Samoa and Petaluma, Calif., August 8, 2018— FoxFarm Soil & Fertilizer Company, one of the largest brands of growing media and nutrients in the indoor gardening market, and Hydrofarm, LLC, the leading independent wholesaler and manufacturer of hydroponics equipment and horticultural products—two of the indoor growing industries’ most popular and oldest suppliers, will continue to expand their longtime strategic partnership in servicing the independent marketplace. In addition, FoxFarm’s expansion into the Canadian market along with Hydrofarm’s previously announced acquisitions of Eddi’s Wholesale Garden Supply and the distribution division of Greenstar Plant Products, will ensure availability of FoxFarm products throughout North America.
“Our industry has seen unprecedented changes over the last several years. Consolidation through mergers and acquisitions of many long standing manufacturers and distributors has necessitated FoxFarm to make the strategic decision to focus on serving independently owned distribution companies and retailers alike. We believe it’s critical for growers to have product optionality to successfully run their business and to maximize their harvest. We are pleased to continue our strategic partnership with Hydrofarm to further grow our business and to continue to provide growers with the finest quality garden products available anywhere,” stated Willy Winer, CEO and President of FoxFarm.
According to Cowen Group research, the U.S. hemp market is expected to generate $75 billion in sales by 2030, creating significant long-term demand for hydroponics equipment and horticultural products as indoor hemp cultivation continues to become increasingly precise and scientifically-driven.
“We believe that much of the growth of hydroponics and the indoor growing industry will be driven by the increased legalization of medical and recreational hemp markets in North America. With nearly twenty years of shared history, Hydrofarm is proud to take the lead role in advancing FoxFarm’s strategy to provide their products across the hydroponic retail and expanding commercial grow segment. We are increasing FoxFarm product availability and support to ensure that their wide array of growing products are front and center for our customers across the continent,” said Hydrofarm CEO Peter Wardenburg.
