Ecotech Marine is gearing up for its first major hardware release of 2014. The Hanover Township based company has been laying the groundwork to expand into the horticulture industry with announcements coming for a new lighting and integration system, according to sources briefed on the plans. However, the decision has not been finalized and sources made it clear that the plans are in flux.
Additionally, several leaks have turned up online and other sources. Such as a new logo crafted for the new division dubbed “Ecotech Horticulture”, which would seem to align nicely with their new lighting systems targeting those that grow plants for a living and for recreational purposes. The new brand is targeting the fast growing horticulture industry, which has seen a surge of infusion from state laws in Colorado, and Washington states. Those laws legalize the popular drug Cannabis for recreational purposes in small amounts. Folks can now grow plants in their homes increasing the need for low energy highly efficient LED lights.
As Ecotech Marine invests in their new brand, Ecotech Horticulture, recent filings that have been unearthed for a “Grow Link” trademark application. The trademark has an applied for class of “Electronic controllers for controlling environmental variables in horticulture setups; Programmable electronic controllers for controlling environmental variables in horticulture setups.”Interestingly, the trademark was filed back in 2012 and has since been granted three additional extensions. Extensions are generally given when a company has not brought the product to market and is awaiting some sort of product launch or launching the product to the public.
All of these indicate the pending arrive of Ecotech lighting and equipment for the horticulture industry. Back in 2013 Patrick Clasen went on record with The Morning Call a Leigh Valley newspaper and stated “We have looked into the horticulture market, and we have our eyes on a few other places”. Evidently admitting to the fact they were at least exploring a new brand even though they were well past the exploratory phases.
