Intergrow Greenhouses Inc. is in the final stages of an 18-acre expansion to its existing 30 acres of greenhouse located in Albion, NY. The expansion started in late 2010 and will be complete with first fall-winter crop planting in September.
In addition to 18 new acres of greenhouse, Intergrow will be adding a new packinghouse, irrigation pond and additional office space.
To continue its advancement in greenhouse technology, Intergrow will be one of the early commercial greenhouse to utilize HortiFuse glass. This specialized glass allows for optimum PAR light distribution.
Kris Gibson, vice president of sales and marketing, said in a July 13 press release, "With an additional 18 acres of greenhouse we can continue to stagger out planting dates to provide more tomatoes year round to our customers."
Once complete, Intergrow will have 48 acres of greenhouse growing red, yellow, orange, and roma tomatoes on-the-vine, as well as cocktail tomatoes.
