May 14, 2021, KINGSVILLE – Now well into our second spring of COVID lockdown, it’s clear that gardening is a top hobby of house-bound North Americans (next to making sourdough bread). Talking with our customers and seeing product fly out our door, we know that for many, the 2021 season has been among the best in recent memory. It hasn’t been easy. We know you’ve had to be dynamic, flexible and patient, often going to heroic lengths to make things work. But experiences in 2020 have pushed our industry through and we’re thrilled to see yet another incredibly successful season.

In these tumultuous times, our A.M.A. team has worked hard to keep supplies coming in and going out on time to the best of our ability. COVID-19 has disrupted everything from harvesting raw materials to manufacturing to shipping, resulting in product shortages and price increases industry-wide, with a significant impact on resin-based products. We hope that these disruptions and increases are short-term, but there are no crystal balls. Know that at A.M.A., we do our best to put your needs first by delivering quality solutions at fair prices, no matter what.

We are so grateful for your trust in our team. Thank you for your patience as we’ve navigated unanticipated delays. Thank you for your flexibility as we’ve pulled together alternative solutions and substitutions to ensure a strong program. And thank you for your loyalty, sticking with us as your partner for horticultural success.

COVID-19 continues to put our industry to the test and we are so proud to be a part of this community. As we begin to climb out of this pandemic, A.M.A. is here to support you with the same knowledgeable, trustworthy, solutions-oriented service you have come to expect from our team.

-Connie & Rick Bradt, Managing Directors, A.M.A.
