Intelligent Growth Solutions (IGS) has announced that Loveland, Colorado will be home to its North American headquarters as the company continues to expand. The opening of an operating base in Loveland will allow the company to better serve North American customers, the company’s fastest growing market.

“IGS’ technology, mission and people are a perfect fit for the agrotechnology ecosystem that continues to thrive in our region and in Loveland,” said Kelly Jones, Economic Development Director for the City of Loveland. “Northern Colorado offers tremendous value across a variety of industries, and we are proud of this truly collaborative, regional effort to bring this innovative company and high-paying jobs to the region.”

“The location of our North American headquarters is a critical decision in our evolution as a market leader. We are confident that our new base in Loveland will enable our rapidly growing business to continue to expand and thrive on a global platform as we provide vertical farming infrastructure that enables true farmers to grow a growing range of crops reliable, profitable and sustainable to grow because for the first time we give them total control of the weather: engineered in Scotland, made in Colorado.”
