You may have met Chris Brown during his 40 years as a senior executive with Wiedenbach-Brown, Purchase, NY, a full-line distributor with a specialty in lighting solutions now owned by CED’s U.S. Electrical Services. Over the past year, Brown has been busy building a new lighting-based venture — Ultra Yield Solutions, a specialist in horticultural lighting with offices in Reno, NV, and Mamaroneck, NY. Fueled in part by a surge in cannabis farming in warehouses and vertical greenhouses, the horticultural lighting market will reach $7.9 billion by 2026 powered by a CAGR exceeding 16%, according to a report published on the Ultra Yield Solutions website (ultrayieldsolutions.net) by Market Research Future (MRFR).
Ultra Yield Solutions made news recently when the Edison Report reported that Acuity Brands, Inc., Atlanta, signed it as its first distributor for the company’s new Verjure horticulture LED lighting solution. Acuity says its Verjure product line was developed using academic, plant-based research to determine how best to design an LED horticulture light based on optimal spectral distribution and fixture performance.
Ultra Yield Solutions says on its website that its team of energy experts are a “hands-on, lighting-centric distributor consultants focusing on yield, light efficacy and cost savings. We navigate the complexities associated with CEA (controlled environment agriculture) lighting while you focus on growing the best crop possible.”
