Thorpe and Rivera know that customer service and support are a must with any piece of equipment, especially a greenhouse. “Jim Bergantz is our rep at ATI and he was incredible,” Thorpe said. “We started literally from scratch here and he definitely taught us a lot. He explained the greenhouse operation to Amy and me, and offered us several options, depending on how we use it. Whenever we have any questions, Jim gets us the right answers promptly, which is instrumental to our success.”

Our relationship with ATI goes back a ways,” Danny said. “We started with John Pound back in the early eighties and it was the first greenhouse we purchased. We have approximately 170,000 sq. ft. at both sites from Coldframes to gutter-connected houses."
"Our main facility is made up of Agra Tech greenhouses. We started with bare land in 1999 and they helped to make our vision a reality!" says Lisa Takao-McCall
"We chose Agra Tech for two simple reasons: customer service and innovation. WN Citrus and AgraTech’s goals are similar. We both pride ourselves on innovation, detail, and commitment to our customers. AgraTech is always listening, learning and delivering."

“Our relationship with Agra Tech is a very good one. Over the years they have been very supportive of our needs and providing us with outstanding customer service. We have built a very positive relationship with the folks over at Agra Tech. They are the leaders in their business, and we are leaders in what we do, so it’s a great match. Together we are fully invested in the success of our customers.”

After performing his research and comparing ATI to other companies, Landreth said his final decision was a no-brainer. “We decided to go with ATI for a lot of reasons and it’s turned out to be a great decision. They represent good value; they use only quality materials and components like Ridder drives/motors and their greenhouses are very competitively priced. They’re well-built and designed, so we’re confident that they will last for many years to come.”
“Building these structures was a very positive process from beginning to end,” Landreth said. “The process of each greenhouse was seamless and drama-free. Ag-Con has constructed all of our ATI greenhouses and they’ve done an incredible job.”

Ingolia also has praise for Agra Tech's customer service and expertise. "From the beginning, James Roberts at ATI was our point person," she said. "He was amazing and was more than willing to help us through every aspect of the planning and construction. It was very helpful to be able to rely on James and tap into his extensive knowledge. We asked a lot of questions along the way and he was always there with the answers."

It hasn't been easy along the way for the Caribe Greenhouse Project. The buildings went through two hurricanes (Maria and Irma) during the construction and according to the company's licensed inspectors and engineers, there was little to no damage to the greenhouses. "The structures were half-built when the storms came, but they held up fairly well, which was impressive," Cabiya said. "They are made with sturdy and reliable components, so they only experienced only a few minor issues."

"With Agra Tech's support and guidance, these greenhouses are now a reality," he said. "The people at ATI are amazing to work with, because this was a nine year journey and they facilitated every step of it. They understand the educational system because they have worked with high schools and universities over the years. Kent Wright really helped us to learn every aspect of the greenhouse industry, from permitting all the way to dealing with issues and problems and troubleshooting during the entire process."

Gill appreciates the service and knowledge that has been provided by the people at Agra Tech. "They don't wing it, that's for sure," he said."They were very good at listening to our needs and concerns and coming up with solutions that work for us. I enjoy working with Jim Bergantz, because he is all about customer service and doing an amazing job."
In order to set themselves up for a bright future, VandenLangenberg and his team worked closely with their Agra Tech’s sales engineer Jim Bergantz. “We started the conversation with Agra Tech back in 2015 and were immediately impressed by Jim Bergantz for his knowledge about the industry. We sat down and put together a plan that had everything we needed. The service that Jim provided was great and he really worked with us to get it done.”

It has worked out well for all of us and it’s a great relationship. Of the 274 greenhouses we have, all but 19 of them are from Agra Tech. Jim Bergantz, our rep from Agra Tech sells them to us; John Pound advises us: Anita Pound helps to engineer the structures and Ray Pound’s company Ag-Con in San Jose, CA does all of the construction. The people at Agra Tech are easy to work with and every time we’ve gone to them with requests, design modifications and things like that—they’re always willing to make it happen for us.

James Roberts at ATI was instrumental in assisting us in every aspect of this project. The support was outstanding, because James has a lot of knowledge and we tapped into it during every phase. He implemented our specs in the drawings we were provided and he was able to sort through everything. He became an important part of this project and we're extremely happy with the role he played.
Now that the Caribe Greenhouse Project has been a success, Cabiya and his team are looking to build even more greenhouses. "The Agra Tech greenhouses that we acquired are excellent and the company is great, so when the time comes, ATI will be a part of our next expansion."

We really appreciate working with a company like Agratech, a company integrated by people who care about their customers, forming a great team. I am personally very glad to have chosen Agratech and hope to keep working with you guys in our future projects.

With Kira Construction building the greenhouse and Jim Bergantz providing the customer support, Aschbrenner knows that he is in good hands, he said. "Agra Tech is providing us with this amazing structure and we're working with Micro Grow for the heat and cooling controls. I found out that Jim Bergantz comes from a family of flower growers just like me, which is excellent. He has a lot of knowledge and experience, so we're delighted to be working with him and all of the people at Agra Tech."
This greenhouse is only the beginning of an ongoing relationship with ATI and AgCon that could last for many years. "The marketplace for greenhouses is really taking off, so the game plan is for us to work more with ATI on additional structures after we complete this one," Sawyer said. "We want to pursue this as much as we possibly can, because this technology is becoming so sophisticated and it's only going to grow from there. Before I was working here, I was building clean rooms for 25 years for electronic and pharmaceutical companies, and many of their synergies are very similar. When you take things such as air changes and temperature envelopes into account, both industries are very precise and the end results are indicative of that."

Sunridge Nurseries is excited to announce that it has embarked on an expansion project that will increase their overall production area by an additional 7 acres of greenhouses and shade houses. These state of the art, Agra-Tech solar light ranges will come equipped with the latest technologies in greenhouse climate and irrigation controls. By incorporating higher gutter heights, ridge roof vents and internal shade curtains, coupled with energy efficient double wall polycarbonate coverings, we expect to shorten our crop time on potted grafted vines and do it with fewer energy inputs. Other features include the addition of HAF fans and light diffusion in the polycarbonate coverings which will allows us to grow at higher crop densities without sacrificing plant quality.
The expansion project will increase our overall capacity by 2 million potted vines under a protected insect free environment. This, along with all concrete flooring and roadways throughout the entire project and our continued use of all metal benching, will help to provide for a more disease free growing area. The ability to wash down benches, floors and walkways with disinfectants both before and after vines move thru the facility is a critical step in keeping the vines free of unwanted diseases.

It was a pleasure to speak with you today about our order for 10 Thermolator 30 Code Greenhouses today. As I mentioned on the phone, we LOVE your houses. We have looked at other models over the years, but nothing comes close to the Thermolator 30 in structural intregity and durability. This is very important in our climate, where wet, heavy snows have knocked down lesser houses in our nursery, before we began buying your products approximately 20 years ago.

They were terrific. I guess I pretty much dealt with everyone there at Agra Tech at some point. Everyone was super friendly and really helpful. Jim Bergantz was a great proprietor on this project and he got back to us promptly every time. Anita Pound and James Roberts, their technical guy, was exceptional. They have so much knowledge and they’ve been doing this for so long that that working with them was a no-brainer.
“The team at Agra Tech met the challenge and did a great job from start to finish,” Thomson said. “The completed house system is state of the art with fully integrated & automated controls for all operational aspects; fan speeds, lighting, cooling system, shade curtains and includes a PC based program interface that provides for monitoring system performance and set up. When small build issues arose, as they will, the Agra team stepped up and responded quickly to resolve the challenge. The new greenhouse represents a significant jump forward for Lundberg Family Farms not only in the overall system but also in the Head House space that was custom created for our own team. Agra Tech and Ag-Con worked in conjunction with our General Contractor to tie in a custom head house built by our general with a state of the art Green House, they did an excellent job.

“The team at Agra Tech–from their customer service people all the way to their engineers–possess a lot of experience and knowledge about every aspect of the greenhouse growing industry and that is why they are our exclusive provider of greenhouses,” Jim said. "Agra Tech is very active all over the country, helping greenhouse farmers and attending all of the industry conferences and trade shows that happen every year. We have worked closely with the Pound Family and Jim Bergantz and I can say without hesitation that they are among the best in the industry.”
Bracken is delighted with the project and happy to be working with Agra Tech again. “We go way back with Agra Tech and all of our greenhouses are from ATI, so when the time came for us to discuss this project 18 months ago, ATI was the only company we considered,” he said. “We are very happy with them and their entire team, because they bring so much knowledge and design skills to the table.”
“We work closely with Jim Bergantz, our Agra Tech sales rep and he handles everything well for us. We’re extremely happy working with Agra Tech and that’s why we’ve bought so many greenhouses from them. If we have questions or need something above and beyond from these people, they don’t hesitate to come through for us. Their customer service is exceptional across the board. We’ve worked with Agra Tech on so many greenhouses that we’ve got it down to a science by now.”

"We have worked with Agra Tech and Ag-Con previously, so we’re very comfortable with both companies and know we’ll be getting some of the best service available,” Farris explained. “In fact, Agra Tech has built all of the greenhouses we have here currently, except for the original one that was built back in the 1940s. Working with the Pound family and Jim Bergantz our ATI rep, not to mention all of the amazing folks in their office–it is great to be working with some of the finest and smartest people in the industry today."

Jim Bergantz, our Agra Tech rep, played a huge role with this project and he couldn’t have been more agreeable. One of the best things about hiring Agra Tech is that you also get Ag-Con, which is great. They have done all of the construction for each phase and it has been amazing. Ray Pound and the job foreman, Jaime, are on top of everything and their problem-solving skills have been very helpful.
Bahne talked to three different companies before signing with Agra Tech, he said. “They came back with a plan that was flexible and they we’re really willing to work with us at a reasonable price. We met with them and they helped us adjust the design. What they came up with was very similar to our original design, but they made it much more practical. They thought about things that we didn’t think of and that was a big deal, to say the least!”
We started working with Bob Scavetta until he retired from Agra Tech (after working there for 16 years). Then, we began a relationship with Jim Bergantz. We missed Bob, because he was so knowledgeable, but both gentlemen know the commercial greenhouse industry very well and the information they gave us was exceptional. Jim walked us through the options and helped us to make a series of smart decisions. Jim Bergantz is definitely passionate about what he’s doing and you can sense it immediately. If we ever need a part, Jim knows the solution and will go out of his way to make it happen. They’ve recommended other products and systems for our greenhouses, even though they don’t sell them directly. So, that’s how we know they care, because they’re not all about selling us things. They really want us to succeed, and that’s why we’re happy to be working with them. The customer service at Agra Tech is amazing!

“We are now looking for other projects to do with Agra Tech and Ag-Con. We’ve been blessed to work with these two companies, because they’re attentive, available and are all about finding answers for us. We’re confident that the bugs will stay out if and when they do arrive, because Agra Tech and Ag-Con are helping us to achieve it.”
Since our very first meeting with the Agra Tech team this year, we were very impressed by your ability to take ideas and create them into solutions, raw material into high quality products, parts and pieces into solid structures, greenhouses into ideal environment for agriculture.
Commitment. This is what turns dreams into reality. We wish you and your family a blessed Christmas!
