CAN (ON): LumiGrow adds Lighting Plus Wholesale to partner network

LumiGrow Inc., a smart horticultural lighting company, has signed a partnership agreement with Lighting Plus Wholesale, an energy auditing, lighting and HVAC solutions provider located in Amherstburg, Ontario, Canada. This new partnership reinforces LumiGrow's commitment to expanding their services and local support to offer growers throughout the Ontario region who are implementing smart horticultural lighting for precision greenhouse management. Lighting Plus is yet another addition to LumiGrow's Ontario-based services, as the company has already deployed plant science research and local customer support across the province.

"We are happy to welcome Lighting Plus Wholesale as a LumiGrow Canada Partner. This partnership ensures that our superior level of technical support can be deployed on short notice. Our local lighting specialists will be able to personally visit and consult with commercial growers in Ontario, and implement turnkey solutions including installation, technical support, and financing services," says LumiGrow VP of Sales and Marketing, Jay Albere.

Lighting Plus Wholesale's team of experienced energy professionals have been providing customers in Essex county and the province with a high quality of customer service and energy efficient products since 1995. "About 75% of our installations are for greenhouses looking for LED lighting solutions, so partnering with LumiGrow felt like a natural progression," says Lighting Plus Founder and Master Electrician, Frank Hunt. "We are big proponents of LEDs and are proud to offer all of the services needed to manage commercial lighting projects from start to finish. The energy savings, rebates, and extended lifetime make them an excellent choice for a range of applications, and LEDs have accelerated past all other light sources leaving HID and fluorescent technology behind. We are thrilled to be able to offer LumiGrow products to our Ontario customers."

The LumiGrow Plant Research Group will continue to work with growers in the Ontario region to develop crop-specific dynamic lighting strategies tailored for specific growth goals and financial objectives. “Our research team is already working with Canadian growers to develop custom lighting strategies for cucumber, tomato, pepper, leafy green, and strawberry cultivation.” says Jay Albere. “The ROI is proven and the crop-benefits are well-known. We’re just expanding our local support to offer a full breadth of sales, infrastructure, and research service so that greenhouse business owners, facility managers, and growers alike have access to LumiGrow lighting resources when their operations most depend on it.
