ORGANIC . SCALABLE
Our Kaizen method uses a lean manufacturing approach to create scalable, efficient and proven designs. The designs we offer are a product of refinement over millions of dollars of project developments and improvements. Kaizen's solutions are based on years of experience within the operational commercial cannabis cultivation sector, and have been used by some of the industry's most successful organic indoor grows.
Kaizen’s lean manufacturing approach to indoor agriculture is a symbiotic relationship between facility design, and the standard operating procedures carefully adhered to within. Our process integrates into our facilities in a way that effectively creates zero downtime between harvests, resulting in both a consistent and constant stream of top-tier crops.
Our company collaborates with leaders in the recreational marijuana industry to offer a unique production management training program. This program provides clients and their employees immediate, hands-on training in a fully operational farm prior to the construction of their own facility. This novel training program further reinforces our commitment to a production cycle with zero downtime.
