Walker, Michigan – May 21, 2018 – PRESS RELEASE – Pipp Horticulture (a division of Pipp Mobile Storage Systems, Inc.), a provider of space-saving, multi-level mobile cultivation systems, announced that it has acquired Greenhaus Industries Inc., an innovator and manufacturer of multi-level cultivation and drying systems designed for the vertical farming industry. The principals of Greenhaus, who will remain with the organization, have combined over 25 years of experience in indoor cultivation design, operations and product development. Pipp Horticulture and Greenhaus have been strategic partners since 2017 and have already completed numerous projects together across the United States and Canada.
“This union will allow us to combine Pipp’s engineering, manufacturing and installation expertise with Greenhaus’ extensive vertical cultivation and horticulture knowledge, to rapidly expand in North America and abroad,” said Craig Umans, CEO of Pipp Mobile Storage Systems Inc. “Combined, we are poised to become a leader in this emerging industry."
Vertical farming is projected to be over a $6 billion industry by 2023. Recognizing the potential in this market, Pipp Horticulture has developed a movable, multi-layer growing system, allowing indoor agriculture operations to stack grow trays to maximize its cubic and square footprint and increase yields.
“Vertical farming is the future. One indoor acre equals four to six outdoor acres while having a higher and more consistent yield, protection from adverse weather and increased bio-security,” said Michael Williamson, founding partner of Greenhaus Industries. “With Pipp Horticulture, we are thrilled to help create more efficient and sustainable facilities for food and cannabis crops.
“We are excited that this acquisition will bring us one step closer to becoming a one-stop-shop for our customers, providing turnkey solutions for their cultivation needs,” said Craig Umans, CEO of Pipp Mobile Storage Systems Inc.
