Integration & Investments Prepare the Grow West® Team for Growth in 2020
By Ernie Roncoroni, President & CEO
As we enter the new year, I can’t help but reflect back on how exciting 2019 was for our company and its history. It was a year of integration and investment. It began with the launch of our new brand Grow West® on February 2. This new unified brand has allowed Grow West to outwardly join our capabilities and grow together as one team. We have appreciated all the support and feedback we have received, and it is our desire to continually exceed your expectations.
The acquisitions and integration of Clark Trucking and Purity Products into the Grow West family was another success for us in 2019. We welcomed all of the employees from Clark Trucking and Purity Products, and I’m happy to say they are still enjoying being part of the larger Grow West team. Their additions have allowed us to broaden our offerings and expand our scale. Our partnership with you is a priority and we are continuing to build a diverse portfolio of services to provide you with distinct value and opportunities. In addition, we have continued to invest in our facilities. Our internal engineering department has added a new office, warehouse and tank farm at our Sonoma location, and we have just begun an expansion of our Woodland retail operation. These two locations have provided exceptional service and these investments will strengthen our capabilities moving forward in these two communities.
I am proud of our team and their accomplishments. They have put forward a significant effort to support you in growing a successful product in a very challenging environment. In 2019 we encountered everything from flood to fire, and helped you plant a crop in the most condensed spring I have ever seen. All of these events and many more forced us to bring our best and not let you down. From the feedback I have heard, it sounds like we exceeded the challenge. If one of our team members has gone above and beyond serving you, I would like to hear it. Conversely, if we ever do not exceed your expectation, I want to hear that directly from you. I have included my contact information below and would welcome you to reach out to me.
We have made a concerted effort to communicate better with you. This quarterly newsletter is one avenue. In addition to the newsletter, please follow us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and LinkedIn. We keep these social media platforms current and you will have a front row seat to follow us on our journey!
As we look at the year ahead of us, I promise you that Grow West is committed to be a true partner to you. Grow West was created to serve you better and 2019 was just the beginning.
