Midstream Lighting, a world leader in aviation, maritime and sports LED lighting technology today announces an agreement to acquire Hyperion Grow Lights as part of a strategy to dramatically enhance support for greenhouse growers within the European and international horticulture sectors.
The acquisition underlines Midstream’s commitment to leveraging the latest technology, design approaches and manufacturing techniques to enable growers to significantly reduce cultivation time, maximise crop yields and implement new energy efficient, sustainable operations.
Under the terms of the deal, Midstream will retain the Hyperion brand as its horticulture sector offering, and integrate the business into Midstream’s engineering development, UK & European manufacturing, customer support, and project delivery operations.
As part of its commitment to innovation, Midstream will also invest in a new 20,000-piece per year production line as a first phase to support the new Hyperion series launching today at Greentech 2022 Amsterdam.
This significant increase in manufacturing capability, Midstream’s award-winning technology leadership, and its experience delivering complex projects in over 60 countries assures at-scale delivery of transformation lighting projects for horticultural clients worldwide.
The acquisition is expected to complete in July 2022.
Midstream Co-Founder and Commercial Director, Yuli Grig, says:
“Hyperion is a true pioneer in the world of high-intensity greenhouse lighting. The undoubted synergies between the two businesses, our joint focus on innovation, customer-first design and, of course, Midstream’s global scale and financial stability, further strengthen our proposition in this expanding market. The demand of our customers in the Aviation, Maritime and Sport sectors has been for high-performance, reliability and robustness and we have engineered our solutions to meet those challenges in the most complex environments around the world.
