A.M.A. Horticulture Inc. (A.M.A.) is celebrating 40 years of learning and growing. Since opening its doors in the spring of 1982, the family-owned horticulture supply business has grown to become a leading North American supplier, offering custom, innovative solutions for growers in a wide range of areas, including propagation, hydroponics, berries and more.
“After four decades of learning, growing and building partnerships within our industry, we feel more dynamic than ever,” says Connie Bradt-Monsma, who serves as managing director of A.M.A., together with her husband, Rick Bradt. “We’re proud of what our team has accomplished and we continue to be motivated by the enterprising spirit of our customers, who are pushing boundaries and taking the lead in emerging markets.”
A.M.A. is known for finding and creating the right solutions to help customers succeed. Al’s Flower Pouch, the RootSmart propagation system, Thirst Quencher and the A.M.A. 60 growing container for organic greenhouse vegetables are just some of the company’s home-grown innovations. A.M.A. is also known for being a trusted partner, often working with two and now three generations to help operations evolve and grow.
“Learning is the backbone of growth in horticulture. It’s what drives us and our customers to move forward as we reflect on our 40th anniversary,” says Rick Bradt.
A.M.A. will be launching a series of initiatives throughout the year focused on learning and growth. Members of the horticulture community can follow A.M.A. on Twitter and Facebook, or subscribe to the A.M.A. newsletter for details.
“Our vision is to help cultivate the future of horticulture,” adds Connie. “For 40 years, we’ve been investing in this industry and the talented people who work in it, and we’ve seen incredible change and advancement. We want to celebrate that and keep the momentum going by offering learning opportunities to grow forward, together.”
