KushCo Holdings Adds to International Expansion with Opening of China Office

Presence in China Reinforces Manufacturing Relationships and Quality Control

GARDEN GROVE, Calif., Sept. 12, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- KushCo Holdings Inc. (KSHB) (“KushCo” or the “Company”), the parent company of innovative cannabis industry leaders such as Kush Bottles, Kush Energy, The Hybrid Creative, and Koleto Packaging Solutions, which provide a range of services and products for the regulated cannabis, CBD and other related industries, announced today the second international expansion of KushCo Holdings with an office in the Jiangbei District of Ningbo, China, establishing a physical presence that will further enable the Company to develop stronger manufacturing relationships, maintain consistent high quality standards for customer needs globally and establish the Company as a leading innovator of proprietary child resistant packaging options for the legalized cannabis industry.

The KushCo Holdings office in China includes two key team members who recently relocated to the Company’s China office from the United States, including Diana Malone, Director Global Sourcing and Quality Control, with experience working internationally and improving manufacturer relationships. Additionally, KushCo Holdings has four local office members who manage quality control inspections, as well as new product development processes. This ensures that as proprietary products are innovated and molded, they can seamlessly be produced and absorbed into the Kush Bottles distribution platform.

“We continue to invest in stateside production but also recognize that strong relationships and serious investments in China are extremely important for any robust supply chain to function efficiently. Having recently announced our Canadian market entry, this new China office marks our second international expansion effort, which continues to propel us toward our ultimate goal of becoming the premier ancillary provider for the global cannabis industry. And, in order to service our customers effectively, we need to be sourcing products worldwide,” said Nick Kovacevich, CEO of KushCo Holdings. “This office in China will help maintain consistent quality standards across the board and allow us to make the necessary improvements that will enhance our product offerings, keep a tight line of sight for inventory control, and ultimately, benefit our customers with better products, pricing, and efficiency.”
