Founded in 1952, EGC entered the controlled environment field with innovative greenhouse controls. Due to demand for more controlled experiments in the 1950's, EGC moved into the plant growth chamber market, then in its infancy. In the early 1960's EGC added controlled environment rooms to its product line. This was followed in the 1970's by the addition of microprocessor controls and lighted biological incubators in the 1980's.
In keeping with its tradition of state-of-the-art technology, the 1990's has seen EGC's introduction of unique new lighting systems and innovations such as EGC's patented Day-Lit line of chambers. EGC now has the world's largest selection of controlled environment products. EGC's equipment is manufactured by experienced tradesmen at the company's Ohio facilities.
