KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Stuppy Greenhouse, which provides greenhouse design, manufacturing and construction for horticultural growers, retailers and educators, recently added to its sales team with four industry veterans as part of an expansion to allow greater coverage of all 50 states. The new sales hires will join the existing team of five sales representatives to allow more extensive customer service throughout the country.

“We’re excited to announce this expansion of our sales team to nine people,” says company president Matt Stuppy. “Each is extremely knowledgeable about greenhouse growing and all have served as trusted experts who find the ideal solution for their customers."

Stuppy Greenhouse has been associated with the horticulture industry since 1873, and by expanding their coverage, Stuppy can partner with growers nationwide to help provide what they need for success.
