TRANSFORM PROCUREMENT FROM AN AFTERTHOUGHT
TO A COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE

Mission

To advance the commercial cannabis industry by simplifying procurement for our clients, streamlining the path to market for manufacturers, and expanding access to quality commercial products.

QUALITY

We are dedicated to sourcing quality products from established brands.  We firmly believe that quality inputs positively impact performance, minimize operational risk, and ultimately translate into brand equity for our customers.

INTEGRITY

We are focused on building long-term relationships by collaborating closely with our customers to meet their specific needs.  We strive to simplify the procurement process by being an effective and reliable partner in alignment with our stakeholders.

PERFORMANCE

We achieve superior results and are not afraid to challenge the status quo. As former operators who have designed, built, and managed state-of-the-art facilities, we are confident that by providing access to premier horticultural products we will advance the industry.

HISTORY

RMJ Supply™ (“RMJ”) was founded in 2017 by experienced cultivators to reliably procure horticultural equipment and production inputs for commercial-scale cannabis cultivations.

While designing state of the art medical facilities, executives struggled to access premier horticultural equipment and products.  Sourcing, evaluating, and managing vendor relationships was consuming growers’ time and distracting focus from operational performance. RMJ became a strategic sourcing partner by building a network of vendor relationships to centralize procurement for cultivations. 

Today RMJ is the single source for at scale equipment systems, cultivation, and facility supplies. Our centrally located distribution center, deep operational expertise, strategic sourcing capabilities, and inventory replenishment solution make us the trusted distribution partner for MSOs and licensed commercial operators across North America.

Chief Executive Officer for RMJ Supply

Mike Kupferman

Founder & CEO, RMJ Supply

Mike has played an active role in developing state-of-the-art cultivations across North America, South America, and Europe. Mike’s expertise lies in identifying and sourcing growing equipment and systems that drive performance in commercial cannabis production.  

Mike began his career in Portland in 2004 when he launched some of Oregon’s first commercial medical cannabis cultivation facilities.  He moved on to California to help owners in Humboldt County improve operations and optimize output while minimizing environmental impact.   

In 2016, Mike led the design, buildout, and operation of Holistic Industries, Inc.’s initial 300,000+ square feet of cultivation in DC, MA, MD, and PA.  During this period, Mike oversaw development of an additional 50,000 square feet of cultivation for a specialized private equity fund. Today, these assets serve as the cornerstone for several leading brands. 

In 2017, Mike founded RMJ Supply to support equipment procurement for the projects he was involved in, naturally expanding the services to additional licensees. Ultimately, RMJ Supply became the first distributor solely focused on large-scale commercial cannabis production.  

Mike studied Renewable Energy Engineering and Automation at the Oregon Institute of Technology.
