Integrated Temperature, Humidity and Airflow Solutions Enhance and Protect Crops

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Lafayette, Colo., (January 22, 2020) – urban-gro, Inc. (OTCQX: UGRO) (“urban-gro” or the “Company”), a leading engineering, design, and product solutions company that creates high performance cannabis cultivation facilities around the world, is pleased to announce that it has entered into a strategic agreement with Desert Aire to be a provider of GrowAire™ systems to the indoor cannabis cultivation market. urban-gro is being regarded as a Systems Integration National Account for Desert Aire within the indoor agriculture market.

Brian Zimmerman, PE, Executive Vice President of Engineering for urban-gro, notes, “over the past few years, I have personally provided MEP design services for over a dozen cultivation projects utilizing GrowAire’s integrated temperature, humidity and airflow solution. GrowAire’s integrated systems have created predictable, stable environments with increased energy efficiency. I am excited that urban-gro will now have the ability to provide this alternative to its growing customer base.”

Conventional air conditioners are neither designed nor capable of consistently and efficiently controlling environments with high temperature and humidity load demands. Dehumidification is often an afterthought, and portable dehumidifiers do not deliver the cross-functional benefits of environmental control.

“Desert Aire has designed GrowAire specifically for meeting the sensible and latent needs of indoor growing climates,” said Paul Stewart, Vice President of Sales for Desert Aire LLC. “It is a natural fit to work with a design and systems integration leader such as urban-gro to ensure cultivators efficiently manage and optimize their cultivation operations.”

Bradley Nattrass, Co-Founder, Chairman, and Chief Executive Officer of urban-gro, commented, “Subsequent to our acquisition of the MEP firm Impact Engineering in Q1 2019, and inline with our ongoing focus of integrating complex environmental equipment systems into our customers’ facilities, it is a natural step for urban-gro to partner with purpose-built HVAC solutions providers such as GrowAire. By doing so, we are providing our North America customers with solutions that assist them in maintaining a competitive advantage both today and into the future.”
