In 2012, we saw the unique opportunity to develop a “better” greenhouse system for growing. We started out building the greenhouse systems one by one in our 2-car garage and selling them locally on Craigslist. These homemade greenhouses were so successful that demand quickly grew faster than we could reasonably meet it. As a result, we expanded manufacturing operations in Redding, CA in 2014 and formed Emerald Kingdom Greenhouse Llc., with the primary focus of developing innovative greenhouses systems that harness new technologies, and bring them to market at competitive costing.
Within the first year, EKG quickly recognized that in developing an affordable “blackout” greenhouse, there was a previously untapped market for the DIY grower. The result was to tap into the desire for an accelerated harvesting time, by utilizing light deprivation technology and offering it as a package option with each greenhouse EKG manufacturers.
