TWINSBURG, Ohio, Jan. 23, 2019 /CNW/ -- North America's leading supplier of horticulture containers – The HC Companies – is beginning the new year with a pair of product launches designed exclusively for the greenhouse market.
The new 4.5" Square Quick Lock Pot and 6" Azalea Pot are currently being produced at the company's facilities.
"We're incredibly excited to introduce these new products into the market," said Mark Hembree, Product Manager. "We've spent a great deal of time surveying the needs of our customers and adjusting the overall design. We believe the market will share in our excitement once they see the products first-hand."
As labor challenges and energy needs continue to be an issue among growers throughout the country, the 4.5" Square was designed with automation in mind for effortless denesting using automated filling machines. Additionally, HCs Quick Lock trays allow growers to "press and lock" the pots into the tray for a semi-automated solution.
"When designing these pots, it was imperative they be compatible with automation machines. Let's face it, labor challenges aren't going away, therefore all similar products need to address this reality," added Hembree.
The 6" Azalea Pot has updated a perennial favorite among growers. The pot features increased drainage and easily converts to a hanging basket for versatility. This pot also benefits from superior denesting capability and rim strength for filling and spacing in automated environments.
Hembree adds, "We're all incredibly proud of these two releases. These new pots will help growers take everyday tasks and make them simpler and more efficient. But just don't take our word for it, request a sample today and see for yourself."
Pre-ordering is now open for delivery in the second quarter of 2019. For questions, orders or sample requests, contact The HC Companies at 800-225-7712.
