Kush Bottles was just recognized on the Inc.com 5000 list of Fastest Growing Companies in America. Kush Bottles is listed alongside companies like Microsoft, GoPro, and Vizio. California’s $1 billion+ industry last year is evident in companies that produce cannabis cannisters.
Kush Bottles ranked #774 out of 5000, placing it in the top 20%. The average company in Inc.‘s list has grown six-fold since 2012. Kush Bottles has sold 50 million pop-tops and child-resistant cannisters in all 23 states that permit medical marijuana. Ealier this year, the company acquired Dank Bottles.
Nick Kovacevich is co-founder and CEO of Kush Bottles. Kovacevich told Plastics Today “We attribute our rapid growth to a combination of factors…. We are in the right business at the right time, which allowed us to create a marketable brand and have first mover status. Moreover, our team has performed remarkably in all areas, including sales, customer service and marketing communications. We have also been able to create valuable strategic relationships with key partners throughout the industry.”
Kush Bottles isn’t the only bottle company that tried to dominate the cannabis industry. “Our strategy has always been to provide premium quality products—without compromise. We were among the first in the industry to provide certified child resistant containers that are up to FDA and Consumer Product Safety Commission standards. We also have a boots on the ground approach, distribution centers throughout the United States and customer service representatives that regularly visit our customers. We are viewed as a trusted partner, a reliable source of up-to-date information on regulations affecting the industry, and an innovative provider of solutions.”
The coverage should help Kush Bottles grow even more. “Being recognized by Inc. is very powerful,” Kovacevich said. “I think this will open many new doors for us. I’ve been warned our phones might start to ring off the hook from venture capitalists and bankers who want to lend money or invest.”
