 Montana-Made Greenhouse

A new greenhouse company in Missoula, Mont., is not only designing greenhouses with new patented technology but is also using a unique manufacturing model. To fulfill its production needs, the Convertible Greenhouse Co. recently partnered with Opportunity Resources Inc., a Montana-based nonprofit organization that employs people with disabilities.

“We’ve designed the greenhouses to be the heart of the garden,” said Jeff Howard, CGC president. “And for Opportunity Resources the greenhouse manufacturing unit is becoming an integral part of its organization, providing valuable employment opportunities for its diverse workforce.”

Howard was looking for a manufacturing partner for his greenhouses when he learned of ORI losing contract work after a local paper mill closed. Now, ORI’s wood shop employees are busy cutting the shelf and bench components utilized in the greenhouses. ORI employees also assemble and ship the greenhouse kits.

“I believed in Howard’s greenhouse products and the manufacturing model from the onset,” said Jack Chambers, CEO of ORI. “It’s a very nice fit for the work we provide our employees. The product itself is high quality and very functional. I think gardeners will definitely like it.”



Howard, a lifelong gardener who as a boy started growing tomatoes with his grandfather, said that there aren’t any other greenhouses quite like CGC’s. He’s designed the greenhouses for hobby and professional gardeners at prices affordable for both.
