Pipp Horticulture has acquired the Vineland, Ont.-based GGS Group of Companies. For more than 40 years, GGS has been designing and manufacturing greenhouses and growing environments throughout North America.

“We are thrilled to welcome the entire GGS team to the Pipp family of companies,” said Craig Umans, Pipp president and CEO. “GGS has decades of experience manufacturing greenhouse structures and has become a leading supplier to the horticulture industry. The company has consistently impressed us with its ability to deliver value to its customers, and we look forward to our next phase of growth.”

In recent years, the Walker, Mich.-based Pipp has developed a product line designed to serve the cultivation market. The company has also acquired several companies like GGS to offer the industry a turnkey cultivation solution.

“We are pleased to partner with Pipp as we build an even more expansive platform to serve our customers,” said Leigh Coulter, president and owner of GGS. 

Following the acquisition, Coulter will remain as president and CEO, and operations will remain under the GGS banner. The combination of the two companies will expand Pipp’s position as a provider of commercial grow racks, greenhouse structures and air circulation systems in North America.
