Rob Lando

CEO, AgriNomix

Rob’s Oberlin, Ohio-based company AgriNomix is North America’s largest supplier of automation to nursery and greenhouse growers.  He and three grower partners formed AgriNomix (formerly Flier USA) in 1994 to provide local sales and service for high-tech Dutch-made automation. While continuing to grow that segment, the company has also become one of North America’s largest domestic manufacturers of Horticultural Automation. Lando became sole owner of the business in 2002. In addition to his day job, Lando is an active board member for Neighborhood Alliance, a North East Ohio non-profit, which provides essential services to Lorain County residents in all stages of life. Lando enthusiastically serves on the board of directors of the industry’s national association AmericanHort. He is a Vancouver native, and a US/Canadian dual citizen who moved to the U.S. when he was 19.  Prior to AgriNomix, he served as Sr. Vice President responsible for Sales and Service at Bouldin & Lawson of McMinnville, TN, and he started his journey in the horticulture industry with Langley Peat Moss of Fort Langley, BC in 1980. Lando and his wife Julia have been married nearly 27 years and enjoy close ties to their two grown daughters.
