In 1947, PBI consisted of a few determined entrepreneurs. PBI/Gordon today
boasts a full range of integrated company units organized to meet the product
development and marketing needs of the modern market place.
Products & Sales Groups
Our sales groups are organized into distinct units to provide focus for the marketing
and sales of our various product lines. These include Home & Farm Products,
Commercial Sales (Corporate and International
Sales) and Professional (Turf & Ornamental, Agricultural and Industrial Vegetation
Management Products); each servicing a separate segment of the overall green-market.
GLP & Formulations
Our Formulations Laboratory develops new formulations from existing
molecules which are then processed into problem-solving products for the industries
we serve. Our Good Laboratory Practices lab allows us to perform our own testing
in accordance with Environmental Protection Agency requirements.
Research & Development
Research is an integral element in providing useful innovative products to a
growing industry. Our field research facility has been in operation since 1985,
continuously testing potential new product formulations, application rates, tank-mix
combinations and application timing - everything necessary to be sure the end-user
of our products is not only sold but also satisfied.

Know-how is a major factor in being a player in a highly regulated industry.
Our regulatory group has not only worked closely with the EPA concerning our
own product registrations, but have been a major factor in the progress of several
industry task forces.

located in the Mid-West facilitating timely and cost-effective shipping nationwide.
These plants are run with the strictest quality control standards designed to
assure quality products in the marketplace.
