Sollum Technologies, the company that pioneered a fully dynamic LED grow light solution, is pleased to announce that Les Serres Bertrand, a leader in the greenhouse industry, has chosen to install Sollum®’s dynamic LED lighting solution for its tomato greenhouse located in Lanoraie, Québec, which they acquired in 2017. This investment is the company’s first foray into LED technology.
