July 9, 2013, Taiwan — Valoya, a provider of LED lights for professional horticultural applications, has delivered several hundred of its B100 LED fixtures to Taiwanese grower David Lin for his advanced supplementary lighting multi-layer system.

In 2011, Lin decided to start cultivation of lettuce and herbs without natural light on his Stony Brook Hydroponic Farm. He wanted full control of quality and production volumes.

The plants are grown from seed. The farm sells directly to its customers, including many of the top restaurants in Taipei.

“My customers are very demanding in terms of quality,” said Lin. “They have been very satisfied with the high quality of my lettuce and herbs.”

Lars Aikala, CEO of Valoya, said that Lin has chosen Valoya lights each time he has expanded.

“It is very nice to see that the in-depth research we have put into light spectra over the years is providing high value to our customers’ production.”
