RoKon reverse osmosis system featured in Greenhouse Canada Magazine

Our RoKon Reverse Osmosis system was recently featured in Greenhouse Canada Magazine. The article (below) highlights one of our customer success stories: Singh Greenhouses. Our water experts recently exhibited at the Canadian Greenhouse Conference in Niagra Falls, Canada. Nestled on 12 acres of land between Hamilton and Guelph, Singh Greenhouses is one of Ontario’s leading hydroponic English cucumber operations. There was only one issue holding back this budding operation: its hard groundwater source. “Greenhouses need nutrient-rich water. As a result, a hard water source poses a lot of challenges in hydroponics,” said Dr. Ghulam Mustafa, manager and grower, Singh Greenhouses. …Read More

Kontek will exhibit at the Canadian Greenhouse Conference

  Next month, on October 8th and 9th, our water experts will promote RoKon reverse osmosis technologies at the annual Canadian Greenhouse Conference in Niagara Falls. Kontek’s RoKon design delivers low cost, purified, bacteria-free, and softened water while reducing energy requirements and overall water consumption. In fact, Singh Greenhouses in Ontario recently reduced its wastewater reject by 60 per cent, which allowed the hydroponic farm to lower pumping costs by 20 per cent while consistently meeting compliantdischargelevels limits. Attendees can learn more about Kontek’s water treatment solutions at booth 952 at the Scotiabank Convention Centre.

This year, however, we have decided to try something new. For the first time, we are …Read More

Kontek unveils new, rebranded website

Kontek unveils new, rebranded website Since 1980, we have been committed to driving innovation at Kontek. Although we are constantly honing our approach to engineering, we needed a unifying brand and online presence that kept pace with our advanced technical capabilities. As a result, we hired a marketing consultant and initiated an extensive rebranding process in early 2013. Throughout the process we were encouraged to look deeply into our brand, our technologies, our people, and the strong relationships we’ve fostered with our customers.
