Meet TNB Naturals
I had an opportunity to ask co-owner, Josh Brazier some questions about the company.
What was your mission at the start of your business?
When we started out, we only had a single product, which is now known as The Enhancer; an all-natural CO2 generator designed to supplement CO2 levels in the grow room. Our mission became to put it in the hands of growers and grow stores everywhere. We knew it worked very well but hardly anyone else did and as a result, we were met with all kinds of skepticism and disbelief, especially early on.
How did you come up with the name of your company?
When we first started experimenting with The Enhancer, we knew we had something special. Early on we had growers testing our prototype and when we asked one specifically what he thought about the product, his response was “there’s nothing better!” Shortly after, we took that statement and TNB was formed. We added Naturals to the end, as we planned on focusing our efforts on all-natural products.
What is unique about your business?
One of the most unique aspects of our business has to be our flagship product, The Enhancer. Before its release, nobody had really seen anything like it and once we created The Refill Pack, which allowed growers to reuse their original Enhancer bottle, we gained even more attention. Furthermore, The Enhancer is heat and light-sensitive, so when the grow lights are on, it produces CO2 and when the lights go off, it actually slows the release of CO2 in order to give your plants a rest.
How would you describe your company’s success so far?
It’s been a long road with all kinds of setbacks and speed bumps along the way, but we’ve never stopped grinding and as a result, we’ve enjoyed a great deal of success in a relatively short period of time. In the beginning, we were selling locally, then throughout Canada, then into the United States, the UK, Australia, New Zealand, Europe, Africa and most recently, we broke into the South American market with distribution deals in Argentina and Chile. As it stands today, we’re available in six of the seven continents and still looking for a way to gain entry into Antarctica, so if anyone reading this has an in, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us.
Do you have any competition and if so, what sets you apart?
When we first started out, we were definitely the underdog, especially when it came to CO2. There were more well-established companies that had products already on the market, but as time has passed and with the introduction of our Refill Pack, we started to take more and more of the market share.
TNB Naturals have a number of new products in the research and development stage, with their focus remaining on innovation and sustainability. Available in over 30 countries and counting, customers have nothing but positive things to say about the products and they love the simplicity of the refill process.
Products are available at your local garden supply store, through their distribution partners and you can order on their website.
