FIGR, Inc. Begins Early Works Program at Simcoe Facility

Published: May 15, 2019

FIGR, Inc., a vertically-integrated legal Canadian cannabis company, announced the commencement of an early works program at its Simcoe, Ontario, facility. The program comes in advance of the ground-breaking and construction activities planned for the 20-acre property—located adjacent to its current Ontario operation—purchased in August 2018.

“This is a very important step for our Simcoe facility,” said Harvey Carroll, President of FIGR, Inc. “By initiating the early works program, we maintain our construction timeline for the facility expansion, working toward the 2021 completion date.”

The early works program mainly consists of earth excavation and tree site clearing to prepare the land for the more than 800,000 square foot facility expansion, which, when completed as anticipated, will accommodate additional growing space and processing facilities. The Ontario expansion, together with the company’s nearly completed buildout of its Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island facility, will increase FIGR’s total production capacity potential to more than 140,000 kg per year when completed. Additionally, FIGR’s total footprint will grow to more than 1.1 million square feet upon completion of both facilities’ buildouts.
