How Greenhouse Technology At North Creek Nurseries Expedites Lean Flow Production

When the management at North Creek Nurseries, Greenhouse Grower’s 2016 Operation Of The Year, made plans to replace 18 hoop houses with a new greenhouse, they envisioned a facility that would make employees’ lives easier, while saving on labor and increasing productivity. The state-of-the-art facility that sits on North Creek’s Landenberg, PA, location does not disappoint. The greenhouse consolidates 54,720 square feet of growing space into an energy-efficient production area. In 2010, the staff at North Creek challenged itself to learn lean flow practices and implement them into its workflow. The centralized workspace and innovative greenhouse technologies incorporated in the new greenhouse design reflect the company’s commitment to helping employees effortlessly transition from one production task to the next with greater efficiency.
