T&R Company Announces Successful Completion of Greenhouse Division Launch

RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif. – Aug. 25, 2008 – T&R Company, a manufacturer of landscape tree boxes, stakes and trellises, and distributor of plastic nursery pots, has announced the successful completion of its Greenhouse Division.  The new division was formed and developed during a special 2-1/2 year project spear-headed by Jack Reid, with the goal of creating a dedicated line of products specifically for the greenhouse and bedding growers in the western United States.  With the project now complete, Reid will remain under contract with T&R as a consultant on an interim basis.

During his tenure at T&R, Reid developed the division’s product line and trained the sales team to the unique aspects and needs of the greenhouse and bedding growers.  Under his direction, the division grew to include a comprehensive offering of a wide variety of indoor greenhouse pots, including azalea pots in sizes from two to 14-inches, standard pots in sizes from four to eight inches, a variety of hanging baskets, flats and trays, shade cloth and groundcovers.  The Greenhouse Division was also the first-to-market a thermoformed azalea product for west coast greenhouse growers, which saves up to 45% in recycled plastic over traditional injection-molded hanging pot systems.

“My mission at T&R has been fulfilled by establishing a successful platform for greenhouse products,” says Reid.  “It’s been a great experience and very exciting to be part of such a successful launch.  T&R’s dynamic team is now ready to take the greenhouse line to the next level,” he adds.

According to Phil Guardia, T&R President, “with the well-formed foundation established by Jack, our Greenhouse Division has proved extremely successful and is now in an excellent position to continue to grow.  Everyone at T&R wishes him all the best.”
