The expansion will facilitate significant growth in lawn and garden product sales across the US and allow integration of future business ventures
The proposed expansion will begin with the construction of an additional 50,000 square foot finished goods warehouse and distribution facility. Plans for the second and third phases include expanded manufacturing and packaging capabilities to bring the total expansion to over 150,000 square feet.
According to Bonide President, Jim Wurz, “Our faith in and commitment to this business has never been stronger. We are taking aggressive measures to keep up with our current sustained growth and to accommodate new opportunities...”
