LAS VEGAS, Aug. 8, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Indoor Farms of America is very pleased to announce today the completion of a licensing agreement with Tiger Corner Farms, located in Charleston, South Carolina for assembly of their GrowTrucks product line covering the Southeast region of the U.S. to facilitate the growing demand for the GrowTrucks containerized vertical aeroponic farms.
"We are excited to team with Tiger Corner Farms as we expand our reach into the Southeast region of the United States," stated David Martin, CEO of Indoor Farms of America. "After purchasing a container farm from us this Spring, they realized our innovation in indoor agriculture is far ahead of anything else in the marketplace, and wanted to expand their relationship with us, and so we reached agreement for Tiger Corner Farms to be our exclusive representative in 7 states along the eastern seaboard, from Virginia to Florida, and including Alabama and Tennessee."
Don Taylor, founder of Tiger Corner Farms, with a long career in logistics management and innovative software development, stated: "When we met Dave at Indoor AgCon in April, we knew right away the vertical aeroponic technology and overall farm platform developed by Dave and Ron had fantastic potential. A visit to their showroom in Las Vegas sealed it for us."
"Part of our plans include bringing ultra fresh, natural and locally grown produce into the neighborhoods that need it most here in our region," says Stefanie Swackhamer, general manager at Tiger Corner Farms. "Dave is working closely with us to ensure our farm becomes a success, and we are excited to be the new manufacturing partner to serve this region with this amazing farming equipment."
The first GrowTruck to hit South Carolina was the Wheelchair Accessible model, which holds 4,550 plants in a 40' container, and is fully operable by someone in a wheelchair. According to Ron Evans, President of Indoor Farms of America, "This was an emotional one for us. We know that thousands of people can benefit from having the ability to be actively involved in running a commercial farm, who never before would have had this type of opportunity."
Part of the commitment from Tiger Corner Farms was the purchase of 10 farms to get started in the region. "We believe there is a real need for these containerized farm platforms in many areas that simply do not get truly fresh produce, especially locally grown produce, on anything resembling a regular basis, and we are gearing up to make it happen," says Don Taylor. Taylor added, "These farms are really pretty easy to operate, and have growing capacity that makes economic sense, above anything else on the market."
"This alliance with quality folks such as Don and his team add to our overall build capacity to satisfy growing demand for our products, and reduce shipping costs to customers in a large region, which makes sense for us as we execute on our plans to bring the best end to end indoor farm solutions to the marketplace across the U.S. and internationally," added Martin.
