Plant Products, a member of Biobest Group, has announced the opening of its new U.S. facility in Canton, Michigan. This new facility will allow Plant Products to further supplement their solutions-focused technical sales team with even stronger customer service.

The new location will allow Plant Products’ customer service team to have all members working from the new facility. At the same time, by tripling the warehouse space of its previous U.S. location, the company is able to stock more of the items that customers need, such as synthetic and biopesticides as well as fertilizers and other innovative consumable products, shortening delivery times. The larger warehouse space has also allowed Plant Products to streamline the receiving, packing, and shipping of Biobest beneficial insects and bumblebees, improving its ability to meet or exceed customers’ deliver expectations.

The new facility also has four-times the cooler space which allows Plant Products to store additional biopesticides requiring refrigeration while at the same time potentially extending the shelf-life of these products considerably. “The entire Plant Products team is thrilled to have the Canton facility up and running,” noted Rob Lee, Plant Products’ USA general manager. “I believe many of our customers have already benefited from the additional warehouse and cooler space through the timely service we continue to provide.”
