For small and large growers

Portable temperature-controlled grow site launched

The Green Living Company (GLC) and Consolidated Distribution Partners, Inc. (CDP) announced the launch of their co-branded line of portable temperature-controlled solutions for fresh fruit and vegetable end-use.

ColdPICK, a GLC, Brand Cold Chain Material Handling System, and CDP's EZ Panel™ have joined forces to provide complete temperature-controlled cold chain solutions to the fresh fruit and vegetable supply chain by developing the line of ColdPICK EZ58 solutions.

The system utilizes modified EPS Structural Insulated Panels (SIP) combined with cooling and temperature control equipment, resulting in a one-stop 'Grow Site' cooling solution for the large and small growers of medium to high respiration fresh fruits and vegetables. The benefits of ColdPICK EZ58 Grow Site Cooling include reduced time to market, greater cash flow, and dwell time reduction resulting in less weight loss and greater revenue, with improved quality and shelf life. This system's EZ setup and take-down feature allows for multi-uses over geographic seasons, offering a high return on investment.

The EZ Panels™ are specifically designed to meet customer needs, serving as a multi-purpose solution, functioning as structural framing, insulation, sheathing, and vapor barrier, all while saving time and labor costs. "Importantly, these panels feature a thermal break for industry-leading energy efficiency, they are environmentally friendly and are manufactured in the USA," says Jonathan Rabinowitz, President of CDP Builders.

"These lightweight panels offer exceptional insulation (with an R-value of 58) while being waterproof, fire-resistant, wind-resistant, and insect-proof," Rabinowitz commented. "They can support significant weight without requiring heavy machinery for installation. Additionally, the panels will never experience mold, mildew, or insect infestations, and boast a non-combustible assembly."

The installation process is straightforward. The EZ58 System installation is typically completed within a few days using a small crew, is very clean, with no waste, and requires no dumpster or heavy machinery. Faster construction reduces labor costs and financing expenses, especially for income-generating structures, as they can earn revenue quickly.

"The insulation performance leads to ongoing energy savings, providing long-term financial benefits and increased revenue. The cost savings are dramatic, yielding average savings of approximately 25% of total construction costs and 75% of their total energy costs due to the superior installation and insulation," finished Gregory Smith, CEO The Green Living Company, a ColdPICK Partner.
