The Oehmsem family has been involved with Greenhouses since 1927; from engineering and design to construction and manufacturing.

In 1960 Erich Oehmsen founded Oehmsen Plastic Greenhouse Mfg., Inc. on Long Island, NY. Over the years the company grew and achieved a reputation for producing the finest quality structure on the market. In the mid '70's Karl (Henry) Oehmsen bought the business from Erich and continued the tradition. In the mid '80's Carola Oehmsen Vivian joined the company. In 1989 the company relocated to George, IA to better serve its customers. We are still family owned, but we have added a local investor to our family.
