Thank You for Considering us for your Horticulture Lighting Project!

In today’s competitive market, you need flexibility in your horticulture lighting systems to meet your plant growth goals and to improve your bottom line.  That’s what you’ll get with BML horticulture lighting.

My business partner Randy and I have spent our professional lives designing, managing and implementing cutting-edge lighting systems for horticulture and scientific projects around the world.  We founded BML in order to provide growers and researchers something larger companies can’t offer you:  LED lighting fixtures that have truly customized spectra that meet the exact needs of our clients.  And we do this at the same price as our line of preconfigured spectra.

Randy brings over 35 years of experience to BML as an executive focusing on product engineering, supply chain management, procurement and manufacturing.  As an innovator in electronics and lighting, he holds several patents.  I spent the majority of my career at the largest lighting company in North America, and I was also the VP of Horticulture Lighting at an LED manufacturing company.  At BML, I am focused on creating high Return on Investment (ROI) projects with innovative lighting designs.

A Flexible Manufacturing Process Designed to Create The Fixture You Need…

We’ve created an assembly process that allows us to combine robotics and automation with hand assembly to quickly produce a fixture with any combination of LED colors including white, warm white, red, and blue LEDs, as well as less common wavelengths like far red and UV.  With this flexibility, we can create over 1 billion color combinations in every fixture we build!

But we also wanted our fixtures to lead the field in quality and light performance.  From day one, we decided to assemble our fixtures here in Austin, TX so we could produce a level of quality that’s impossible to obtain overseas.  All of our preconfigured configurations and our customized spectra products are built to order here in Texas. By selling direct to the consumer, we are able to provide prices our competitor’s cannot match. 

And we are committed to only using top quality LEDs from companies like Osram and SemiLEDs, as this has a direct impact on fixture efficiency and longevity.

We Serve Vertical Farms, Greenhouses, Research Facilities and Home Gardeners…

Your fixture is designed to meet your needs whether you are experimenting with photomorphogenesis, building a 200,000 square foot vertical farm facility, or upgrading to LEDs from older lighting systems in search of cost savings and improved yield.

This is why our horticulture clients include large institutions like Princeton University, Vanderbilt University, the US Department of Agriculture and one of the world’s largest growth chamber manufacturers.  At the same time, our flexible manufacturing process allows us to economically manufacture industrial-grade fixtures for smaller greenhouse facilities and even for home gardeners who want to start their spring garden inside while there is still snow on the ground. 

Perhaps most importantly, we offer decades of experience and can help you design your horticultural lighting project so that it exceeds your expectations.  Once we understand your growth goals, we use state-of-the-art 3D lighting design tools to recommend the optimal lighting system for your project.

If you are considering the significant savings that result from switching to LEDs, or if you need a specific spectrum for a lighting project, give us a call at 512-524-7640.  We would love to help solve your lighting problem and show you how we can provide an excellent return on your investment…

Your ROI

Our rugged fixtures provide a Return on Investment (ROI) that is significantly higher than our competition as a result of our lower prices and higher output. BML’s powerful LED fixtures will slash power operating expenses, typically by 50% when replacing fluorescent or HPS. In addition, LEDs emit far less heat than HPS or fluorescent which (depending on your application) can save substantial amounts of money through decreased cooling costs. Use these powerful, super compact fixtures (cross section is approximately 1” x 2”) to save space in both vertical and horizontal growing applications.

The LED Fixture

Our US made fixtures cost less than competitors as a result of a unique process where we use state-of-the-art robotic assembly machines to place the LEDs (for precision and efficiency), but we hand assemble each fixture for durability and quality. We test 100% of the lights we build, and every fixture has a three year parts and labor warranty.

Sleek, Space-Saving Design

Our fixtures are efficiently designed and will save you space. In profile, they are approximately 2' wide and 1' tall—not much bigger than a single fluorescent bulb—which is pretty extraordinary considering the amount of light they deliver.

Built Texas Tough

These sleek fixtures will compliment any environment, but we ALSO build them “Texas-Tough” from a highly-engineered section of extruded aluminum. In addition to the robust metal design, the aluminum doubles as an extremely efficient heat sink to remove the heat from the LEDs without requiring the use of noisy and unreliable cooling fans. The LEDs are protected by a rugged, water resistant polycarbonate cover that protects them from splashes and allows you to easily wipe them clean.

Energy Efficient Grow Lights

Compared to traditional lighting systems, our powerful LED grow lights will typically allow you to decrease your energy consumption by 50%. In fact, most of our customers are able to pay for their new LED lights by using the savings associated with the reduced energy bills and lamp replacement costs. Every day, customers are learning that LED lighting systems have the lowest total cost of ownership compared to any other lighting system. Watt for watt, dollar for dollar, our breakthrough lighting system delivers more light. Period.

Unlimited Customization Options

By building every fixture to order in Austin, Texas, Build My LED is the ONLY company to offer more than 1 billion custom LED color combinations. With our Design It Yourself configurator, we give you real-time charts and metrics for your customized lighting system. In addition to our unmatched color options, all of our LED grow lights are available in 7”, 12”, 24”, 36”, 48', 60' and 72” lengths, and we also offer you the choice of five precision beam angles to deliver the light exactly where you need it.
