Henry Mast, Jr. retires in 2005 after establishing a working group of partners made up of family and non-family members. Those members include: Tim Stiles, Chris Mast, Paul Bouma, Shawn Koepnick, Leroy De Vries, and Ron Mercer. Whitewater Greenhouses in Wisconsin is purchased, located strategically close to the Chicago market. Greenhouse production triples to accommodate growth at Meijer and Home Depot stores in 14 states. At the same time, land is purchased for the creation of Masterpiece Flower Company, the sales, marketing and distribution component of Henry Mast Greenhouses. Peak Transportation , our own truck brokerage company, follows shortly after to help us get products from the greenhouses to the stores in record time.
