MariCann Inc. of Norfolk County positioning itself to be a global leader in the production of marijuana for medicinal, commercial and recreational purposes, reports the Simcoe Reformer.
MariCann’s operation recently expanded its Langton-area operation from 8,000 square feet to 44,000 square feet. The company employs 60 people full-time, a number expected to rise to about 100 next January. Plans are in the works for a 217,000-square-foot expansion on 97 acres next door. Phase I will be completed this fall. Plans are to eventually grow the production area to 817,000 square feet.
System project manager Wayne Boudreau says consistency of output is critical to large-scale producers of legal marijuana who aspire to brand recognition: “This will probably be the most advanced hybrid greenhouse facility for marijuana when it is done,” Boudreau said at the scene.
