We believe strongly in constant innovation based on the needs and feedback of our customers.

Happy Leaf LED began as an endeavor by our lighting engineer, Victor Zaderej, to develop a state-of-the-art horticultural grow light based on his in-depth expertise with solid-state-lighting.

Happy Leaf LED is a company that produces commercial quality grow lights that help our customers improve the production of their diverse crops.

We don’t just sell lights, we engineer them ourselves from the ground up, to provide optimal results.

We’re committed to providing the highest level of customer service and making ourselves readily available to provide information and answering your questions, no matter if you are growing at home or for a business.

Victor Zaderej & Polly McGann

Zaderej’s early success with the initial design ignited the passion-project that has become Happy Leaf LED. In 2016, Happy Leaf, LLC was officially registered and the adventure began as he and Polly McGann started to share the advanced LED lights with enthusiastic growers.
