Pantano Outdoor Supply Announces New Location Headed by General Manager Paul Lott
Pantano Outdoor Supply, a leading outdoor supplier of landscape, hardscape, and power equipment products for contractors, is announcing plans to expand their reach with a soon-to-come location in Middletown, DE.
The 6-acre location’s prospective opening date will be in June of 2024, and this location, 928 Middletown Warwick Rd, will serve all of Delaware, Southern and Eastern Maryland, Southern New Jersey, and Southern Pennsylvania. Currently, the company is based in Manalapan, NJ, and services the tri-state area, so this new location will make Pantano Outdoor Supply’s services available in five states.
In conjunction with this location announcement, Pantano welcomes Paul Lott to the team as General Manager and head of the Middletown campus. Lott brings an extensive background in the hardscape industry. Throughout his over twenty-year career, he’s served in various professional and management positions in the field, including but not limited to the business development and outside sales representative for Woodbury Cement Products, general manager & outside sales for L&L Masonry Supply, area sales manager of Boral and also an architectural representative for Boral. In addition to his career success, Lott has a strong background in technically-focused design and details. As a family man, married to his wife Ellen, with two children, Sarah and Colin, they spend time along the Delaware beaches. Lott looks forward to the opportunity stating, “I am excited to join the Pantano Outdoor Supply family and expand the brand into Middletown, Delaware, a market I am passionate about and know well. As we build our facility, I am eager to build connections immediately with the local community to showcase The Pantano Experience and how we can serve landscape contractors’ needs in this region.”
Pantano Outdoor Supply was founded over twenty years ago by husband and wife team Rick and Vicki Pantano. Throughout its years in business, Pantano has gained recognition by understanding the challenges the landscaping industry faces, devoting its services to contractors and their clients, and genuinely being a partner in every project.
The current NJ location is settled on 50-acre grounds that include a 15-acre contractor-only nursery, a 2,500 sq. ft. indoor hardscape design center, a 9,000 sq. ft. store for landscape and construction tools, and they are proudly the Nation’s #1 exclusive Techo-Bloc dealer with 6,000 sq. ft. of indoor and outdoor real-world design displays.
“We are excited about the addition of Paul Lott to the Pantano team. He brings the same professionalism and knowledge we pride ourselves on as a company. Deciding to move into a hardscape/landscape market with tremendous growth potential offers us the opportunity to expand our footprint as a leading full-line supplier in the mid-Atlantic region. We are truly excited about the opportunity to partner with a very talented group of contractors in this marketplace,” said Dan Harrison, Executive Director of Pantano Outdoor Supply.
