CrayoNano Expands into Turkey with New Design-in Partner GESAN AYDINLATMA and their brand DEMİRLED for Horticulture

Trondheim, Norway – CrayoNano AS expands our European footprint with a new design-in partnership agreement with Turkey-based GESAN AYDINLATMA VE ELEKTRONİK LTD.ŞTİ a regional leader in the design, manufacturing and selling of LED lighting systems and solutions for water and surface disinfection for agriculture and horticulture, under their brand DEMİRLED. GESAN AYDINLATMA has designed CrayoNano's UV-C LEDs into their products and systems for disinfection of fungi, bacteria and other microorganisms that are harmful to plants. This collaboration marks a milestone for CrayoNano as we continue to expand across new regions and agritech (agriculture technology), aquaculture and smart farming applications for our UV-C LEDs components and technology. 

The utilization of UV-C LEDs for disinfection in food production and packaging can positively impact agritech and horticulture by enhancing food safety and extending food shelf and transportation life. UV-C LEDs effectively eliminate pathogens, including bacteria and viruses, on food surfaces and packaging materials, reducing the risk of contamination and spoilage. This technology supports sustainable agriculture practices by minimizing the need for chemical disinfectants, which can have harmful environmental and human health impacts. By ensuring safer and longer-lasting food products, UV-C LED disinfection contributes to food security and reduces food waste, addressing critical aspects of the UN's Sustainable Development Goal 2. Moreover, this technology can be integrated into various stages of food production, from farm to fork, ensuring that agricultural produce maintains its nutritional value and safety throughout the supply chain. In horticulture, UV-C LEDs can be used to disinfect water and surfaces in greenhouses, promoting healthier plant growth and higher yields. The adoption of UV-C LED disinfection systems offers a powerful solution to enhance food safety, reduce waste, and support sustainable agricultural practices, thus playing a vital role in achieving global food security and improved nutrition.

GESAN AYDINLATMA and their brand DEMİRLED have decades of experience in agriculture and horticulture, providing LED lighting systems that enhance plant growth and food production in Turkey, Eastern Europe and Middle East. In 2022, their innovative DEMİRLED UV LED lamp earned them first prize in the plant protection category at the ATSO Antalya Growtech Agriculture International fair, positioning them as an innovator in the horticulture industry. 

The partnership was the result of successful testing of CrayoLEDs by GESAN's General Manager, Mr. Sıtkı Mehmet Bozbiyik, with his customers and both fully convinced by CrayoNano's outperforming major suppliers of UV-C LED component. "CrayoNano's LEDs are very efficient and powerful. Our tests demonstrated the performance superiority and efficacy of CrayoNano's products, and I am excited to incorporate them in all my products and ongoing and future projects. This collaboration will enable us to offer even more effective and efficient solutions to our customers, enhancing crop yields and sustainability." said Mr. Bozbiyik.

“The expertise and market innovation GESAN AYDINLATMA has in LED lighting systems and technologies, especially in the agricultural and horticulture sector, align perfectly with our mission to deliver high-quality, innovative UV-C LED components into systems to support sustainable agriculture technology that contribute improving global health and bringing food security to all. Together, we aim to drive advancements in plant growth technologies and promote sustainable agricultural practices,” said Stefan Stockbauer Global Sales Director of CrayoNano.

The CrayoNano-GESAN partnership promises to bring groundbreaking advancements in UV-C LED applications, offering enhanced plant growth and treatment solutions and contributing to the future of sustainable agriculture.
