Conviron Acquires Argus ControlsSource: Conviron

Controlled Environments (Conviron) recently announced that it has acquired Argus Control Systems.

Controlled Environments (Conviron) recently announced that it has acquired Argus Control Systems. Conviron, based in Winnepeg, Manitoba, Canada, designs, manufactures and installs controlled environment systems for plant science, agricultural biotechnology research and other applications. It has small reach-in chambers all the way up to full-scale growth houses. The deal hopes to provide researchers and growers with more flexibility and increasingly powerful tools to drive growth for both organizations in the plant science and biotechnology sectors. Conviron also says the acquisition enhances diversification opportunities into water treatment, aquaculture and energy data management where the Argus platform has already demonstrated its value to clients. Under the new ownership structure, Argus will leverage Conviron’s sales and distribution network to extend its access to new clients, especially in international markets. In addition, both organizations will have the capacity to continue coordinated product development programs that respond to specific client needs and anticipate market requirements. Argus will function as an independent business unit, maintaining its distinct brand and continuing operations at its current location in White Rock, BC, Canada. Alec and Marlene Mackenzie, founders of Argus, will remain in advisory roles.
