Plant Science Inc. of Gormley, Ont. has been acquired by Winnipege-based BrettYoung Seeds Limited.

“We’re excited about what this means for our ability to better serve the needs of our customers in Ontario and beyond," said Travis Unger, vice-president for BrettYoung's professional turf and reclamation business unit. "It is another indication of our commitment to enabling our customers’ success.”

The combination of Plant Science’s innovation-driven fertilizer and control products business with BrettYoung represents an important step in BrettYoung’s plan to bring its customer-centered, solutions-based model to Ontario golf, turf and reclamation markets. This investment builds on BrettYoung’s 2015 acquisition of Master’s Turf Supply Ltd. and its recent investment in new warehousing and logistics facilities in Clifford, Ont.

Rob Field, president of Plant Science, adds, “The combined team from our two companies operating as one, with our collective portfolio of innovative solutions and a shared philosophy of building meaningful relationships with decision makers, represents an exciting opportunity for our customers.”

For the next several months both Plant Science and BrettYoung will continue to operate as they have in past, and customers are invited to rely on their current sales representative to deliver the same products and service as before. More information about the integration of these two companies will be shared over the coming weeks and months.
