Our Mission

For too long, inefficient metal structures and unreliable solutions have dominated the greenhouse market. We feel it is our responsibility to bring the greenhouse industry into the 21st century by providing a more economically and environmentally sustainable greenhouse than has ever been available before. By incorporating the newest materials and technologies in renewables, light dep, climate control, and lighting, we strive to develop a product that meets the demands of a constantly evolving industry. It’s our mission to craft and provide a year round hybrid greenhouse solution that decreases energy usage, maximizes production, is environmentally responsible, and sets our growers up for longterm success.
