Metrolina Greenhouse - Flower Power Grows Under A Galvanized Framework

At America's Largest Greenhouse

With more than 130 acres under glass and plastic, supported by corrosion-resistant galvanized steel, Metrolina Greenhouses is the largest single-site heated greenhouse in America and a long-time customer of Galvan Industries. The massive greenhouse uses hot dip galvanizing exclusively for all steel inside the building to protect against corrosion in the moist, warm environment.

Metrolina Greenhouses, Inc. was founded in 1972 in Huntersville, NC. Today more than 620 full-time workers tend 134 heated acres, producing millions plants a year. Spring bedding plants such as impatients give way to summer annuals, followed by the pansies and poinsettias of fall and winter. Metrolina sows, prunes and packs plants bound for hundreds of retailers, including Lowe's, Wal-Mart and myriad independent sellers within a 400 mile radius of Huntersville.

Metrolina was recently named 2010 Grower of the Year by Greenhouse Grower magazine.
