1933 Industries Prepares to Move into its New Cultivation Facility
VANCOUVER, April 10, 2019 /CNW/ - 1933 Industries Inc. (the "Company" or "1933 Industries") (CSE: TGIF) (OTCQX: TGIFF), a licensed cultivator and producer of cannabis flower and concentrates and manufacturer of hemp-derived CBD wellness products, is pleased to announce that its subsidiary, Alternative Medicine Association ("AMA") is making preparations to move into its new advanced cannabis cultivation facility as the construction phase comes to an end.
Temporary Certificate of Occupancy and Business License
The Company is pleased to report that permanent power was recently established by Nevada Energy to the facility and that it anticipates receiving a Temporary Certificate of Occupancy ("TCO") by the end of April. Grow equipment will be fully installed 3-4 weeks after the TCO has been received.
Following TCO receipt, the Company will work with the various local and state departments including, Health & Safety, Air Quality, Business License, Fire Prevention, etc., to receive final inspection approvals, which will trigger a Certificate of Occupancy ("CO"). This process is estimated to take 3 weeks to obtain. The Company has also submitted requests to the County and the State to approve the change of location of the Company's cultivation licenses to the new cultivation facility. The applications have been submitted and are under review, and are expected to be approved shortly after receipt of a CO.
After the CO and change of location have been obtained, operations will begin, and AMA will focus on ramping up cultivation to achieve full production capacity. The facility is segregated into 5 different zones with a total of 15 bloom rooms and 4 veg rooms. The cannabis plants will move into a new zone every 12 days during their life cycle, and after 90-120 days the facility is expected to be utilized and operating at full capacity.
The new cultivation facility will employ an estimated 50 people and arrangements have already been put in place to gradually increase staffing during the ramp up phase. The Company anticipates cultivating approximately 700-800 lbs. of flower per month once at full capacity.
Mr. Chris Rebentisch, USA COO and Founder of Infused commented,
The new facility is a vital component of the Company's strategy, ensuring the consistent supply of cannabis flower and input material for our AMA branded concentrates and white label production. The increased capacity, coupled with efficiencies in production and economies of scale will undoubtedly improve yields and provide higher margins.
