Our story begins in a Finnish greenhouse. Netled was founded by Esa Kivioja, a tomato grower for over 25 years. Year-a-round production in a vast area resulted in high energy usage and costly energy bills. To tackle this issue, he started to test and develop different LED lighting solutions with a team. Finally in 2007, the product development of tomato interlight started and the company Netled was founded.
Today Netled offers turn-key vertical farming systems and innovative greenhouse lighting solutions. Our passion is to help our customers to get the best performance out of the growing processes. Long experience in horticultural lighting design in challenging northern light environment has helped us to create working and smart solutions. We take pride to ensure that every part of our projects are operated with precision, in schedule and in sustainable way. As we have a background as growers, we understand the meaning of lighting as a meaningful part of the bigger picture.
