According to Everris CEO Fred Bosch, the company’s new tagline, "Driven by innovation, inspired by nature," underlines its ultimate goal to bring professional products and innovative, sustainable solutions to ornamental horticulture growers, turf managers, landscapers and farmers.

"For years, we’ve helped growers and turf managers to design smarter nutritional  programs and plant protection programs that often combine our unique technologies to feed plants exactly what they need, when they need it," Bosch says. "Everris combines the technical expertise and resources of both Scotts and ICL, making us well-poised to take our innovative spirit to the next level."
