Pipp Horticulture at Indoor Ag-Con

“We want to positively affect canopy output while saving growers time and money”

"We're eager to showcase what we've been working on and share our latest developments and innovations. We continue to develop and refine our products to help cultivators positively affect canopy output while saving time and money by creating a more efficient facility and streamlining operations," says Del Rockwell, Product Manager at Pipp Horticulture. The company is looking forward to showcasing its solutions at this year's Indoor Ag-Con, in Las Vegas on March 11-12.

Addressing market developments
According to Del, the company looks forward to helping growers, especially when looking at the market developments. "These past years, major economic trends and specific pressures have occurred within the cannabis market. Cultivators are frequently merging and consolidating, which offers us opportunities to reassess and standardize best practices. As these partnerships mature, we're discovering the combined value we can provide to growers and consumers alike."

Last year, Pipp harnessed the synergy created by these mergers and consolidations. "We've had the opportunity to acquire the assets of Grow Glide, combining two leading suppliers of multi-level mobile cultivation racking in the cannabis industry. This was no small feat, especially considering the high level of competition we both maintained in the industry over the past several years. It's truly a dream scenario, as we can take the best elements from each company's product line and culture, blend them together, and deliver something greater than the sum of its parts. Look forward to new and upgraded solutions in the coming year. We have exciting plans for the future."

New offerings
At this year's Indoor Ag-Con, Pipp Horticulture is set to showcase its offerings to better serve growers. "We recently launched the next generation of our In-Rack Air Circulation System, VAS 2.0. We've diligently collected feedback on the original system and made significant improvements and enhancements. Our goals were pretty straightforward, but I would not say 'easy'. The objective was to significantly improve performance while simultaneously reducing material costs. Our newly assembled team employed a quantitative, science-based approach, using CFD and Design of Experiments to iterate quickly and validate our improvements. As a result, we were able to nearly double the recorded airflow, reduce material and installation costs, and enhance the system's serviceability and cleanability. You might need to turn our fans down!" Del explains.

Pipp is also excited to showcase a variety of additional products and accessories, including:

- ELEVATE Platform Outside Aisle solution: "This solution allows the use of Pipp's ELEVATE Platform system throughout the entire room without requiring significant layout changes for existing rooms."
- Modular Upright design: "Our modular uprights provide various direct and indirect advantages to our customers. The adjustable system eliminates interference points between our racking and other systems, such as airflow and irrigation, while significantly improving shipping and logistical efficiencies."
- Recessed Bearing carriage construction: "A minor visual change to our foundational carriage that yields improvements in system performance, cleanability, serviceability, and corrosion resistance, all of which play a significant role in GMP compliance."
- GGS Hybrid Rolling Bench: "This product combines the best aspects of GGS's tried-and-true rolling bench frame with continuous tray technology with the full range of mobility and rolling performance of the Pipp Carriage system into the ideal solution for single-level systems."
