News from Griffin

Ellen C. Wells
At Cultivate’18, I ran into Tracey Gorrell of Griffin Greenhouse Supplies. She said she and the rest of the company are really excited that the company, which is headquartered in Tewksbury, Massachusetts, is stretching itself and its distribution clear across the country. They’ll open their new facility in Salem, Oregon, in September.
 
This, their sixteenth facility, will stock hard goods for growers and nurseries, along with select retail products for distribution. They’re on track for September, but Tracey says since their fifteenth facility in Aurora, Colorado, opened ahead of schedule in early 2017, this one may, too. They’ve had reps out on the West Coast and so won’t be jumping into the market without some customers already interested. So if you’re out in the Pacific Northwest, you’ll have one more option. GP
