Matica has engaged Ron Berkhout to design greenhouses for their 181 acre property in Hemmingford, Quebec. The company intends to begin construction of a 200,000 square foot custom designed and built greenhouse in June of this year, with a long-term goal of building 1,000,000 square feet of combined greenhouses.
Ron Berkhout, founding partner of Inhuis Contrived, has worked in the horticultural industry for nearly 30 years. Starting at a young age, working with his father he built greenhouses across Ontario, learning the industry first hand. For two decades, Mr. Berkhout worked for the two largest horticultural lighting companies in the world, P.L. Light Systems and Gavita Horticultural Lighting, where working with his father successfully opened their North American office.
Boris Ziger, Matica CEO states, “The entire company is excited to begin this new project. Together with our Dorval facility and our research partner Yunify, we hope to make our mark on the burgeoning Quebec cannabis industry.”
