Altman Plants is furthering automation of its greenhouse growing facilities via new equipment from TTA USA LLC. According to TTA officials, the latest investment/expansion allows Altman to achieve a higher production capacity, decrease labor costs, and improve the quality of its plantings.
TTA and Altman Plants have had a partnership for several years now. Altman’s latest order with TTA consists of four PackPlanter Wireless Split 48’s with gripper cleaning stations and automatic tray loading systems. The high-speed equipment can accommodate up to 60,000 plugs per hour and features individual driven plant grippers.
The new equipment is slated to be in operation sometime around November.
