"The LX60 delivers what it promises. Overall, it looks very positive. For Spisa, it is of course important to constantly reduce our carbon footprint and minimize energy consumption while optimizing the quality of our products."
Founded in 1995, Spisa is a market leader in Europe for production of ecological salad and herbs. Founder and agronomist Ulf Jönsson is an important partner in Heliospectra’s development of intelligent lighting technology for plant research and greenhouse cultivation since 2006.
Shortly after the LX60’s release, Heliospectra installed initial fixtures at Spisa’s greenhouse in Hejsta outside of Stockholm. Having received great results in comparison to previous lighting solutions, Spisa has since increased their investment and bought additional LX60s as well as the new E60 lamps. Today, Spisa remains a valuable partner—and customer.
