Connecting with the industry

Supporting Our Industry

You cannot say you fully “service” an industry unless you’re prepared to help support and educate its members for the greater good.
Service is one of our “core values” at The HC Companies. We serve our customers, team members, the communities in which we operate and our industry. We believe in the quality and ingenuity of our products and look for opportunities to provide our industry with information and inspiration to help us all grow together.

A “Go-To” Resource for Containers

About a year ago, The HC Companies donated planting containers and flats to the Plant Growth Facility at Purdue University – Department of Horticulture and Landscape (HLA). “As a manager of a research greenhouse facility, I am constantly adjusting our offered plastics to help adapt to new project requirements. The HC Companies has always been a go-to resource for high quality across a wide-range of offered products. They help make our job that much easier,” said Nathan A. Deppe, Purdue University, Plant Growth Facility Manager.

“I produced a long day onion cultivar called ‘Ailsa Craig’ in diverse substrates using the eight-inch pots you sent me. Those eight-inch pots are the finest and we use them all of the time. Thanks again for your support!” added Deppe

Educating the Next Generation of Growers

The HC Companies donated several FiberGrow® containers to Dr. Helen T. Kraus, an Associate Professor at the Department of Horticultural Science at North Carolina State University. Her students have an instructional nursery on campus where they practice cultivating plants and measuring results and were looking for a comparable alternative to plastic containers.

From Dr. Kraus: “My students enjoyed using your fiber pots for their growing project. The pots held up well and plants grew well in them. The root systems of the plants appeared to be larger and more fibrous than when the same plant was grown in a black plastic pot. Thank you for sharing and providing this opportunity for my students.”
