Has Silver Bullet moved or expanded ?
SBWTC was initially headquartered in Aurora , Colorado , just outside of Denver . As we expanded into the cannabis and CEA markets , we needed more space to house a growing staff and to fit our increased manufacturing demand . In January 2018 , we moved to our current location in Golden , Colorado , right on the front range of the beautiful Rocky Mountains . We are always happy to talk with growers and give them a tour of our engineering department , in-house lab and analytical department , R & D project space , and our manufacturing area .
What is your current product line ?
Our product portfolio is expansive . We have solution options for disinfection , filtration , wastewater , and resource management ( i . e ., condensate recapture ) that can be customized to the scale and needs of the individual customer or facility . SBWTC ’ s AOP solution is still the cornerstone of our product portfolio , but over the years , the need to evolve has created a runway for product innovation . From custom engineered water treatment solutions to automation and control options to in-house laboratory services , SBWTC strives to provide a value-added experience that also accommodates our customer ' s specific water treatment needs .
Where do you distribute ?
We have customers throughout the United States and a developing international presence in CEA . As more domestic and global markets open to cannabis , we will expand to meet those demands .
How many people now work for Silver Bullet ?
SBWTC has expanded its workforce to more than 30 people .
What do you consider to be your strengths ?
The customer comes first ! As an organization , we pride ourselves on being a key contributor to our customers ’ success . Passion for delivering a premium customer experience drives the team every day .
What are some of your proudest moments ?
We have had many proud moments as an organization . Establishing customer relationships with some of the largest organizations in the industries we serve , such as Fifth Season , Vertical Harvest , Infinite Harvest , Tyson Foods , Switch Data Centers , and the U . S . Federal Government , have been milestone achievements for SBWTC . However , successfully managing the pandemic situation and thriving throughout 2020 has been our proudest moment . Our pre-pandemic groundwork allowed us to advance our strategic initiatives and afforded us the opportunity to pivot quickly and create work environments to ensure the health and safety of our employees , customers , and strategic partners .
What significant things have you learned so far about the industry ?
The cannabis and CEA industries are still going through many growing pains . Especially in the cannabis industry , best practices vary because of the decentralized nature of the current regulatory environment , facility operational efficiency , and the need for sustainable solutions . Because of these industry challenges , we have found that the solutions , consulting , and education we provide holds even more value for customers .
We have our fingers on the pulse of what each state or locality requires , and which solution will best fit the needs of customers who are entering a very sophisticated business that is producing commodities consumed by people .
What have you learned about starting and growing a company ?
Growth starts with finding an industry that has a pressing need , putting together the best team , establishing efficient business strategies , delivering solutions that not only work but provide added value , and becoming an invaluable resource for the customer throughout our relationship .

OVER THE YEARS , the need to evolve has created a runway for product innovation .”
