Claymore Sieck

 

Sieck Floral Distributing, Inc is the largest wholesale distributor of fresh cut flowers, plants, floral supplies and bouquets in upstate New York. We have been supplying the needs of florist's and mass merchants for more than 80 years.

Currently, our 20,000 sq. ft. warehouse, located in Depew, NY, contains our substantial inventory of floral supplies and over 4,000 sq. ft. of racked refrigerated space, capable of handling multiple trailer loads of material. Our fleet of 12 delivery vehicles enable us to deliver daily to our customers throughout upstate New York and northwest Pennsylvania.

 

Our story

Our roots go back to 1929 and the founding of White Brothers Rose Corp. White Brothers soon became a significant producer of roses and by the late 1940's opened a local wholesale distribution facility in Buffalo to help sell their growing rose production. After many years of success, White Brothers was acquired by the Sieck company in 1983 and rebranded with the Sieck name in 1991.

In the 1990's, the company shifted away from local floral production and into wholesale distribution and the company soon became the largest wholesale distributor in Western New York.

In 2010, the Sieck company returned to our roots and once again became involved in floral production with the acquisition of our Mexican growing facility. Our farm, Flores Ixtapan, currently produces over 50 Hectares of floral species including (but not limited to) Roses, Gerbera, Alstromeria, Snapdragon, Delphinium and Chrysanthemums. With up to 200 hectares of additional floral production area still available, we possess tremendous growth potential for the foreseeable future.

In 2012, Sieck began to transition our delivery vehicles to run on the alternate fuel, Compressed Natural Gas (CNG). CNG is environmentally friendly, cost effective and is domestically produced. As of June 2016, 50% of our fleet now runs on CNG.

 

In Summary

Utilizing our own production, the production from our select outsource partners, our size, and fleet of alternatively fueled vehicles, Sieck can offer a complete line of products, delivered to your door, at very competitive prices.
