Grand Opening of AAFC London Research Centre - A GGS/JGS Project

The Agriculture & Agri-Food Canada (AAFC) just opened a $10 million state-of-the-art research greenhouse facility in London Ontario, designed in part and built by JGS Limited, and manufactured by GGS. It is the newest addition to the Southern Crop Protection and Food Research Centre (SCPFRC). This research facility will greatly benefit growers, as the work done in this laboratory greenhouse is aimed at improving crop quality, productivity, and disease/insect resistance.

Up to $18.9 million in funding for manufacturers (St. Catharines Standard)

St. Catharines - Several years ago, GGS Structures Inc. in Vineland Station had just bought two companies. It was expanding at a dizzying speed.

The exporting greenhouse structure and parts manufacturer badly needed to update its inventory system. It took an investment of more than $100,000 to make that happen, half of which came through federal grant money to help smaller Ontario manufacturers boost productivity.

Summer 2010 - In a general sense, Coulter runs GGS Structures Inc., a greenhouse building designer for the horticultural and agricultural industries, and Niagrow Systems Ltd., which creates heating systems for greenhouses. Meanwhile, Harrison is still senior management and oversees JGS Limited, which specializes in greenhouses for research purposes at universities and laboratories, and he maintains the day-to-day operations of the overall company. However, GGS is not the type of place that gets hung up on status. “We don’t really use titles. We’re a family business and I’ve grown up through the business doing different jobs, so we all just kind of do what we need to do here,” Coulter explains. Niagrow and JGS were added to GGS during 2009.
