Horticulture tech consultant and product designer joins HotBox International team

Industry-leading expertise is being added to the HotBox International team as horticulture tech consultant Steve Edwards brings his experience to product development.

Mr Edwards, Indoor Farming & Research Engineering Manager at sister company CambridgeHOK, will also focus on business development at Hot Box International.

The aim is to use his expertise to add to the products specifically provided for commercial growers and keen amateur and hobby gardeners.

Mr Edwards has more than 10 years’ experience of working in the horticulture sector and has designed and developed systems and solutions for universities, research organisations and commercial horticulture clients. 

He has also established his own successful businesses supplying the sector previously.

He said: “I am really excited be given the opportunity to have an input into the direction of HotBox International.

“The business already offers an innovative and niche range of products and equipment, but the aim is to develop that in future years, expand our network of suppliers and customers and continue to lead the way in terms of innovation in this sector.  I think that is something we can achieve.

Patrick Harte, Head of Commercial at CambridgeHOK, the sister company which is owned by the same directors, said: “Steve’s input into HotBox will be very important as his knowledge of products in the market, and how they are designed and manufactured, can bring real value to our customers going forward.

“As as a highly-experienced horticulture specialist engineer he can help ensure we continue to offer the best products on the market, at the best price.”

What Our Customers Say

“Well I thought I’d help save the planet. Ordered a smaller heat mat from the great people at Hotbox. This will hopefully save on the leccy bill when I only have up to 12 trays of cuttings to keep warm instead of having the whole 3.6 metre length on. A big thank you to Jill Thornton and all the team at Hotbox.”
