Palram Acquires SPS

As part of a worldwide effort to streamline, strengthen and broaden Palram’s sales and marketing efforts, Palram has acquired SPS. With the exception of Carl Schultz, current SPS employees will begin operating within the newly created Horticultural Products Division of Palram Americas. The move will allow the former “SPS” to focus on its primary strengths, sales and marketing, while relying on Palram for increased infrastructure and operational resources. Stan Schultz is now Horticultural Products Division Manager. Ron James will assume the title of National Sales Manager for the Hort Products Division.
