From grower to gardener, improving our world.


Our Legacy

HC is a culmination of many storied brands in the horticultural container industry including Dillen®, ITML®, Kord™, Amerikan®, and Listo® – all helping to create the innovative company we are today. HC utilizes the latest innovations, resources, and technologies to manufacture our full line of planting containers whether it’s blow mold, thermoform, injection, co-ex, or vacuum formed. Additionally, our sustainable fiber containers are created in a closed-loop water recycling facility to eliminate waste while protecting our environment.



As the industry continues to evolve due to increased labor costs and staffing issues, as well as weather, disease, regulatory changes, and even a more sophisticated customer base, growers deserve a partner who understands their pain points. This industry means as much to us as it does to you, and we’re always on the quest to learn more and do more in order to help the industry and our customers flourish.

Everyone at HC understands that plants only thrive because of the commitment and dedication continuously provided by growers. That is why HC expends so much time and energy in the manufacturing of our growing containers – providing a comprehensive portfolio of products that best aligns with the unique needs and circumstances of what it is you’re growing.
