Stover Manufacturing Enters The Horticulture Marketplace

Stover Manufacturing, LLC is now offering a real-time plant tag solution to wholesale greenhouse/nursery growers and garden center retailers in the U.S. The primary product focus is an in-house turnkey roll label system comprised of a printer, software, label substrate, and print supplies.

Stover Manufacturing was formed by three of the industry’s experts on horticulture identification in order to fulfill the particular demand and opportunities that roll labels have for growers and retailers. Stover Manufacturing’s leadership team is comprised of Gary Stover, Mike McClure, and Robert Grooms. Each has decades of experience in the roll label segment.

“We have a unique business model with our dedicated approach to roll labels,” says President Robert Grooms. “Our turnkey system provides competitive edges for customers with flexibility, on-demand, cost efficiency, customization, and back up support and service. We’ve designed a one-stop, real-time tag solution.”

The system’s advantage is its ability to be produced in-house as needed during the plant’s growing and/or retail cycle. This real-time control for growers and retailers eliminates the need for tag inventory and negates waste due to changing dynamics of weather, price, and sales. As added value, information on the labels can be customized by plant variety, price, size, UPC and 2-D barcode, and grower or retailer identity. Tags are available in a range of substrate color. Used in conjunction with appropriate POP, roll tags can lessen the need for picture tags resulting in further cost savings. Production cost savings of as much as 25% versus picture tags can add to the seller’s bottom line or pass along to the retail customer.

“We formed our company because we believe this market niche has potential for sales in the several millions if you have the right product,” says Founder Gary Stover.

Vice President Mike McClure says, “We think we have the right fit with our knowledge, experience, and connections in the industry, our singular focus on a turnkey roll label system, and its benefits for growers and retailers through cost savings and real-time uses.”

Stover Manufacturing, LLC is based in Port Orange, Fla., and sells direct to wholesale growers and garden center retailers in all parts of the U.S. It is dedicated to its customers’ satisfaction through quality products, superior sales and service, and competitive pricing. It is committed to its employees through a Christian workplace environment, fair wages and benefits. Its mission is to be an enduring company, exceeding its current vision for the future.
