Exciting Announcement!

It is with gratitude that we are announcing the expansion plans of Multi Shelter Solutions in 2022.

Through the dedication and hard work of the staff in combination with the trust and loyalty of our customers, we have outgrown our facilities.

After 17 years, this will be an opportunity to start with a clean slate. By building according to our needs, we will be able to serve our customers better and work with greater efficiencies.

By building with a vision toward the future, there will be an even greater possibility for expansion.

I am grateful that the Town of Minto Council shared our vision for the use of the new property and chose our proposal.

It will be a very busy year with a lot of excitement.

The benefits of going to a bigger structure

What are some of the benefits of going with a bigger structure over a smaller structure?

Budget often dictates that someone needs to start small, especially when a person is just starting out as a grower with a greenhouse.
There is also the perceived notion that staying smaller means less heating cost. In itself, that is true, since heat loss is in direct proportion to surface area exposed to the outside.

As I have mentioned before, it is very important to weigh expense
against return.

A smaller air volume has less natural circulation.
Proper air circulation for plants is critical regardless of the season.
Think of a deep pond versus a shallow pond. The deep pond never has algae on the surface because of the increased movement.

Going with a taller greenhouse will automatically increase the circulation the same way.

Another point to consider with a taller greenhouse, is that there is more open space above the plants.

This open space is where moisture can go, away from the plants even before the greenhouse ventilation system does its job.

With a lower greenhouse, moisture is always in close proximity to the plants. In a taller structure, the plants will be dry much sooner.

Moist plants in a stagnant air mass are prone to disease. These plants will, as a result, produce less.

As always, be aware of the bigger picture.
