This transaction came as a result of the $1 Million Revenue Contract
with co-marketing partner Sweet Leaf Hydroponics,
a contract signed less than one month ago.
SACRAMENTO, CA — (March 3, 2017) Zerez Holdings Corporation, (OTC PINK: ZRZH) announced today that its subsidiary Next Generation Farming, Inc. has received a purchase order, and payment in full for six, 30’ x 120’ ‘Quick Deploy Systems’, totaling 21,600 sq ft of “SMART by Design™” systems to be delivered on, or before, March 31, 2017. Citing strong positive feedback from recent client tours of Next Generation Farming’s demonstration facility, Sweet Leaf Hydroponics President Jay DeSalvatore stated “Clients are very impressed that this company has real, working facilities that are run by knowledgeable people who show clients exactly what they are going to get. There is no substitute for an in-person demonstration for an investment of this size, and we are very pleased to be partnered with Zerez Holdings Corporation and Next Generation Farming, Inc.”
The deal underlines Zerez Holdings and Next Generation Farming’s firm position in the rapidly expanding smart greenhouse market, where estimated revenues of $6 billion are forecasted in 2017.
Zerez President John Taylor said “Leveraging Sweet Leaf Hydroponics’ strong retail presence and vast customer base expands our resources to continually reach out to our ideal client. The investment we made in demonstration greenhouses provides us great exposure, shows potential customers that we know our product, and provides an environment for constant customer feedback which allows us to continually improve our designs and efficiency”.
Next Generation Farming recently made the decision to begin manufacturing major components in-house with the assistance of a Northern California manufacturing partner. According to Vice President Don Smith, “The move was precipitated by delays in material deliveries from existing greenhouse manufacturers who simply cannot keep up with our orders and demand. I do not know whether they see us as a major competitive threat, or, are simply not prepared to capitalize on this market the way we are”. John Taylor added, “We know the smart greenhouse market needed a way to reliably produce greenhouses at an ever-increasing rate and now we can do just that. The smart greenhouse market for both food and cannabis expands daily, and we are determined to be the preferred provider and hold a significant piece of that market share”.
