In the coming years, many growers will be adding LED grow light to their existing HPS grow light systems, creating hybrid grow light systems. There are a wide range of reasons for beginning to use a hybrid grow light system. They are often related to new cultivation and production goals, or to the possibilities and limitations that the greenhouse presents (for example higher energy costs and/or limited energy capacity).
LED is hot and definitely no longer a thing of the future. This has become evident from, among other things, a survey by Hortilux among growers. Interest levels in LED appears to be very, very high. At the same time, some questions and challenges remain, too.
On February 15, 2021, the Hortilux sales team will be expanded with two new account managers: Mitchel Visser will start as Area Sales Manager BeNeLux and Juriën Koster as Area Sales Manager Medical Cannabis. Hortilux is very much looking forward to their arrival, which will further strengthen its international ambitions as a knowledge partner and supplier of high-tech LED, HPS and hybrid grow light solutions.
We will soon be launching two brand new HORTILED Top fixtures. These LED fixtures are excellent for use in new construction projects and as a replacement for HPS fixtures in existing greenhouses. They are particularly suitable for 1-on-1 replacement of 1000w and 600w HPS fixtures, without modifications to your existing installation.
PCF Greenhouse Technologies - Russia's leading company for the design, construction and engineering support of greenhouse complexes - is implementing a number of greenhouse complex construction projects in Russia in 2020. According to General Director Vladimir Tsanava, it is very important for the company to have a reliable supplier of lighting equipment, especially during the global COVID-19 pandemic.
On 1 November 2020, Harm Ammerlaan will start as the new commercial director at Hortilux. As sales manager at BASF Vegetable Seeds and prior to that as general manager of LetsGrow.com, Ammerlaan built up a wealth of experience and a broad network in international horticulture. Hortilux is therefore really looking forward to his arrival.
