Aug. 1, 2017, Eindhoven, the Netherlands – Philips Lighting, a global leader in lighting, has signed a partnership agreement with BWI Grower Technical Sales.

BWI Grower Technical Sales, a division of BWI Companies, provides BWI customers with technical sales and support in the areas of greenhouse design and construction, irrigation design, automation and greenhouse equipment.

With the addition of the Philips Lighting Horticulture LED product offering, BWI Grower Technical Sales can now bring to their customers a broader offering of technical solutions.
