In today’s cannabis industry, consolidation is rampant, but it is not to be feared, but rather embraced. The benefits of consolidating equipment suppliers for cannabinoid manufacturing companies can’t be underestimated. Andy Joseph is the former owner of Apeks Supercritical until the company was acquired by Gibraltar Industries, and he now steers the helm as the general manager of Apeks Supercritical. Since the acquisition, Gibraltar has added additional companies to its stable of cannabis offerings, ranging from greenhouse manufacturers, to solar manufacturers, and ethanol extraction manufacturers. One of the acquisitions is Delta Separations, and Ben Stephens is the Director of R&D there. Andy and Ben will discuss how this consolidation can benefit customers in the long run.
