4. Color Spot Nurseries (Now Acquired by Altman Plants)

Color Spot Nurseries, Inc. produces and distributes trees and plants. The Company offers bedding plants, vegetables, herbs, shrubs, blooming plants, ground cover, and ornamentals. 

Altman Plants acquired Color Spot Nurseries in 2019 after Color Sport filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in Dec 2018.

“We’ve shared with the team the key goals for the company,” says Co-President Ken Altman. “We want to produce high-quality plants and satisfy our customers. And we want the two companies to feel like one team is interested in helping another. Decisions are measured against those goals. To this point, it seems like the team is on the same page. Now it is about executing this spring. There is a lot to do in a very short time.”

Since the acquisition was announced, it’s unclear what number of employees Color Sport had (employee count is now clubbed together by research firms).
