When Pleasant View Gardens gives its stamp of approval, the horticulture world takes notice. A founding partner of Proven Winners — America’s No. 1 plant brand — the New Hampshire-based ornamental grower has settled on Sollum Technologies dynamic LED lighting to optimize production for the hundreds of leading ornamental varieties grown in its controlled-environment greenhouses.
As a national supplier of young plant liners and finished plants to wholesale growers, retail garden center and landscapers across the United States, Pleasant View is known for the highest quality crops and the new and exciting varieties it brings to market each year. The grower sets demanding standards for the technology used in their greenhouses.
Flexibility yields unlimited possibilities for light recipes
With its dynamic LED grow light solution, Montreal-based Sollum Technologies brings Pleasant View unique flexibility to fulfill the varied needs of their quality crops. The fully scalable, 100% dynamic LED lighting solution modulates the full spectrum of the sun’s natural light to illuminate controlled growing environments and evolve with business needs. With multi-zone light management capabilities, each zone benefits from automatic dimming of light intensity and spectra for unlimited possibilities.
“Going forward, the key to success for us is flexibility. We have exacting standards for consistency and quality and our customers have come to expect an ever-growing variety of breathtaking products for their homes and communities,” says Mike Goyette, Operations Manager for Pleasant View Gardens. “In this context, the capability of Sollum’s LED light fixtures to handle an unlimited number of light recipes, especially enabling different lighting recipes for liner and finished product is instrumental to our success. This gives us a tremendous amount of operational flexibility and helps us be prepared for any changes required by our customers.”
To say that the team at Sollum Technologies is excited about the new venture with Pleasant View Gardens would be an understatement. “The significance of Pleasant View Gardens and Proven Winners in the horticultural world cannot be understated,” says Michael Hanan, Sollum Technologies Senior U.S. Sales Director. “This partnership further validates our technology as a flexible and dependable solution for those with both agricultural and ornamental productions alike, and especially for producers requiring a single technology to light multiple crops.”
