From Colorado Hometown Weekly: The acquisition makes urban-gro the first fully integrated architecture, engineering, and cultivation systems operator in the cannabis controlled environment agriculture, or CEA, space. “This accretive and synergistic acquisition positions Urban-gro for a strong future in the global CEA market. … The company can now directly address more challenges faced by cultivators when expanding existing or designing new CEA facilities,” Urban-gro CEO Bradley Nattrass said in a prepared statement. “… The inclusion of architecture allows us to now offer our clients complete design capabilities for their cultivation, processing, extraction, and retail facilities. Moreover, the move brings the company one step closer to our goal of delivering complete, end-to-end turn-key indoor CEA facilities.”
