Posted in Blender, Blog, rooflite News on November 14, 2017
Landenberg, PA, November 14, 2017 – Skyland USA today announced Amerigrow has joined its nationwide rooflite blender network as an official blender in South Florida. In business since 1995, Amerigrow is a full-service organic recycling facility and provider of environmentally-friendly and high-quality mulch and soil products.
As the premier provider of green roof media in North America, rooflite is excited to expand its nationwide reach with the addition of Amerigrow to its blender network. South Florida is an area of the country that is primed for big growth in the green roof industry in the coming years, and Amerigrow is the perfect partner to help rooflite bring its high-quality green roof soil products to a new area.
For Amerigrow, partnering with rooflite as a blender came about as it saw new demand for rooftop gardens and green space in condo developments in South Florida. “We want to steer people in the right direction for green roofs,” says Dave Tomlinson, Vice President at Amerigrow. “We see so many people making mistakes on these rooftop projects and spending a whole lot of money doing it. We are happy that we can now offer rooflite products, with all the research and technical knowledge that’s gone into them, as the best option for any green roof in our area.”
The rooflite product line fits well into Amerigrow’s core business. Focused on superior quality control, the company manufactures a diverse range of products in their own facilities in an environmentally-conscious way. Its soil operation allows them to blend consistent, quality custom soil and planting mixes with precision, all with its trademark reliability and high level of service. It also has a fleet of blower trucks, which will allow the company to install rooflite soil onto green roofs.
With yet another new blender on board at rooflite, Joe DiNorscia, President of Skyland USA, says the company’s consistent growth in its blender network has been critical to its success. “We value our blender partners and without their expertise and regional knowledge, we could not provide the high-quality service and products we do,” said DiNorscia. “Amerigrow is exactly the kind of long-standing, respected business we want to partner with, and we’re happy to have a blender to serve the growing green roof industry from the Florida Keys to Orlando.”
Amerigrow joins a blender network of more than 20 strategic locations in the Americas as well as three international blenders in key areas of the world. Each blender location provides rooflite products that are regionally sourced, produced and shipped.
