Nutrients PLUS selects Eggleston Services as fertilizer packaging vendor
Nutrients PLUS, LLC, headquartered in Virginia Beach, Virginia, has selected Eggleston Horticulture Services at Tanner’s Creek Nursery as a vendor for packaging the company’s fertilizers with natural ingredients. Eggleston Horticulture Services’ employees are labeling and boxing 10 lb bags of fertilizer, and the organization stores the product which is shipped to Nutrients PLUS customers throughout the United States and Canada.
“We are delighted to not only find such a well run organization in Hampton Roads for our packaging and storage needs, but we are also proud to support employment opportunities with work which helps to improve water quality and the environment,” said Nutrient PLUS’s president John Moriarty. “We have packaging vendors in strategic locations near our eight production plants, but we thought it was important to have one near our headquarters as well.”
According to Theresa Wheeler, general manager for Eggleston Horticulture Services, it’s a perfect fit and fills the gap for her employees between the seasonal work they do. The relationship between Nutrients PLUS and Eggleston began prior to this agreement but in the past, the packaging process was strictly for sale within Eggleston’s Garden Center at Tanner’s Creek Nursery.
“To know that our work is serving a much broader community of landscape professionals and lawn centers who want Nutrient PLUS’s fertilizers with organic matter is so exciting”, said Wheeler. “Our staff is so busy taking care of plants, working with employees, and paperwork, we don’t have much chance to get out in the community to find companies which could use our services. Nutrient PLUS came to us and have bent over backwards to accommodate for the unique needs for our rehabilitation facility. It’s just like family the way they come out and talk to our workers.”
The services are provided in Norfolk at the Tanners Creek Nursery. Tanners Creek Horticultural Services opened in 1999, and located next to the Virginia Zoological Park focuses on employment and training opportunities for individuals with disabilities.
