Austin, Texas – March 17, 2016- Illumitex is expanding its LED lighting services to six international countries in the vertical farming industry. Among the international vertical farms Illumitex is currently working with are Remy located in Israel, Asahi Techno in Japan, Agricool in France and aquaponic startups in Norway and Italy.
Illumitex’s involvement with the Association for Vertical Farming, educational events, international conference participation, and public speaking events have allowed the company to create international relationships and build a strong reputation in the horticultural field. The company’s team of horticultural specialists, biologists, veteran growers and solutions provided continue to help set Illumitex apart from competitors.
“New vertical farming growers are choosing Illumitex but we are also converting existing vertical farms to Illumitex LED lights who were using other competitors’ lights. We provide support on engineering, the growing process and installations without disrupting the customer’s grow,” said Paul Hardej, Horticulture Sales Manager for Vertical Farm/Turn-Key Solutions.
Hardej is the co-founder of FarmedHere, the first commercial scale urban aquaponic vertical farm located outside of Chicago, IL. Almost two decades of experience with architecture and construction allows him to offer advice to clients about lighting in vertical farms including design layouts, building code regulations, etc.
“I’m a grower, I’ve designed many successful vertical farms. My experience at FarmedHere and throughout my career makes it easier for me to communicate and better understand the needs of the vertical farm growers. I also know that lighting is the most important and expensive part of a vertical farm but here at Illumitex, we go well beyond just the lights.”
