If you’re part of the ever-evolving cannabis industry, you know that most cannabis-related companies have only been around for a handful of years. As the industry continues to grow, more and more businesses are popping up with newly developed products to serve growers and dispensaries alike. But with so many new companies with unproven track records, how can you be sure that you’re partnering with a dependable ancillary cannabis business?
What to Look for When Hiring New Ancillary Cannabis Businesses
When you’re looking for ancillary services to support your growing cannabis empire, carefully consider the following factors to ensure you’re making the right partner selection.
1. Consider Years in the Industry
First and foremost, consider the company’s experience in the cannabis market. If they’re a startup that has only been around for a year or two, they may be doing great work; however, they more than likely are still working out some kinks in their services, operations, or products. Consider looking for a provider with a long-standing history in the space to ensure you’re getting expert service with a proven track record.
2. Consider the Company’s Background
If the service provider doesn’t have years of experience specifically in cannabis, consider the company’s track record in other service areas. For some services– like cultivation equipment, technology, security, and staffing– expertise may be transferable from one field to another.
3. Do the Math
If you work with this ancillary business, will it ultimately save you time, money, or resources? Do the math, so you have realistic expectations and understand the potential return on investment. Maybe returns won’t be seen immediately, but you should ultimately enjoy some ROI by working with a service provider, whether it be on your time, staffing costs, crop yield, or quality. If you do the math and something’s not adding up, run.
4. Hear From Existing Clients of the Company
Because cannabis companies tend to be tight-lipped about services giving them an upper hand, it may be challenging to speak to existing cannabis clients; but ask a sales representative if possible. If not, ask to review a case study proving the service’s effectiveness or see client testimonials.
Why Lift and Grow is the Answer for Light Lifting Solutions
When it comes to moving grow lights, Lift and Grow is the one and only answer for cultivators.
We’ve been developing motorized lifts for more than 30 years, so you can rest assured that our products are safe, dependable, and can withstand the test of time. While our lifts were originally designed and manufactured for major retailers like Walmart, REI, and Dick’s Sporting Goods, we began applying our advanced safety features and technology to the cannabis space in 2019.
Since that time, we’ve installed adjustable grow light lifts in commercial facilities across the United States and Canada, including Urban Remo, Ascension Farms, Growth Industries, Garden Remedies, and White Farms. In these facilities, we’ve proven our value by helping cultivators increase yields and potency of plants while decreasing harvest cycle times.
