HydraFiber, AgriNomix Celebrate 100th Machine Installation at N.G. Heimos

HydraFiber, in partnership with AgriNomix, recently celebrated the 100th installation of HydraFiber Processing Equipment. The companies’ installations span across North America and abroad, serving growers of all sizes with a renewable, readily available raw material option.

The 100th machine was installed at N.G. Heimos Greenhouses in Millstadt, Illinois.

“We are excited to get the talented team at N.G. Heimos up and running with HydraFiber,” said Jennifer Neujahr, director of business development. “But this milestone is also a celebration of every operation that has made the transition to HydraFiber and showed others that they can grow better plants and better margins, too. They’ve helped us to become game changers in the industry. HydraFiber is no longer ‘new.’ It is a proven technology used day in and day out by growers looking to improve their soil and media program.”

“After trialing, we saw firsthand that HydraFiber is an effective product that not only reduces risk because it’s made in the US, but it also improves operational efficiencies and lowers production costs,” said Amy Morris at N.G. Heimos. “It has been a lifesaver for us this year because of the scarcity of raw materials. We’ve been able to dial up our rate of HydraFiber to replace other materials that were unavailable, allowing us to keep our production running when we otherwise wouldn’t have been able to due to lack of other raw materials used in our soil blends.”

“Working through these 100 installations has been great,” said Robert Lando, CEO of AgriNomix. “While every installation was different, we simply took stock of each grower’s existing machinery, then our 3D design team worked up an implementation plan that incorporated the HydraFiber Processing Unit within the available footprint. Our field service technicians were key to incorporating both new and old machinery into fully integrated systems. We are very grateful to everyone involved in the first 100 installations, and we look forward to the next 100.”

In addition to these 100 machines, growers are also finding success with HydraFiber’s tower and EZ Blend formulations, which require no specialized equipment. Leading blenders are incorporating HydraFiber into a growing number of pre-mixes as well.
