Our People

Lorri Hiebert, Purchasing Manager at Westbrook Systems, is an extremely hard working, meticulous and dedicated employee. She has been with Westbrook for 15 years and has been a key player in the growth and success of Westbrook Systems. During her tenure at Westbrook, she has sourced numerous vendors and innovative products by applying her natural sense of curiosity. Lorri has built strong relationships within Westbrook, but also within the marketplace, as she demonstrates many of our Group values as she interacts with others.

Over the past two years with global supply chain issues surging, Lorri has worked diligently to ensure the material that goes into our greenhouse structures make it to the building sites. Having to constantly adjust for long lead times, supply chain shortages, and the changing dynamics of the industry we realize this is no easy task, and we cannot thank Lorri enough for being such a passionate employee and caring intensely about our customers. 

Thank you, Lorri, for everything you have done and continue to do!

“The best part of Westbrook and the Greenhouse Industry in general is the people.  Working at Westbrook Systems has given me the opportunity to team up with some of the smartest, most innovative, caring people I have ever met. We are a great team, and I am proud to have been a part of the significant growth we have experienced in recent years.  Working in the greenhouse industry for more that 30 years now, I have built many valued relationships with the wonderful people in this industry; generations of family greenhouse operations, supportive vendors, and reliable installers.  We have been through some of the toughest times recently but through it all the Westbrook team, our customers, and vendors alike have continued to treat each other with patient and respectful attitudes making it a pleasure to be part of this industry.”
