Altman Plants continues their collaboration with TTA USA, LLC by ordering four PackPlanter Wireless transplanters
Altman Plants has chosen for further automation of their facilities by ordering new equipment from TTA. This expansion allows them to achieve a higher production capacity, decrease labor costs and to improve the quality of their plantings.
TTA and Altman Plants have had a partnership for several years now. Altman Plants invests highly in the automation of their facilities to keep their company in a leading position. Through the years, the company has transformed into a wholesale nursery business encompassing over 3,000 acres in seven states. Altman Plants services many leading national retailers, supermarkets and independent nurseries.
The order at TTA consists of four PackPlanter Wireless Split 48’s with gripper cleaning stations and automatic tray loading systems. They have chosen the PackPlanter Wireless because of the high-speed, up to 60,000 plugs per hour and the flexibility of the individual driven plant grippers. It allows them to transplant into trays, packs or pots in shuttle trays.
We are delighted that Altman Plants chose again for TTA to expand their production capacity and are looking forward to put the new equipment in operation around November 2019.
