. The more than 16 acre expansion will be fitted with highly advanced robotics and automation systems designed and provided by AgriNomix LLC of Oberlin, Ohio USA. AgriNomix leveraged its close working relationship with Dutch growing automation experts Bosman Van Zaal, Flier Systems and Indigo Logistics to provide the robotics, automated plant moving systems and cutting-edge tracking and tracing software that goes well beyond Health Canada's regulatory requirements.

Aphria’s extensive plant growth trialing throughout 2016 allowed AgriNomix and Thermo Energy Systems to work in concert with Aphria experts to design the optimal environment for plant growth regimes in a highly automated manner. The facility is expected to utilize robotic planting machines, cutting-edge camera sorting software and specially designed ebb and flood moving grow benches that traverse throughout the different growing environments without human touches. Aphria’s clear intention to be the “high yield - low cost producer” is clearly evident through their choice to apply these progressive growing technologies.
