Quick Plug North America Names New Managing Director

Quick Plug has announced a change in leadership as Bill Maartense expands his role to managing director for North America.

With more25 years of industry experience, Maartense has most recently served as Director of Quick Plug Canada (formerly Omni Growing Solutions) since its inception in 2010.

Quick Plug North America includes two locations: a facility in South Portland, Maine, and a facility in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, Canada.

Last year, the rooting substrate companies of Grow-Tech Inc. in the United States, Quick Plug in the Netherlands and Omni Growing Solutions in Canada, re-branded under the Quick Plug name to form one independent group that operates in the global market.

With a network of specialized production and distribution facilities, Quick Plug is positioned to service commercial growers and wholesalers worldwide. The collaboration brings together 75 years of combined knowledge and experience, allowing Quick Plug to offer a wide variety of product ranges and formulations for the cultivation of young plants.

“Moving forward, it is our vision to be a dominant force in bonded media production,” says John van der Maarel, CEO for Quick Plug Global. “By placing Bill at the helm of our efforts in North America, we are able to centralize our resources and provide our customers with top-quality products in a timely fashion to become a preferred supplier for bonded rooting substrates.”
