The new partnership will offer HydroGarden "an additional route into the growing hydroponics and horticultural lighting sector, as well as enabling Plessey to benefit from HydroGarden’s established relationships with customers nationwide", the company said.
 
The announcement follows a recent Plessey research project, which it says found its Hyperion 1000 and Hyperion 1600 LED units deliver greater returns for commercial growers and a 40% energy saving compared to equivalent 600W and 1000W sodium grow lights.
 
The new partnership means customers can now order Plessey’s range of Horticultural LED grow lights through HydroGarden’s distribution network, for dispatch in June.
 
HydroGarden managing director Jonathan Aldridge said: "The LED lighting market is an emerging one and it’s exciting for us to be spearheading the introduction of new technology through our partnership with Plessey. The levels of product innovation and expertise Plessey has at its disposal will be a huge asset to hydroponics users throughout the UK and we can’t wait to play our part in helping them to achieve some really impressive results."
 
Plessey Growlights director Jonathan Barton said: "We view HydroGarden’s extensive distribution network as an extremely important channel for us, and we are delighted that HydroGarden will be offering our Hyperion 1000 and Hyperion 1600 LED grow light products to its hydroponics and horticultural lighting customers. 
"The Hyperion units can be used to add or replace existing installations on the existing greenhouse trellis and provide a variety of spectrums to enhance yield, quality and consistency. HydroGarden is now our key partner in spearheading the commercialisation of the Hyperion grow light."
