Cannabis cultivation company, Surna Inc., announced their largest contract yet, valued at 3.2 million dollars. The company is contracted to provide equipment to a 53,000 square feet Arizona-based facility.
Headquartered in Boulder, CO, Surna “designs, engineers and sells cultivation technologies for controlled environment agriculture.”
Their products include liquid-based process cooling systems, full-service engineering for commercial-scale thermodynamic systems, and automation devices and technologies used for lighting and climate control.
The Arizona facility will be receiving custom air handlers, heat recovery chillers, and a StrataAir vertical racking airflow system.
These systems will aid in cultivation, processing, and drying. Surna will also provide its SentryIQ environmental controls and system start-up. These services are offered in both the United States and Canada.
CEO Tony McDonald commented, “For the second time in six months Surna is announcing its largest-ever single contract with this latest contract being nearly 15% larger than the previous record.
Over the last several years Surna has invested heavily in technology R&D as well as in our engineering capabilities. The result has been an expanding portfolio of product and system offerings and enhanced engineering sophistication.”
Surna’s customers are typically commercial, state- and provincial-regulated cannabis growers located in the United States and Canada. They are slowly expanding to other international locations including “growers building new facilities and those expanding or retrofitting existing facilities.”
Surna generates most of their revenue through supplying their products, services, and technologies to commercial indoor and hybrid sealed greenhouse facilities ranging from several thousand to more than 100,000 square feet.
After being in the cultivation business for over 14 years, Surna brings climate-controlled solutions to customers, helping improve crop quality and yield. Surna’s expertise also helps optimize energy and water efficiency to ensure compliance with state and local codes.
Durango Cannabis Company’s Nic Borst explains, “If we didn’t have Surna and the support behind that, we would have made a lot more mistakes along the way, probably lost a lot more crops, and we wouldn’t have been able to deliver as high a quality of crops as we’ve been able, as soon, to the market. That was really big for us.”
