Monrovia has growing operations in Visalia, Calif., Dayton, Ore., and Cairo, Ga. The acquisition will boost total plant production for Monrovia by 15 percent.

“This is an important acquisition to serve our customers east of the Mississippi who will have better access to Monrovia’s Distinctively Better plants throughout the growing season," said Miles Rosedale, Monrovia CEO.  “Having growing facilities closer to our customers in the Northeast will enable them to refill orders on a more complete and timely basis.”

Greg Schaan was named vice president of production for the East Coast, overseeing the Connecticut and Georgia nurseries. Imperial’s sales representatives will work in tandem with Monrovia’s sales team to ensure a continuity of service to their garden centers and landscape customers

Greg Schaan was the Nursery Management Grower of the Year in 2012. Read his story here.
