    Message from our CEO to our Clients & Partners
    COVID-19 Preparedness

    March 20, 2020 | Winnipeg, MB, Canada
    I’m Steve Kroft, the CEO of the CEL group, the parent company of Conviron and Argus Controls. I want to update you on the state of our operations in light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

    Our first priority is the safety of our employees and our communities. Like you, we are heeding the advice of medical experts. Approximately 85% of our non-production workforce across our sites is now working remotely from home, and our production personnel are operating under strict social distancing guidelines. We have implemented a number of measures to ensure that our premises are well-sanitized and our employees are practicing excellent personal hygiene.

    Despite these challenging times, our business is carrying on remarkably well. Our design engineers, software specialists and service technicians have the tools necessary to work remotely and continue to work on your projects and provide service support. We have a robust schedule of virtual meetings allowing us to advance your projects efficiently. Our Sales engineers are fully engaged in working with our clients to sort through specifications, provide quotations, and answer questions. And our supply chain remains largely in tact. Our team is energized and working at a high level.

    We are proud of our work, and of our commitment to providing researchers and high value producers with the solutions you need to ensure that we can all benefit from a healthy and robust food supply, improved human health, and a healthier planet. At no time in the 56 years since my father founded Conviron has this responsibility been more acute than it is today. Many of you are working tirelessly to solve our grand challenges, and we are certainly facing one of those at this moment. Some of our clients are directly involved in racing to develop vaccines and medicines to combat the coronavirus.

    The purpose of my message today is two-fold. First, to reassure you that your partners at Conviron and Argus Controls are ready and able to provide you will the tools and support you need to carry out your important work. We are doing so while maintaining a safe and healthy work environment for all of our staff. The second purpose for this message is to thank you. Not only for the confidence you continue to show in us, but more importantly, for all the work you do to make our world a healthier, safer and better place. For this we are especially grateful.

    Thank you, and stay healthy.

  • LED Lighting for Plant Growth Chambers & Walk in Controlled Environments Play all

    More and more, plant scientists are integrating LEDs into their research programs to meet their needs for a specific light spectrum and to reduce the operational cost of their plant growth chambers and controlled growth environments.

    Integrating best of breed technologies, Conviron offers preconfigured LED lighting options and we work extensively with clients to develop customized solutions to suit specific research requirements.

    With multiple suppliers of LED technology available, researchers can select from a variety of solutions to best suit their research objectives, considering factors such as:

    Light Source - LEDs can serve as a primary source of light, or to supplement other light sources with blue or red/far-red wavelengths.

    Spectrum - narrow band or continuous wide spectrum LEDs can be used to deliver a unique light spectrum to plants.

    Adjustability - fixed spectrum LEDs can be used in combinations of fixtures to create a blended spectrum within a controlled environment. Variable spectrum LED systems allow the researcher to control spectral composition by adjusting the intensity of individual LED color channels within the fixture.

    Intensity - LEDs retain their spectral profiles when dimmed, providing consistency in spectrum as researchers adjust intensities throughout the light cycle.

    Environment - unlike fluorescent bulbs, LED output remains vastly more stable as chamber temperature decreases, providing consistency in spectrum for a wide range of temperatures.

    LEDs are an energy efficient light source for plant research in controlled environments. LEDs direct all their light toward the plant without the reflectors required by other light sources that emit radially. While LEDs emit significantly more light per unit of input energy than fluorescent bulbs, they also produce less radiant heat, and can therefore be placed closer to plant material. With less waste heat, the cooling requirement for the controlled environment is diminished and the total energy used by an LED-equipped chamber is substantially reduced.
