Effective at the beginning of the fiscal year, September 1, 2018, the Company has officially changed its name from Kush Bottles, Inc., to KushCo Holdings, Inc.

The Company’s core packaging, supply, branding, vape, and gas sales will continue to operate under the Kush Bottles name on the existing distribution platform. The name change was approved by the Company’s stockholders at the Company’s 2018 annual meeting of stockholders held on May 8, 2018.
The new KushCo headquarters, located at 11958 Monarch Street, Garden Grove, CA consists of two buildings that operate as the Company’s core logistics hub as well as the Company headquarters. The site, totaling nearly 75,000 square feet, will serve as the primary shipping and warehousing facilities servicing the Company’s nationwide network of distribution centers. In addition, the new location houses KushCo’s printing and labeling operations which represent an investment of over $1.5 million, in equipment and infrastructure to service the evolving needs of the Company’s customer base.
Rodrigo de Oliveira, Vice President of Operations, commented, “We realize that our customers require world-class service to meet the needs of the rapidly evolving legal cannabis market in the U.S. Our new campus-like facilities will allow us to meet these needs utilizing a combination of operations best practices founded in GEMBA, Kaizen and 5-S. We will also rely on an increased level of automation to ensure service and quality requirements are met with a focus on continuous improvement in all facets of our business.”
Nick Kovacevich, KushCo’s CEO, stated, “The evolution to KushCo Holdings is symbolic, as we migrate from our beginnings as solely a packaging provider to now a full-service provider of a wide array of ancillary needs – from ultra-pure hydrocarbon gases to vaping products, creative marketing services, as well as our core packaging roots. I am proud of our Company’s progress to date and we look forward to servicing all the needs of our valued customers for years to come.” Mr. Kovacevich continued, “The relocation to our new headquarters in Garden Grove is another significant milestone in our Company’s development. We are excited to have a location which reflects our maturation as a company in addition to providing a great environment for our team to continue to lead the transformation of the legal cannabis industry in the United States and abroad.”
