Plantpeddler Announces Expansion Plans

On June 17, Cresco, Iowa-based Plantpeddler will break ground on the second phase of the company’s expansion.

Dubbed Phase 2 Step 2 Expansion, the P2S2 expansion will add an additional 100,000 square feet of capacity to the Plantpeddler operational footprint.

Starting in 1980 with 12,000 square feet, this next phase of growth brings the grower’s total covered space to more than 550,000 square feet.

The next phase includes:

  • Expansion of the support facility with dedicated young‐plant starting area;
  • New state‐of‐the art greenhouse construction;
  • High‐tech automation;
  • New shipping and dock facilities; and
  • Expanded genetics trial garden.

This multimillion dollar project brings Plantpeddler’s investment in infrastructure and equipment at the Cresco locations to over $10 million.
