April 2, 2014, Vineland Station, Ont. — Austin, Texas-based LED lighting manufacturer Illumitex, Inc. has partnered with world-class greenhouse manufacturer GGS Structures Inc.

The new team will provide complete growing solutions to all horticulture markets including vegetable, flower and medicinal cannabis in both greenhouse and controlled environment agriculture applications.

GGS has designed, manufactured and installed commercial greenhouse structures worldwide since 1979. It helps growers maximize crop value via leading edge structural facilities, heating, cooling, ventilation, benches, irrigation, environmental controls and many other greenhouse supplies.


“Illumitex could not be more excited to partner with a company that has the integrity, reputation and proven track record that GGS has,” notes Eric Anderson, vice-president of Business Development at Illumitex.

“GGS has been an industry leader in the greenhouse and plant growth market for many years.”

Illumitex has radically transformed traditional LED design with the creation of LED lighting that emits highly uniform and precise illumination directly from the source to the plant canopy.

With die-level optical integration, inefficient secondary optics to control the light are unnecessary, opening the world of horticulture lighting to more versatile and energy efficient options than ever before imagined.


“We know that LED is the future of horticultural lighting, whether it is sole-sourced or supplemental, and we have seen everything on the market," says GGS vice-president Gerry Harrison.

"Nothing we have seen can compare to the performance and plant growth expertise that Illumitex is offering to the plant growth industry.”
