“ VERTICAL FARMING MAXIMIZES PRODUCTION , reduces operating costs , and increases overall revenue per square foot by as much as three times .”
Pipp entered the horticulture space with nearly 40 years of experience in the retail industry . As a business that has traditionally selected a single market to serve and lead , the team says Pipp hit the jackpot with the horticulture industry . The Walker , Michigan-based company didn ’ t wait long to get schooled in the world of growing . Pipp attended seminars , acquainted itself with appropriate suppliers , dropped into trade shows , hired experienced growers , and developed a green thumb of its own . “ The horticulture space demands focused attention to detail , deep analysis , continual improvement , innovation , corporate strength and staying power ,” says the team .
“ These requirements speak directly to the attributes that embody Pipp Mobile Storage Systems , Inc ., and now Pipp Horticulture .” Pipp ’ s mobile vertical grow racks and Greenhaus grow tray systems allow cultivators to increase production by maximizing their cubic canopy footprint without increasing the square footprint of the growing room or building .
