It says it is also close to completing work on a tailored engineering designs to adhere to Europe’s cannabis cultivation requirements.
Bradley Nattrass, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of urban-gro, said: “The European market represents a tremendous growth opportunity for the company.
“With the rapidly growing demand for CEA (Controlled Environment Agriculture) 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.
“These agent engagements represent the first key steps as we build our team and ultimately open our European office as soon as global conditions permit,”
In a press release urban-gro went on to say it plans to ‘leverage its partnerships and existing US-based engineering expertise and overhead to meet the increased demand for sustainable integrated CEA facilities and the cannabis industry expansion across Europe’.
