Kush Bottles Inc. (Santa Ana, CA), a supplier of packaging, accessories and branding solutions for the legal cannabis industry, has opened its doors to a new regional sales and distribution center in the Seattle area of Washington. This new facility in Woodinville, WA, increases Kush Bottles’ footprint in the Pacific Northwest by more than 500%.
The building contains over 13,000 square feet of warehouse and office space, which enables the company to house a large inventory for immediate deliveries or pick-ups throughout Washington and Oregon—two of Kush’s four highest sales-volume states (along with California and Colorado) given these states’ somewhat liberal cannabis legalization status.
The new facility’s vast office space will accommodate the hiring of up to 30 additional team members over the next 12-18 months. The dock high loading capabilities will also accommodate increased shipping and receiving. It is being equipped with advanced, automated inventory control and shipping technology to provide fast delivery throughout the Pacific Northwest and to accommodate rapid growth and expansion. Kush Bottles is also installing a Will Call Desk for customers to pick-up their orders.
A representative for the cannabis packager told PlasticsToday that with this new facility, Kush will have the largest variety of cannabis specific products available in stock, in the state of Washington. Also, the company intends to continue to service its customers with the exceptional service they are known for and given their new size, they can handle much more capacity. In turn, they are also hiring sales professionals to build out our books of business further. Kush recognizes that there is still a very large number of license winners that are yet to get to market still and intend to be their packaging partner when they do.
“We’re excited to upgrade our facility to keep up with the demand we’re seeing in the Pacific Northwest,” said Nicholas Kovacevich, Co-Founder and CEO of Kush Bottles. “Washington and Oregon are major markets for the legal cannabis industry and this new facility will be one of the largest in the region dedicating specifically to supplying cannabis businesses with customizable branded packaging solutions and other compliant products.”
“Kush Bottles continues to build a strong national sales and distribution foundation to support exponentially higher sales in 2017 and for many years beyond. We’re proud of our superior product lines, unrivaled customer service, robust distribution network, large product selection, and convenient e-commerce and custom packaging platforms,” added Kovacevich.
