US (IL): Innovative Growers Equipment tours production facility

"We wanted to showcase our metal working facility where we produce Growtainers®, vertical racks for horticulture and other industries, greenhouse benches, LED lighting, Staal & Plast trays, and other products for CEA growers, investors, schools, and universities," says Glenn Behrman, Founder and CEO of Growtainers.

About 90 minutes from the Indoor Ag Tech location in Chicago, a tour was held in the 300,000 sq. ft. Innovative Growers Equipment facility (IGE) in Sycamore, Illinois last Wednesday. 40+ US- and overseas-based based joined the group of companies to see the latest innovations at IGE's warehouse.

CEA Advisors, Innovative Growers Equipment & Hydrofarm work together on marketing, manufacturing, new product development, business development, and innovation within the food, non-food and CEA sectors. The organizers said that the crowd was extremely engaged, taking pictures, asking questions and enjoying the presentations.

"Growtainers became a Hydrofarm brand approximately one year ago to capitalize on the opportunities available as a division of a publicly traded company in horticulture. While Growtainers has a long-term provider of custom container farms, the relationship with IGE and Hydrofarm has allowed us to expand into affordable Entry Level Container Farms for beginning farmers," Glenn adds.
