Consultants, Agencies, Brokers & Freelancers
Welcome to Timco Worldwide...
Established in 1985, Timco Worldwide Inc. began as a produce brokerage specializing in watermelons. Building a strong customer base of well-respected grocers, retailers, wholesalers, and foodservice customers, Timco's reputation for consistency spread throughout the industry. By the late eighties, Timco underwent a variety of changes to stay ahead of customer demands. As a result, Timco evolved into a shipping company with close partnerships with their growers
In the early nineties, the demand for year-round produce availability was on the rise. To satisfy our clients’ needs for year-round supplies, Timco expanded its growing regions beyond the US's West Coast to include several warmer climates: Mexico, Panama, Honduras, Guatemala, Dominican Republic, and Costa Rica. The expansion into these growing areas, and the Eastern US, has allowed Timco to transition into a 12-month supplier of various melons, including watermelons, mini watermelons, honeydews, cantaloupes, seasonal melons, and a selection of seasonal organics.
In late 2011, CH Robinson Worldwide purchased Timco Worldwide. Given their already longstanding relationship and the other synergies, this is a natural fit. Timco is able to remain focused and innovative, and with CH Robinson’s resources, they’re able to grow the service and business at a greater rate.
Today Timco remains true to its origins through its active and progressive role in the advancement of watermelon as a quality, year-round treat. Our production expands 13 states and 5 countries. Timco is now one of the foremost watermelon suppliers in the North America.
Constantly looking for new and efficient ways to bring the consumer the highest quality produce, Timco is leading the way in watermelon innovation. These innovations include proprietary seed varieties, patented automated mobile sorting machines and branding. Its “Melon Up!” Minis were one of the first brands of the single serving watermelon to hit the market.
The last, and perhaps most important, ingredient to Timco’s “success formula” is the Timco Team. In fact, we like to call ourselves “Teamco.” Great people make a great company. In fact, we are looking for more great people for our team now! If Timco sounds like a place where you would like to work and be a part of our team, we would like to hear from you.
And by the way, we live and work in a beautiful part of Northern California. Davis is a beautiful little college town full of tree-lined neighborhoods, parks, wonderful schools and a great down town. What’s more, it’s just a few minutes from Sacramento and many other communities that will fit any preference. With Lake Tahoe and San Francisco both just a couple hours away, you’ll never be at a loss for somewhere to go or something to do.
