ZA Group's 60% acquired E-Roots Manufacturing is expanding its production facility to accurate its accelerated 2022 growth.
Since the Company commenced offering assistance on obtaining USDA loans and compliance through its USDA consultant on April 13, 2022 to vertical farming system inquires, many orders have been in process on being closed both domestically and internationally. To efficiently facilitate the anticipated orders, ERM expanded its facility into Red Deer, Alberta. The facility is now strategically located midway between Edmonton and Calgary along the Queen Elizabeth II Highway, which is Western Canada's busiest transportation corridor. Significant investments into infrastructure have led to an excellent supply chain network, as well as strong transportation links throughout Canada and the United States.
Small business farmers have historically shown the most interest in the ERM's flagship product, the vertical farming module to start or expand their business. However, over the past several months, ERM has experienced widespread interest from larger entities from, restaurants; schools; universities; corporations; and non-profits. Within the past year ERM has received over 15 orders for its vertical farming module while ERM's partner company, E-Roots Systems, Ltd. ("ERS") works with major institutional food service providers. By focusing on this channel, ERS and ERM strives to bring the vertical farming module to more communities, spreading sustainable farming methods to a broader audience and providing food security.
ZAAG's President, John Morgan comments with, "I am excited and pleased to see the growing interest on our vertical growing systems. We are now positioned to fulfill the many orders we are anticipating on receiving deposits to commence manufacturing. A few of the orders that we are anticipating include multiple farms in an Indian tribe within the U.S. and Australia. The orders in cusps of closing do not include the over 10,000 inquiries we have yet commenced to reach out to due to our current large orders being made. In regards to our two March venial system orders, we are still on track on delivering within the next few weeks. I look forward on sharing more updates as we progress."
