Wilson Orchard & Vineyard Supply, LLC is pleased to announce the acquisition of Valley Vineyard Supply, based in Lodi, Calif. The transaction closed on Feb. 2, 2018.
Founded 30 years ago by Melvin (Mel) Roush, Valley Vineyard manufactures vineyard cross arms and T-posts, and distributes a broad array of other vineyard and orchard supplies to growers of permanent crops. Mr. Roush passed away earlier this year.
Operating out Washington, Oregon and California, Wilson is a one-stop solutions provider for orchards and vineyards offering a full suite of irrigation, planting, development, and harvesting equipment and supplies, as well as irrigation system designs which will soon be offered in Lodi.
For 30 years, Wilson has earned a strong reputation in some of the world’s most prolific and progressive growing regions for tree fruit, vineyards, berries, hops and nuts.
Valley Vineyard will continue to operate out of its existing location in Lodi but will do business under the Wilson name going forward.
“Valley Vineyard has been a leading supplier of primarily vineyard supplies in the San Joaquin valley, and we are excited to team up with its customers and employees to continue to offer high quality products at a fair price with integrity, continuing the legacy of Mel Roush,” said Joe Perry, Wilson’s CEO.
“We also plan to expand Valley Vineyard’s product offering to include the full breadth of OVS and irrigation equipment, supplies and services that Wilson offers at its other locations,” Mr. Perry added.
“This acquisition allows us to manufacture cross arms and T-posts, which will broaden our product offering for trellising solutions,” commented Steve Kuhn of Wilson. “This will help us to better serve the needs of orchard and vineyard growers everywhere.”
