Pipp Horticulture has acquired the GGS Group of Companies. Based in Vineland, Ontario, GGS manufactures greenhouses and greenhouse growing solutions including traditional rolling benches, heating and ventilation systems, and curtain systems.
“We are thrilled to welcome the entire GGS team to the Pipp family of companies," said Craig Umans, Pipp president and CEO. "GGS has decades of experience manufacturing greenhouse structures and has become a leading supplier to the horticulture industry. The company has consistently impressed us with its ability to deliver value to its customers, and we look forward to our next phase of growth.”
“We are pleased to partner with PIPP as we build an even more expansive platform to serve our customers.” said Leigh Coulter, President and Owner of GGS. “Our expertise in designing, manufacturing and installing commercial greenhouse structures, combined with Pipp's state-of-the-art vertical farming and space optimization solutions, will allow us to offer North American growers a complete and efficient solution.”
“This acquisition is another step in Pipp's strategy to become the leading supplier of turnkey solutions to all segments of horticulture globally," said Marc Paiement, Senior Partner at Novacap. "We look forward to continuing to work with them throughout this process."
For the past several years, Pipp Horticulture’s mission has been to help cultivators across the globe save time and money by creating a more efficient grow facility and help streamline operations.
Following this transaction, Coulter will remain President and CEO and operations will remain under the GGS banner.
