When Lettuce Grow began to search for a lighting partner to expand their Farmstand into an indoor/outdoor, year-round product, ITC was a great fit. Drawing on years of experience working with customers to provide innovative products, ITC recognized the importance of understanding the Lettuce Grow philosophy when designing, producing, and delivering a lighting solution. Lettuce Grow’s vision is that the company will “provide families access to clean, unprocessed food” while also “decreasing transportation emissions, drastically reducing water usage, and recycling ocean-bound plastics from places that lack recycling initiatives”.
Understanding the driving force behind the Farmstand and the Lettuce Grow mission gave ITC the essential knowledge to take the Lettuce Grow light design concept and engineer a final solution that was consistent with their values and also effective at advancing plant growth.
As an expert in horticultural lighting with ongoing scientific studies on the effects of various LED light spectrums on plant growth, ITC had detailed, validated data to apply to the light spectrum choice. ITC was also able to bring to bear our experience in designing lights that meet strict certification an d quality standards for wet and harsh environments, such as vehicle undercarriage lights, underwater lights, marine lighting, and external RV lighted products. Our expertise in sourcing materials from a variety of vendors and managing quality processes ensured we could meet the required material and quality standards. Because ITC has an established assembly facility and sophisticated supply chain, we were able to help minimize the carbon footprint associated with production, packaging, and shipping.
The final product, Glow Rings™, has received glowing reviews from Lettuce Grow customers. The Lettuce Grow light design concept became a fabulous success story, with comments such as “Beautiful and effective and efficient!”, “Best lighting available.”, “Beyond expectations!”, and “Easy to assemble, everything growing”.
