Suppy Chain, Mooresville, NC - July 24, 2016
The Consumer Products Division is a vendor to Lowe's and Home Depot. Lowe's stated to the Upper Mgmt that they were by far their worst vendor in terms of service. The division does not have the infrastructure to handle the orders and deliver the products on time. They also rely on what is called Co-Packers to produce and fill orders. This basically means they are at the mercy of people who do not work for the company to provide service to their customers. The Upper Management has changed and turned over along with a lot of employee turn over. Since 80% of their business is tied to Lowe's and Home Depot, it is a very unstable situation. The company is basically a Regional provider of mulch and soil products and not a very good one at that. Company also has way too many VP's (4) for it's size.
