- A close community.
For more than 40 years, U-GRO has demonstrated a commitment to service and respect to our families and employees. We are not a mega-corporation. We’re a local-regional company that’s big enough to compete with the multinationals and small enough to thrive right here where our U-GRO families live in Central Pennsylvania.
