LAFAYETTE, Colo., March 24, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — urban-gro, Inc. (NASDAQ: UGRO) (“urban-gro” or the “Company”), a leading global horticulture company that engineers and designs commercial Controlled Environment Agriculture (“CEA”) facilities and integrates complex environmental equipment systems, today announced it has signed agreements with two European companies, one in France and one in the Netherlands, experiencing quick inertia with opportunities throughout the European market. These representation agreements are the Company’s first outside of the US. Additionally, the Company is readying final development with a strategic vendor partner of a complex environmental mechanical system that is specifically designed for the European market.
While continuing its work on existing projects the Company signed in 2020, the Company is committed to advancing its presence and strategic reach across Europe. The Company plans to leverage its partnerships and existing U.S. based engineering expertise and overhead to meet the increased demand for sustainable integrated CEA facilities and the cannabis industry expansion across Europe.
The European market represents a tremendous growth opportunity for the Company. With the rapidly growing demand for CEA solutions, we believe urban-gro is well-positioned to bring our acquired expertise in engineering, design and custom equipment system integration to this emerging market.
