WE ARE ETEROS

Accountability • Grit • Ingenuity • Initiative • Respect

OUR PHILOSOPHY

We are driven by innovation, creativity,  and making the impossible a reality.  We love to surprise our customers with unexpected thoughtfulness in all our products.  Our marketers never have to lie or exaggerate; we require our products to be truly great.
We reject mediocrity.

Our philosophy extends beyond product design.  From production to marketing to accounting, we strive to think outside the box regarding all aspects of our company.  Everyone at Eteros is expected to challenge existing procedures, suggest a better way, and drive it home.  Our open door policy and our transparent, honest management style makes being heard easy, not intimidating.  We don’t wear suits.  We dislike formalities.  We are not afraid to roll up our sleeves.

Our philosophy applies both internally and externally, as we exude the same values towards our customers and vendors.  We actively seek feedback and open dialogue to create sincere relationships and products that solve real problems.

CORE VALUES

ACCOUNTABILITY

If we say we are going to do something, we do it! This applies not only as an internal company value, but also outward facing, interacting with our customers and vendors. We believe consistent accountability builds trust and strong relationships, internally as a team, and externally as a brand.

GRIT

Giving up is not in our nature. We know that tough problems present obstacles and that every obstacle is an opportunity to learn something new. We understand that having the grit to persevere though an obstacle gives us greater satisfaction when we succeed!

INGENUITY

We delight in providing our customers with thoughtful, often surprising product features and design. Not only reserved for product design, we come up with creative solutions for every facet of our company – from paperwork to production line, marketing to product features – everything can (and should!) be improved upon.

INITIATIVE

At Eteros, you will never hear anyone say “that’s not my job”. From small things, like tidying up the kitchen or answering a ringing phone, to bigger things, like counting inventory when it’s crunch time, we help each other out without being asked. When time allows, we actively seek out small or big ways to impact the efficiency of our daily tasks.

RESPECT

We respect each other by being genuine and helpful. Our open door policy and our transparent and honest management style makes being heard easy, not intimidating. We dislike formalities. We all work together. We respect each other’s contributions. We check our egos at the door.

OUR STORY

Eteros’ founder, Aaron McKellar, first became involved in the cannabis harvesting industry in 2007 when a friend asked him to design a leaf trimming machine to replace one that was no longer commercially available.  At the time, Aaron owned a marina, boat repair, and boat manufacturing business.  The marine business was very seasonal, so Aaron thought that this would be a good winter project.  In 2009, after selling a few machines locally, the two decided to make a business of it.  Over the next 7 years, the company grew to include two machine models and several accessories – propelling consistently impressive year-over-year growth. In late 2016, Aaron sold his interests in the company, and decided to start Eteros – a new company, with a strong engineering foundation, focused on innovation and producing superior, quality products. Aaron began with a talented group of hand-picked engineers and mechanical designers, who, along with Aaron, were very eager to revolutionize the trimming machine market.  It didn’t take long for Eteros’ slogan to become “Divergent Thinking”, as we strive to put a unique, out-of-the-box spin on everything we do.
