VP OF GROWGENERATION
MANAGEMENT CORP.

Although cultivating has been a lifelong passion, Jeremy’s professional career started in 2004 when he and his wife opened a hydroponics retail store.

DEDICATED COMMERCIAL ACCOUNT MANAGER

The GrowGeneration Commercial Account Managers are here to advise your team and can help determine the best style of cultivation for your operation. 

Each member has extensive cultivating experience, inclusive of the many genres of hydroponics and soil. Our Commercial Account Managers truly shine when determining how to best maximize space in each grow room, taking into consideration lighting, fertigation, irrigation, atmosphere controls, table and benching designs, and harvest schedules.

LIGHTING

Our Commercial Account Managers have experience with many styles of lighting from LEDs, HPS, & CMH. Choosing the best light spectrum for your operation is paramount to your success. We have the ability to source products from any manufacturer and work with you to create the best lighting layouts for your facility.

ENVIRONMENTAL CONTROLS

The humidity of a grow room plays a large part in how plants function. It can affect the growth and final yield as well as having implications in the spread of disease, mold, and mildew. It is key to have a thorough understanding of exactly what plants need and how to make sure they receive it. Having the proper HVAC systems and dehumidifiers are crucial to any grow room and will have a profound effect on quality and yield.

WATER FILTRATION

One of the best methods for water filtration is a commercial reverse osmosis system. Using reverse osmosis for water filtration is the most economical, efficient, and reliable way to ensure consistently pure water quality used for growing. While some cultivators are lucky enough to enjoy a clean, consistent water source that’s always available, increasingly, that’s not always the case. Heavy metals, pesticides and other kinds of toxic materials are making their way into the water supply. With an intensified regulatory focus on quality and safety, commercial reverse osmosis is becoming a crucial component of crafting a top-shelf, compliant product.

BENCHING/RACKING SYSTEMS

The Commercial Account Managers will assist in determining the best system for your room in order to maximize space.

BUILDING MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS

Allow for an operation to be controlled from one centralized interface. This system ties everything together.

NUTRIENTS

Our Commercial Account Managers can advise on the pros & cons of nutrients that will work best for your growing facility.

Fertigation systems have many benefits! They allow you to automate the
mixing of your nutrients, thus decreasing labor costs and human error; some systems can even mix multiple recipes for different cultivation rooms. Fertigation systems alleviate the need for water holding tanks, thus allowing for more cultivation space in your facility. It is best to get advice or discuss your plan with one of our Commercial Account Managers when choosing a fertigation system because of their knowledge and expertise.
