WOBURN, MA. — Arborjet Inc. has announced that Matt Andrus has taken on a new appointment at the company as Horticulture Technical Specialist. Formerly the Horticulture Specialist for Arborjet, in his new role, Andrus will be responsible for helping to conduct research studies, promoting sales and providing consultations.

“Matt’s work in support of our horticulture line over the past five years has been instrumental in building our business,” said Russ Davis, President and Chief Operating Officer of Arborjet. “We are confident he will continue to deliver beyond expectations for Arborjet in this new, expanded role and accelerate our business moving forward.”

With the recent surge in home gardening – driven largely by a younger generation of environmentally conscious, practical minds – Arborjet identified an opportunity within the horticulture industry to provide eco-friendly plant care solutions. Andrus' background and extensive field experience supports these efforts.

"I take great pride in the innovative work that our research & development team has done for Arborjet, and I look forward to building on those efforts in my new role,” said Andrus. “Arborjet is well positioned this year to tap into a number of emerging markets. I’m excited to continue to educate the community and help in driving those new market opportunities forward for our team.”

Prior to his roles at Arborjet, Andrus was the head propagator and manager of six large greenhouses.
