SiteOne Landscape Supply opened a new agronomic sales center for the Atlanta area during a ribbon cutting ceremony this week in Doraville, Ga.
The 30,000-square-foot facility officially began operations in late February. The new facility will enable SiteOne to stock up to 880 tons of bagged agronomic material to serve customers who frequently purchase large quantities of fertilizer and control products. This facility also offers a wider assortment of agronomic and control products, including its own private label LESCO products. Landscape tools and supplies, irrigation equipment, landscape lighting and golf course accessories are also available.
“When looking at our agronomic business, we saw an opportunity to deliver a higher level of service to those customers who needed truckloads of product with regularity,” said Doug Black, chairman and CEO of SiteOne. “Our goal is to deliver a world-class customer experience to every one of our customers, whether they buy one bag of fertilizer or a truckload. The addition of these agronomic sales centers will allow us to better meet the demands of our larger agronomic customers with unmatched product availability, service and expertise.”
John Gertz, vice president of category management at SiteOne, leads the company’s agronomic business. He believes that creating this distribution infrastructure is a necessary step toward elevating SiteOne’s position within the Atlanta market, according to SiteOne.
