Plymouth, ENGLAND -- Plessey, a leading expert in the manufacture of lighting and sensing products and components, will be exhibiting its grow light technology and products for the first time at IPM Essen, the world’s leading trade fair for horticulture, from 24th to 27th January 2017 at Messe Essen Germany. Plessey will be available to discuss their LED horticultural lighting range of products at booth 7B25.

Jonathan Barton, Plessey’s Director for Grow Lights, said:
“We are thrilled to be exhibiting for the first time at IPM Essen. Plessey will be unveiling a new, high power grow light range called Hyperion. Hyperion is the first LED grow light specifically designed to work alongside and eventually replace traditional high pressure sodium grow lights. Plessy’s LED grow lights have a proven record of growing a wide variety of crops in different controlled environments. Hyperion will make LED based grow lighting a viable proposition for all commercially grown plant varieties.”

At IPM Essen, Plessey’s horticultural lighting specialists will be discussing the benefits of the new grow light range with growers and equipment manufacturers. Plessey’s grow lights have been developed through a close working relationship with universities, research organisations and commercial growers. There are over sixty installations in research centres and universities in the UK and overseas using Plessey’s LED grow lights.

IPM Essen, the international trade fair for plants, is the world’s leading trade fair for horticulture. It is the only specialist trade fair to cover the entire value chain of plants, including production, floristry, garden features, point of sale and technology.
