In 1971, Richard Koenig of Redington Beach, Florida, relocated his family for employment purposes, to Westfield, New York. Having spent his youth in Manhattan, Richard greatly enjoyed the bucolic lifestyle in Westfield, as well as the many recreational activities and reasonable cost of living. Richard soon decided that Westfield was where his own business, Plantrol Systems would be located.

They all express an appreciation of the low-stress life in Westfield, the beautiful housing at very reasonable cost, the excellent public school, low or no commute time (some ride bikes to work), top-notch medical care and easy access to any “big city” offering that might tempt you away for the day. The stability and excellence of the workforce in Westfield has truly been the basis for Plantrol’s success and the fact that they will soon celebrate thirty years in business in Westfield, New York.
