Bradenton, FL (May 31, 2014) – VIZCO-US (VizCo) is pleased to announce the firm’s relocation to Bradenton, in conjunction with the launch of the firm’s revolutionary container gardening system, SimGar: The Simple Garden.
In January 2014, VizCo purchased the facility located at 3500 9th Street West, Bradenton for its new office headquarters and exclusive SimGar retail store and product showroom. The new headquarters are a 25,000+ SF facility, substantially larger than the building previously leased by the company.
The SimGar showroom will officially open to the public during a two-day Grand Opening Celebration on Friday, June 6 and Saturday, June 7 from 8am-5pm. All gardening enthusiasts are invited to learn more about SimGar and will be treated to special giveaways, exclusive promotions and SimGar demonstrations, as well as free food and beverage.
In the near future, the showroom space will also function as a local gardening ‘hub’ for information, gathering space, gardening clinics, produce market, and more. The 6+ acres on which the new VizCo headquarters is situated affords plenty of space for dozens of SimGars to grow a multitude of farm-fresh vegetables, fruits, and herbs.
“As a Bradenton resident for over 30 years, I’m thrilled for the opportunity to invest in the economy of our community. Our company believes strongly in the growth potential of the Bradenton area,” stated Chris Cantolino, President and Founder of VizCo. “SimGar, our flagship line of consumer products, has already begun to attract to the Midtown Manatee district customers from all over the Tampa Bay region. We appreciate the pro-active assistance we have received from Manatee County Government and the Rapid Response Permitting Program to help us get up and running as quickly as possible”.
“VizCo’s continued investment in expanding business operations in the Bradenton area is welcome news,” said Sharon Hillstrom, president and chief executive officer of the Bradenton Area Economic Development Corp. “The Bradenton area has a long history of innovation in agricultural technology. VizCo’s SimGar system is poised to become part of that legacy as the company sells the product outside the local market, bringing new wealth into the community. Such ‘value-added’ businesses are essential to creating a more diverse local economy.”
