It all started over ten years ago (1998), soon after my business partner (Simon) and I set-up a hydroponics trade counter in the UK. We were offering advice to growers from all over the world, and it seemed that many growers had the same complaint: a lot of plant nutrition ranges contained too many products. This was making it difficult for our customers to understand how to get the most out of their plants. Something we wanted to help solve, and why we went into the plant nutrition business.
As Simon is a qualified Biochemist and I had lots of growing experience, we decided to create our own hydroponic nutrient. First of all we hired a team of plant scientists and joined forces with a leading UK university to develop a unique nutrient formula, which is now known as VitaLink Max (two-part nutrient). VitaLink Max underwent extensive testing by the university to ensure that it delivered excellent plant results in a variety of demanding growing situations. We then established rigorous manufacturing processes to guarantee that we could offer a reliable nutrient time and time again.
Over the years we have followed the same professional approach in order to develop a range of nutrients. This means you get to choose how you want to grow, regardless of ability. We have also developed a 'select' range of nutrient additives and enhancers, which are proven to promote optimal plant results. We have now launched a new growing media range. The VitaLink Professional media range has been scientifically tested to ensure the best possible results, maximum yields and disease resistance whether growing in soil or hydroponically. We truly believe that our dedication to research and development, as well as the fact that VitaLink is still a 'slim' range is why it is so popular in the UK, Europe and Australia.
On behalf of everyone at VitaLink, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your loyalty.Ian Stansfield - Managing Director
