Canopy Growth announces 50% increase in flower production space and tripling of fulfilment capacity at Tweed Smiths Falls campus
SMITHS FALLS, ON, March 23, 2017 /CNW/ – Tweed Inc. (“Tweed”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Canopy Growth Corporation (TSX: WEED) (OTC: TWMJF) (“Canopy Growth” or “the Company”), is pleased to announce the licensing of additional facilities at its flagship Smiths Falls campus, including new grow rooms that will increase flowering space by 50 percent.
This phase of construction evolves our design and comes in on time and on budget. We’ve found operational efficiencies that we believe make our existing and newly licensed rooms materially more efficient than they were two years ago. This means more products to market and more variety for customers.
Bruce Linton, Chairman & CEO, Canopy Growth
Tweed has also received licensing approval for a number of additional rooms targeted at value-added production and operational expansion, including several new fulfilment rooms that will triple Tweed’s order fulfilment capacity.
“While more growing space is imperative to our ability to meet demand, we also must be able to scale with increasingly more sophisticated processes and facilities to accommodate rapidly accelerating order demand today and into the future,” said Linton.
Following the recent purchase of the 470,000 sq. ft. Hershey Drive campus, expansion work is now fully underway to further increase growing space, value-add processing, product formulation and logistics facilities at the Tweed campus.
Here’s to future growth (and shipments).
