For this round of Industry Gab, we caught up with the director of sales at Odorchem Manufacturing Corp. to get the lowdown on how he sees the hydroponics industry. It’s another one-of-a-kind conversation with an expert on the frontlines of the growing industry.

Q: WHAT ARE YOUR CURRENT CHALLENGES?

Odorchem: Keeping up with the growth in the hydroponics industry keeps us busy. We are also launching a new scent called Apple Crumble. The results of our market tests were terrific; we hope to get the same feedback on a national scale now that our distributors have just started selling it. It’s a lot of work, but we have a great team, which has been the key to our success.

Q: WHERE DO YOU SEE THE HYDROPONICS INDUSTRY GOING IN THE NEXT FIVE YEARS?

O: I see continued growth worldwide, but at the same time I see a little market adjustment looming. In the Denver area, for instance, there are now over 50 stores and a lot of competitive pricing. Stores are selling goods at near cost to undercut the shop across the street. That’s not a sustainable business model for long-term success. I believe it will take excellent manage-ment and strong capitalization for retailers to survive these pricing wars.

Q: WHAT’S THE ODDEST REQUEST YOU’VE EVER BEEN ASKED?

O: We had someone call in and ask in direct point blank manor, “does your product work on the smell of dead bodies?” We told him the truth, yes, we have very happy customers in the funeral industry. That left us all wondering, but, not enough to ask who was calling.
