It was a big day in South Jersey for the country's largest manufacturer of organic lawn and garden products.
On Thursday, October 11th, local officials gathered for a ribbon-cutting ceremony to officially open the Espoma Company's new headquarters in Millville.
The Espoma Company opened for business back in 1929 selling its first product, Espoma Organic.
Over the last 90 years the family-owned and -operated company expanded dozens of times and now sells more than 48 products.
Officials say the new space will allow the business to continue to grow well into the future.
"The next job for myself and my sister and everybody here is to grow the business so that we can fill it in and continue doing what we've been doing the past 90 years," Jeremy Brunner, vice president, Espoma Company.
