We continue to support the professional grower, grower-distributor, retail garden center and mass merchandiser with superior products manufactured with traditional resins and sustainable fibers to secure our relevance in an ever-changing business environment.

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