Focus on Plants
Founded in 1964, we are the only manufacturer singularly focused on the technology and science of plant growth in controlled environments. Our design and development group consists of over 50 engineers and technologists focused on converting the needs of our researchers and growers into controlled environments optimized for growing plants.
Working together, our Engineering and Service teams have developed specialized expertise and understanding in plant responses to controlled environmental factors - including uniformity, airflow, climate control and lighting - that we integrate into everything we do, from product design to troubleshooting. Further, we learn from our global network of clients to build a unique body of knowledge that we leverage to develop innovative solutions.
Over the decades, Conviron has established a global reputation as the leader in controlled environment systems for plant growth. The Conviron brand is associated with product reliability and longevity. Many models remain in operation in excess of 30 years and it's that proven track record that has helped Conviron become the most highly cited plant growth chamber and room manufacturer in thousands of peer reviewed academic publications around the world.
Conviron’s reputation for reliability has its foundations in three core principles that are part of the design of each of its products. These principles ensure value to our customers in both the initial cost and the operating life of our units. These principles are product reliability and durability, product functionality and servicing, and the application of appropriate technology.

Commitment to Quality
With many of our plant growth chambers and rooms being in use for decades, the Conviron brand has grown synonymous with product reliability and longevity.
Before making a significant investment in controlled environment equipment, you need to have assurance that the products you are purchasing are safe and of high quality. While most suppliers claim to manufacture products of a high quality, customers need to have confidence that their equipment truly meets that standard with an independent and objective measurement.

Highly Satisfied Client base
Whether it's a single chamber or room, a controls upgrade, lighting retrofit or an entire controlled environment facility, our team does not rest until you are growing confidently. That is why 9 out of 10 clients highly recommend Conviron to their colleagues.
Our first step in building that relationship is to use a consultative process to understand your needs. We then act as a design/manufacturer to deliver and install a complete solution. This approach often times requires extensive information exchange with you in order to understand your needs, the intended outcome of your work, flow of production, building layout and utility designs. All of these are important inputs to delivering a successful project. It is our experience that projects that adopt this approach succeed at the highest rate.
We collaborate closely with your team and:
- Provide experience in planning to you and project architects to help improve facility layout, usage of space, movement of plants and materials, and conservation of energy
- Advise on equipment interface requirements for the mechanical and electrical consultants and collaborate with them as the project evolves from design through construction
- Work directly with the general contractor during construction, installation, and facility commissioning
Throughout the course of our relationship, our clients are often faced with challenges such as upgrading existing facilities to reap energy or other resource efficiencies, procuring new equipment to take on all together new projects or consolidating shared resources and facilities resource management. Conviron has been a partner to clients facing all of these challenges. Having supplied most of the world’s largest plant growth facilities, Conviron understands what is required to successfully adapt to changing needs on time and on budget.
As your partner, our relationship extends far beyond the commissioning and sign-off phase. During the entire operational life of the facility, Conviron will be at your side to make modifications and adaptations to equipment as needs change and as new technologies emerge, offer advice and guidance should changes to the overall facility ever be contemplated, and of course to address any technical issues that may arise.
