PlantTape USA Facility Update
We are happy to announce that we have successfully completed the construction of our California manufacturing facilities. This was the first of three steps to making this technology commercially available in the United States. Our first USA customer, Tanimura & Antle, has been running their first two acquired transplanting machines all season and has successfully logged over 1,600 acres with our newly manufactured tape. This excludes the previous 4,000 acres they had planted from tape manufactured in Spain.
This season was key to ensuring that we put hours on the manufacturing equipment and ensure to our customers a consistent quality product. We confidently feel that we are getting close to offering the industry a superior option for transplanting and the results in the fields this Salinas season are proving it.
