In 1982, former CropKing President, Dan Brentlinger founded CropKing to help pioneers in the rapidly expanding hydroponic grower`s industry facing the same problems and issues he faced as a greenhouse farmer. After making plenty of mistakes, he sought advice from industry professionals and toured hydroponic farms throughout the U.S. and Europe, and finally put together a system that worked, and worked well - so that others wouldn`t have to `reinvent the wheel`. We now service nearly 700 commercial hydroponic growers throughout the country. CropKing imports products from around the world.
