On The Move!

Our Allamuchy facility, over 310 acres of prime New Jersey farmland, was purchased to house a 90,000 square foot greenhouse, and a 25,000 square foot warehouse. A year later, the first plants were produced and shortly after an additional 130,000 square feet of greenhouse was added. By March of 2005, production at the Allamuchy facility was completely automated including sowlines, transplanting, fixing and table movement.

In 2006 and 2007, the next generation of the Van Vugt family became full-time employees of the Company after having worked at Plainview part-time while finishing up their college education. In 2006, Joe Van Vugt was named General Manager of our Allamuchy facility overseeing all operations at that facility. In 2007, Tom Van Vugt was named Director of Sales focusing on increasing sales of existing products while heading up the introduction of new products into the marketplace.

 

Founded On Family

In mid-2007, the Company made the decision to add orchids to our product line. Through agreements with Taiwanese suppliers and an extensive marketing effort, the Company has made significant penetration into the supply chain for Phalaenopsis orchids through the eastern seaboard and other parts of the country. Plainview Growers is one of three Phalaenopsis growers awarded the license to produce color infused orchids.

Today, Plainview Growers has expanded to achieve a deep level of penetration into supermarket chains, box stores and various floral businesses like 1.800.Flowers. In 2012 a second expansion at our Allamuchy facility commenced. In June 2013, another 152,460 square feet of greenhouse was completed with the Pompton Plains facility becoming an orchids only production/shipping center. All other product lines were relocated to Allamuchy.
