Affinor Growers Ltd., Canada, signed an exclusive manufacturing license with Cobotix Manufacturing Inc., Canada, to build a state-of-the-art manufacturing plant in Aruba to manufacture the patented stainless-steel towers for mass production of fruits and vegetables. The $5 million project includes the set-up of lasers and welding forming equipment.

Cobotix Manufacturing is the current manufacturer of Affinor Growers’ patented vertical farming technology.

“The manufacturing processes, quality and delivery are key when building a project of this size,” says Nicholas Brusatore, chief executive officer of Affinor Growers. “We are excited to be able to service the Caribbean with Cobotix, and ensure all needs are met with real-time manufacturing.”
