AgTech startup OnePointOne announced the expansion of its corporate and vertical farming production facilities to Avondale.
The 50KSF facility in the Avondale 107th Industrial Park will be home to OnePointOne’s latest indoor vertical farm. The technologically advanced cultivation platform they’re building will use automation, AI and plant science innovations to continue pushing the industry forward.
OnePointOne’s proprietary vertical farming technology uses 99 percent less land and water than traditional agriculture. Also, the process is 100 percent free of pesticides, herbicides, and harmful chemicals. This new facility will act as the production hub for Willo, OnePointOne’s personalized vertical farming service. Willo gives members exclusive access to the farm and its tech through a custom mobile app. The company will look to hire roughly 70 employees across a range of positions. (Source)
