AMCO Produce Teams Up With Sollum Technologies

AMCO Produce, based in Leamington, Ontario, has been setting the gold standard in the fresh produce sector for over four decades. Their steadfast commitment to operational excellence has positioned them as leaders in cultivating and distributing various fruits and vegetables. In a move reiterating AMCO’s commitment to continuous improvement, the company has partnered with Sollum Technologies to replace their existing HPS lights with Sollum’s cutting-edge LED grow light solutions.

AMCO supplies many fruits and vegetables, including tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, and newly added strawberries. Dealing with such a diverse range of crops brings a unique set of challenges, not the least of which is meeting the variable lighting needs of each crop. As President of AMCO Produce, Fausto Amicone explains, “Meeting the lighting needs of every crop would require purchasing multiple models of fixtures.”

Sollum Technologies brings a revolutionary offering—a single, fully programmable LED lighting solution that can be adapted for unlimited lighting zones, each with its own personalized lighting “recipe.” This enables AMCO to adjust the lighting conditions for each crop and each growth stage without additional hardware or software.

Louis Brun, President and CEO of Sollum Technologies, adds that their cloud-based SUN as a Service® platform allows 24/7 monitoring and provides essential data for preventive maintenance. “We support growers not just during the installation phase but throughout the year,” Brun adds, underscoring Sollum’s comprehensive service offering.

AMCO is among a growing number of producers in Leamington—often called Canada’s greenhouse capital—who have transitioned to Sollum’s dynamic LED grow lights. The technology is making waves in Canada, Europe, and the United States. This international traction testifies to the compelling benefits of innovative LED lighting in greenhouses, which include energy savings, increased productivity, and production quality.

Founded in 2015 and based in Montréal, Québec, Sollum Technologies is the designer of the world’s only 100% dynamic LED lighting solution, mimicking the full spectrum of the Sun’s natural light. Controlled by its proprietary SUN as a Service® platform, Sollum’s award-winning technology provides a scalable cleantech solution that can evolve with business needs—their platform’s multi-zone light management benefits from automatic dimming of an unlimited number of light recipes. 

The partnership between AMCO Produce and Sollum Technologies marks a milestone in the greenhouse industry, setting a new standard for operational efficiency and sustainable practices. By leveraging Sollum’s dynamic LED lighting, AMCO aims to take its diverse produce offering to new heights, fulfilling the company’s long-standing mission of delivering nothing but the best.
