Montréal, Québec, Canada – Following last year's success in the Companies-to-Watch category, Sollum Technologies has received the Deloitte Fast 50™ award in the Clean Technology category.This prestigious recognition highlights Sollum’s continued commitment to environmentally responsible innovation.
The Deloitte Technology Fast 50™ program rewards companies big and small in a variety of categories: Technology Fast 50, Enterprise Fast 15, Companies-to-Watch, North American Fast 500™ and Clean Technology. The Clean Technology award recognizes innovators using sustainable design to achieve economic growth and reduce environmental impacts. “Sollum demonstrates that companies who go the extra distance to serve their clients with the most cutting-edge innovation can not only enjoy commercial success but can do so with sustainable development goals to protect the environment and improve food security,” says Sollum Technologies CEO Louis Brun. " I am proud that Deloitte has recognized the benefits of the only fully dynamic LED greenhouse lighting solution on the market", he added.
Sollum® has put the spotlight on dynamic horticultural lighting technology which offers tremendous benefits in terms of energy efficiency. Their recent line of fixtures, the SF-Family, in tandem with their AI-supported cloud-based platform, SUN as a Service®, provide a solution that fits various greenhouse business models and gives producers the power to program their greenhouse lights according to plant needs and ambient conditions. Since lights continuously and dynamically adapt to changing parameters related to plant growing requirements and external factors (such as the amount of available natural sunlight) Sollum’s solution ensures that only the necessary amount of lighting is used at any given time to maximize energy efficiency while improving productivity and produce quality.
The Clean Technology award is added to a growing list recognizing Sollum achievements in the horticultural industry.
