Cincinnati, OH, USA - January 30, 2013 -- Rough Brother Inc. is absorbing the Golden Pacific product line. Rough Brothers Inc. and Golden Pacific structures of Redlands, CA, have agreed to merge their products under the Rough Brothers Greenhouse line. The two companies, each with strong reputations for quality commercial greenhouses, have been partnered and competed for years in the greenhouse business.
In the past six months, Rough Brothers has rolled Golden Pacific and XS Smith products into their Commercial Greenhouse Division. Combining the XS Smith & GPS products with the Rough Brothers products allows the widest offering of light & heavy structures in the market. Rough Brothers Greenhouses, the largest greenhouse manufacturing company in North America, acquired the XS Smith, Inc. in late 2012. The XS Smith Sunlite, Stormlite, Econobuster & Criteria gutter connect will be accompanied with the GPS 5000 & 6000 series of hoop and gutter connect products.
Gary Baze has been named Sales Manager of Rough Brothers and will manage the national sales force for Rough Brothers Commercial division. The consolidation of these products will better position Rough Greenhouses in all markets. Together, the companies will offer nurseries and growers a unique breadth and depth of technology and service to meet their greenhouse design and technology needs.
“Rough and GPS together will create the most innovative and comprehensive greenhouse designs to meet the needs of commercial growers and enable us to better serve our customers,” said Tom Vezdos, head of the commercial division at Rough Brothers Inc. “This merger will take our designs, products and services to the next level. Together, we will be a more attractive and exciting company for our employees, and a more resourceful partner for our customers.”
