We are the complete supplier for all your horticultural and landscape needs, committed to providing superior customer service and offering the best products available.
Thank you for your friendship and support through the years. We continue to value your loyalty and commitment to "the Green industry".
We can relate to the challenges and joys of running a family business as our family has been in business since the early 1900s.
Our history in the industry began with my grandfather, Lindor Robert Maletzke Sr., who was a progressive wholesale grower. He founded Sunny Point Floral, which is still running today under different owners.
My father, Lindor R. Maletzke Jr., continued in the industry working for his father, and, in the late 1940s, he founded Lin's Flowerland. He was a great florist, grower and nurseryman. We had two retail locations, a nursery and sod fields. I grew up working with my father learning both about the business and the industry.
In 1972, we founded Carlin Sales as a wholesale distributor to serve the grower. With your support for over forty years, we have grown, expanded and reinvested through great staff, convenient locations, increased use of new technology and strong support of education within the industry.
In October 2004, we acquired ProGreen Plus to broaden our scope of service and provide product lines to serve the landscape industry. Our ProGreen Plus product lines are now stocked at all of our locations.
Most importantly, with your support we are determined to continue our commitment as a family business. Our son Michael Maletzke (fourth generation) joined the company several years ago, and he has brought new energy and drive for Carlin/ProGreen's continued success for years to come.
We are here to serve you. We thank you for your continued business and look forward to working with you in the future.
Mark, Carol & Family
