CAMBRIDGE, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- TILT Holdings Inc. (“TILT” or the “Company”) (CSE: TILT) (OTCQB: SVVTF), a leading provider of products and services to businesses operating in the cannabis industry, today announced that on Tuesday, April 2nd, the City Council of Taunton, Massachusetts voted 8-1 to grant a special permit to operate an adult-use cannabis manufacturing facility to Commonwealth Alternative Care (“CAC”), an indirect wholly owned subsidiary of TILT.
The permit allows a 19,602 square foot adult-use manufacturing facility at 16 Mozzone Boulevard, adjacent to TILT’s existing world-class cultivation, processing and dispensary facility at 30 Mozzone Boulevard, and will significantly enhance the Company’s capacity to produce high-quality infused cannabis products at scale. The facility expansion will also enable the implementation of high-end automated manufacturing and packaging equipment, further allowing TILT to deliver end-to-end services and customer solutions to cannabis businesses.
“We appreciate the support of the Taunton City Council and their vote to grant this facility expansion permit, which will allow us to increase production capacity and provide greater consumer access to premium cannabis products throughout Massachusetts, while enhancing our ability to provide comprehensive services to our customers throughout the cannabis supply chain,” said Alex Coleman, Chief Executive Officer of TILT. “As the Massachusetts adult-use market develops, this capacity expansion positions TILT to provide manufacturing products and services to brands across the country as they seek to enter this growing market. This expansion will also bring new, well-paying jobs and economic development opportunities to the Taunton area while increasing the city’s tax revenue.”
From seed to final product, TILT’s culinary and grow teams at CAC work together to create products that set a new standard in taste, consistency and efficacy. In conjunction with TILT’s science team and extraction facilities, the Company is in the process of developing next generation products for novel form factors and customized experience.
The state-of-the-art facility is expected to be operational in the spring of 2020. Earlier this year, the City Council granted a permit to TILT to expand its existing cultivation capacity in the 98,000 square foot facility at 30 Mozzone Boulevard.
