Bloemteknik (t/a Bloem), a provider of customized horticultural lighting solutions, entered a strategic partnership with Ecopromt, a vertical farm designer and constructor. Together, the two companies will collaborate to offer tailored lighting solutions for vertical farm operators worldwide.

Lighting plays a pivotal role in the success of vertical farming. Through this partnership, Bloem and Ecopromt will leverage their respective expertise to provide vertical farmers with customized lighting, tailored to their unique objectives, crop requirements, and infrastructure.

"Our partnership with Ecopromt marks a significant milestone in our commitment to advancing controlled environment agriculture through innovative lighting solutions," said James Fleet, Co-Founder and CEO of Bloem. "By combining our expertise in horticultural lighting with Ecopromt's design & build innovation, we aim to empower vertical farm operators with the tools they need to enhance crop quality and increase yields, whilst optimizing cost-of-ownership."

Ecopromt's CEO, Anders Wennerb├Ąck, echoed these sentiments, stating, "We are thrilled to partner with Bloem to bring customized lighting solutions to the vertical farming industry.
