BURTON, OHIO – BFG Supply Co. is pleased to announce the acquisition of Midwest Horticulture, dba J.R. Johnson Supply, of Roseville, Minn.

Rob Glockner, the president of BFG Supply Co. said “One of the biggest benefits to this acquisition is the positive impact it will have on J.R. Johnson’s customers. The Roseville facility is only 10 minutes from our Minnesota branch, which means will call pickups will be right around the corner from where they are today. Add the expanded product lines we offer as well as access to a larger group of industry experts, and J.R. Johnson customers should see the benefits of this acquisition immediately. We’re excited about this acquisition; we hope J.R. Johnson customers are too.”

Coming on the heels of BFG’s purchase of Wetsel a few months ago, this acquisition is the second made by BFG in the 2011 calendar year. Glockner added, “We are going to continue to strengthen our team, resources and relationships so we can offer a broader product line and better service at a more competitive price. We want to ensure the needs of our customers are continually met.”
