Royal Brinkman has announced the acquisition of Kam’s Growers Supply.

The addition is expected to help bolster the company’s portfolio of products and services in the North American horticultural sector.

The takeover will begin January 6, 2022 and is said to be fueled by the increasing scale of the horticulture market in North America.


“Like Royal Brinkman, Kam’s is a family business with employees who care about customers and their crops,” says Ton van Mil, CEO of Royal Brinkman. “Since its establishment in 2005, the company has experienced continuous growth and built up a strong reputation. Kam’s distinguishes itself with excellent customer service, products and solutions that improve grower profitability and sees this rewarded by the strong customer confidence.”

Royal Brinkman’s strategy is to have a strong local presence in the most important horticultural countries in the world. Acquiring Kam’s Growers Supply is expected to drive its market position with a broader product and service package.

Kam’s Growers Supply, with its 20 employees, will continue business under the Kam’s name from the same two locations in Ontario as well as British Columbia. President of Kam’s Growers Supply, Kameron Fordyce, as well as marketing and operations manager Julie Fordyce will continue to manage the business with the same team of sales, agronomy, office, warehouse and logistics staff.

“With the massive scale and hi-tech sophistication of North American growers, partnering with Royal Brinkman is the perfect match for us to meet the evolving demands for international horticultural technology,” says Kameron Fordyce. “Collaboration with Royal Brinkman will allow us to expand our portfolio with crop rotation products, mechanical equipment and technical projects.”
