"I recognize that there is a consolidation happening in the hydroponic industry. As a first wave founder, one must know when to step aside and pass the baton to someone who has the passion, vision and insurmountable resources to take the company to the next level" said Treg Bradley, President, Chairman of the Board and Founder of Botanicare. "After getting to know Chris Hagedorn and his professional team, I feel they are the best fit for us moving forward."
This acquisition will help Botanicare continue its exponential growth and secure its place as an industry leader in the decades to come.
As plant cultivation experts, Botanicare is dedicated to providing superior products, expert advice and support to help growers produce better crops. What started as an experimental plant nutrient, Pure Blend (now Pure Blend Tea), brewed in the back room of an Arizona retail gardening store has evolved into Botanicare, a market leader in hydroponic products.
