Agricultural lighting company Violet Gro is gearing up to open its new headquarters in Grand Junction. The company will have its grand opening on Thursday, Feb. 20, 4:00-6:00 p.m. at 2764 Compass Drive, Suite 101. 

Violet Gro has been actively  collaborating with local growers and businesses for the last couple of years, but will now take the next step in officially growing its business in Colorado. 

As a result of being accepted in 2019 into the Colorado Rural Jump-Start Tax Credit program, a statewide economic development initiative created to attract jobs to rural areas, the company will now officially establish its operations in Mesa County with plans to add 4-5 employees to its initial team over the next 12 months. 

Through the Jump-Start program, Violet Gro will receive performance driven tax incentives for bringing its business to the state and making a commitment to job creation, academic engagement and meaningfully adding to the economic base of rural Colorado. 

“We are thrilled to officially welcome the Violet Gro headquarters to Grand Junction. It’s another testament to the Grand Valley and our ability to support tech companies like Violet Gro with the infrastructure and workforce they need to be successful,” says Robin Brown, executive director of the Grand Junction Economic Partnership.

Violet Gro’s patented technology enables its LED grow lights to provide plants with more light and significantly less heat than traditional lighting.  From supplemental to dedicated lighting, Violet Gro has products that will grow healthy plants while simultaneously reducing energy costs. 

“We are excited to be surrounded by the caliber of partners that exist here and can help us continue to advance our lighting solutions and grow our business.  This is exactly why we chose Colorado for our new headquarters.  We look forward to capturing the opportunities that lie ahead of us, and doing so from right here in the Grand Valley,” says Kurt Kucera, president and global head of business development for Violet Gro.
