ABOUT US

Rhythm CSS is owned and operated by accomplished engineers with over 35 years combined experience in industrial automation and controls, product development and project management. Our company was founded by problem solvers who recognized an industry in need of more sustainable practices in order to maintain the highest level of quality, consistency, and yield with every harvest.

Our Story.

In 2014, Cory met a commercial grower in Denver, CO that introduced him to his operations. The grower explained the lack of tailored solutions available to cannabis entrepreneurs at the time. Cory's brother, Cale, and his co-worker Raul were Application Engineers who then decided to bring their software talents to the cannabis world, working directly with indoor cultivators inside their facilities to test and create RHYTHM.
