T&R Company Names New Western Oregon Sales Representative

RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif. Feb 9, 2015 – T&R Company, a manufacturer of landscape tree boxes and a leading distributor of plastic containers for wholesale nurseries and greenhouses throughout the western United States, has appointed Courtney Lewis-Borts to the position of Western Oregon Sales Representative.

Prior to her new position, Courtney served as T&R’s Branch Manager for the company’s office and stocking warehouse in Woodburn, Oregon. In that position, she supervised operation of the 13,000 square foot facility and worked closely with the outside sales team.

“My former position as T&R’s Branch Manager really gave me a good understanding of operations and inventory control, which is proving very helpful in my new sales position,” says Courtney. “It’s great to now meet in person all the T&R customers I have been speaking with on the phone these past three years!

Courtney learned about the nursery industry at a very young age through her grandfather’s greenhouse business, P&M Gardens Services, in Eagle River, Alaska. There she was exposed to every aspect of the commercial greenhouse business on the 200,000 sq foot complex that included bedding, potted plants and seasonal crop cultivation. After those early years of training with her grandfather, she gained 10 years of horticulture experience, both in the growing and operational aspects of the business doing Interior and Exteriorscaping at a well established landscape company. She was also Head Propagator for vegetative annuals with Fessler Nursery Company. In addition to her work history, she has served on the Oregon Association of Nurseries (OAN) Greenhouse Chapter Board.

“Getting a really early foundation in the greenhouse industry has been a precious resource to me years later and even today,” says Courtney. “In my new role, I will work to make T&R the main supplier to our regional customers for all their horticultural needs. I am also determined to provide exceptional customer service from time of sale, through delivery and follow-up. Good customer service is what is really appreciated and I am fully capable of delivering that to T&R’s customers!”

According to Phil Guardia, T&R President and Owner, “Moving Courtney into sales for our Oregon area was a natural transition. Her three years working as T&R’s Woodburn Branch Manager, combined with her lifelong, stellar greenhouse record, offer a wealth of information that our customers find invaluable.”
