April 21, 2021 – QuantoTech Solutions has begun deployment of a highly scalable, vertical grow system in an unused room of an existing building in Chilliwak, B.C. The grow system can be scaled to fit any existing building or be housed in its own dedicated structure. This system maximizes usable grow space, especially in locations where traditional growing would otherwise be limited.



"The versatility of our system allows us to rapidly deploy in, and access, a wide range of locations be it in small northern or remote communities, underutilized urban space, and everything in between," said Alycia van der Gracht, Founder.
