Segra Signs Lease for Second Cannabis Tissue Culture Facility Increasing Estimated Production Capacity to over 30 Million Plants Per Year

Segra International Corp. an agriculture technology company, has officially signed a lease agreement for their second cannabis tissue culture nursery located in Aldergrove, BC. This critical expansion is strategically located with access to international shipping hubs and a large existing agricultural labour pool. “We are thrilled to have reached this point in our expansion process,” says Todd McMurray, CEO and President of Segra International. “As we continue to grow, we will become increasingly more capable of addressing the nursery management needs of the cannabis sector.  Segra would like to extend a special thank you to all the officials in the Township of Langley that have worked with us to make this project possible.”

Upon completion of construction in late 2020 this new facility will have a projected annual output capacity of over 30 million verified disease-free cannabis plantlets per year.  This innovative facility will set a new standard in the plant tissue culture business through implementing numerous new cutting-edge technologies. “As we scale our facilities and services to meet global cannabis demands, state-of-the-art technology combined with world class automation is a must, and that’s exactly what we are doing in Aldergrove,” says Chief Tissue Culture Officer Dr. Sma Zobayed. “Our engineering team has been working for over 6-months on the design for this facility, and we are thrilled that we can now move forward.”
