Tozer Seeds America celebrates their 10th year of business this month. A subsidiary to Tozer Seeds Ltd. which is headquartered in Cobham, UK, the U.S. division opened its doors for business in 2007. Tozer Seeds expanded their distribution and sales operation to the U.S. and opened an office in Santa Maria, Calif. and since then has seen tremendous growth.
Tozer Seeds America started their inception with only four full time employees and has grown to six full time employees, expanding their footprint into the east coast by hiring a sales representative in May of 2013. The company has been profitable ever year of its existence, attributing sales growth to a robust nationwide dealer network.
“Tozer Seeds America has become an integral part of the global direction of Tozer Seeds Ltd.,” says Kraig Kuykendall, sales manager of Tozer Seeds America. “We expect to only see more innovation and growth from the U.S division.”
As a niche breeding company, Tozer has introduced hybrids with better shelf life, yield and fruit quality.
