In 1979, Gill van der Drift started as a self-employed greenhouse glazier, with just some glazing hooks, planks and a tractor. After only a couple of years he was able to employ three people, which grew into fifteen employees within another couple of years. His company operated throughout Europe, particularly in Scandinavia and England. In 1992, he decided to cross the ocean to America. He also became successful in America, and proceeded to incorporate the company Mountain High Greenhouse Construction LLC in Colorado.
In 2012, his son Mitchell joined the company. His arrival meant a new impulse in the company. Thanks to Gill’s many years of experience, Mitchell’s drive and the location of the new office premises, the future of Mountain High is looking very bright.
