HC Companies Introduces Two New Containers

The HC Companies – is launching two new products product launches designed exclusively for the greenhouse market.

The new 4.5″ Square Quick Lock Pot and 6″ Azalea Pot are currently being produced at the company’s facilities.

As labor challenges and energy needs continue to be an issue for growers, the 4.5″ Square was designed with automation in mind for effortless denesting using automated filling machines. Additionally, HCs Quick Lock trays allow growers to “press and lock” the pots into the tray for a semi-automated solution.

“When designing these pots, it was imperative they be compatible with automation machines. Let’s face it, labor challenges aren’t going away, therefore all similar products need to address this reality,” said Mark Hembree, product manager.

The 6″ Azalea Pot features increased drainage and easily converts to a hanging basket for versatility. This pot also benefits from superior denesting capability and rim strength for filling and spacing in automated environments.

Pre-ordering is now open for delivery in the second quarter of 2019.

For questions, orders or sample requests, contact The HC Companies at 800.225.7712.
