Hort Americas for a healthy and profitable crop

Hort Americas help growers source the materials they need to build and operate greenhouses in Canada, USA, Mexico, and the Caribbean. Along with their parent company Horticoop, they offer products and services that add up to a selection of over 70,000 different items.

The company has been designed to offer greenhouse vegetable growers, as well as greenhouse growers of other niche crops, everything that they need to grow a healthy and profitable crop. This includes: Cropping Accessories, Substrates, Irrigation Supplies, Greenhouse Structure Accessories and Environmental Control Management Tools.

Due to the economic situation Hort Americas recently started providing information on used products. Chris Higgins, General Manager at Hort Americas said "there is a big demand for used products, however finding used products for the North American market has proved more difficult. Used equipment is selling very quickly and at good prices." He says the main reason for this is Capital. The economic trends have changed the growers' ability to invest in their companies.

Hort Americas has put special emphasis on the Mexican market, Chris said this is going well, growing slowly, "which is just how we want it for the time being".

The company is able to set its self apart in the market due to access to a wide variety of supplies and expert advice and information. As for the future, Hort Americas is currently reviewing many niche options.
