"We are pleased to welcome AiBiDa to our horticultural network,” said Udo van Slooten, Business Leader Horticulture at Signify. "Yunnan AiBiDa is committed to integrate advanced European Horticulture technology and facilities to China’s developing floriculture market. AiBiDa’s flowers such as cut rose enjoy a high reputation in the Chinese market. Signify will provide AiBiDa with advanced horticulture LED lighting technology and services to improve the quality and yield of their greenhouse crops.”
The partnership will further promote the use of LED applications in floriculture production in greenhouses. "We need high quality products for our customers in China. Philips Horticulture LED lighting technology is what we need for our greenhouse crop production," said Li Qin, founder and CEO of Yunnan AiBiDa."
Signify and Yunnan AiBiDa have already cooperated in the Linxia International (Sino-Dutch) Floriculture Port project located in Gansu province. In May this year, a three-party joint laboratory (Signify, Baiyi Group and Yunnan AiBiDa) was officially set up at the project location. Meanwhile Yunnan AiBiDa was awarded as ambassador of Philips Horticulture LED lighting solutions globally and locally in China’s Floriculture market. Signify will continue to expand its partner network in China to better serve the Chinese Horticulture market with innovative Philips grow lights and services.
