Horticulture distribution company Griffin has expanded its independent retail garden center distribution business to the West Coast. This expansion was made possible by leveraging Griffin’s newly established facility in Portland, OR.
This move comes in response to recent developments within Central Garden and Pet, which presented Griffin with a unique opportunity to acquire more than 50 years of retail experience through its well-respected sales representatives. This acquisition of expertise and insight into the retail garden center industry aligns with Griffin’s dedication to enhancing its product offerings and services.
“We are thrilled to announce the expansion of our independent retail garden center distribution business to the West Coast,” says Andrew Barry, Managing Director of Griffin Greenhouse Supplies. “It is exciting to bring our 75 years of experience servicing the East Coast to garden centers west of the Rocky Mountains. We look forward to developing new partnerships and servicing the retail lawn and garden segment on the West Coast.”
The expansion is a significant step towards strengthening Griffin’s position as a premier provider of horticultural products and services across the U.S. By combining the extensive industry experience of Central Garden and Pet sales representatives with Griffin’s established legacy, Barry says the company is poised to offer an unparalleled level of support and expertise to independent retail garden centers in the region.
