March 31, 2014 – Canadian-based Conviron and Valoya of Finland have made an agreement for the distribution of Valoya LEDs and integration of Valoya LEDs into Conviron growth chambers and rooms.
Effective immediately, Conviron is the exclusive distributor of Valoya’s products to seed and biotech companies, government institutions and universities in North America, India, Australia and Brazil.
As a preferred partner, Conviron now has full access to Valoya’s products, research and solutions. Working collaboratively, Conviron will integrate Valoya’s technology into new and existing products to provide clients with high-performing, cost-effective LED lighting solutions.
Valoya’s LED products are designed specifically for plant growth applications and therefore offer many benefits to plant researchers and facility managers.
MEASURABLE ENERGY SAVINGS
Based on their extensive plant light response research, Valoya’s wide spectrum LED lights result in better yields and measurable energy savings. Valoya also provides LEDs with a white sun-like spectrum that provides excellent growth properties while preserving the visual comfort of users.
“Over the past five years we have evaluated and integrated various LED solutions in our controlled environments,” said Conviron CEO Steve Kroft.
“Our research showed that Valoya’s LEDs not only surpassed all other LED lights in desired plant response, but also outperformed technically in terms of heat management, light output and energy savings while integrating seamlessly with our control systems. Like our own products, Valoya’s products are globally deployable, which is important to our multinational clients.”
SYNERGIES BETWEEN THE COMPANIES
Valoya CEO Lars Aikala said the two companies have worked together on various projects for more than four years “and the synergies between companies are clear to our clients. This agreement with Conviron enables us to serve seed companies and the biotech and argritech markets with greater reach, better support and unprecedented solutions.
“Furthermore, Conviron’s recent acquisition of Argus Controls brings us closer to commercial growers in North America and new opportunities around the world.”
