JOHN HENRY, A DIVISION OF MULTI PACKAGING SOLUTIONS serving the horticulture market, is among the first companies to participate in the GOEX Corporation’s breakthrough “closed- loop” plastic recycling program.

Finding A Better Way

John Henry supplies plant tags, merchandising, and marketing solutions to growers, greenhouses and garden centers, as well as to florists and wholesale floral operations.
