We have three production facilities that supply everyone with the wide variety of Bigelow teas. Our Boise plant has been running strong for the last 22 years in the same location. We started it as a distribution site but due to production needs we located some equipment and gradually it grew into a strong production plant.
The plant has changed over the years with different equipment and production rates, but our strongest asset has been our employees. Our average tenure is 10 plus years in this location and with that amount of experience our employees’ care and knowledge of the product is second to none.
I try and get out to the plants at least quarterly to see what is going on. I talk to our employees about what is happening in the company and I listen to any concerns they might have. They probably wish my visits were less frequent, but we have a good time while I am there.
All of our plants are critical to our present day success and future growth. Boise has consistently been there for us every one of those 22 years, a big THANKS goes out to each and every employee.
