What started as a small and overlooked market has blossomed into an enormous success because of the many resorts, golf courses and nurseries that have sprung up in Hawaii to service tourism. Ken Findeisen, president of HGP, recounts the growth:
"In 1980 there were just a few golf courses on Maui. Then, just a few years later, everyone's adrenaline started to pump from all the activity - hotels and golf courses were being built. Everything started booming. We started concentrating on supplying the right products for maintaining these landscapes. It was a natural progression for us. We introduced innovative products, such as slow release fertilizers, and it grew from there. Now Hawaii Grower Products is viewed as the leader in this industry. We represent the best product lines for this market."
Like Ken says, Hawaii Grower Products has something rare and valuable - a company that places relationships above price. We value and nurture the relationship we have with our customers as well as our manufacturers. We're all professionals and we work as a team to develop beautiful turf, landscape, and plants.
HGP has remained strong through all fluctuations in Hawaii's economy. How? It's nothing more than HGP's community-mindedness, business integrity, respected relationships, and solid product catalog. Plants naturally grow and HGP merely helps along the way way.
Everyone at Hawaii Grower Products has been involved in Hawaii's horticulture industry for years. Why? For one reason, they love it!
HGP is a locally owned business, committed to improving the industry, the community, and the Hawaiian archipelago at large. We don't have headquarters; our top managers work in the field. We all work as a team, constantly striving to improve our service, solve problems, and assist customers with the best product choices and application.
