SC Canna Expands in South Carolina
SC Canna LLC, an agricultural hemp company, plans to invest $8.8 million to establish its indoor growing operations in Clarendon County, South Carolina. The investment is projected to create 37 new jobs.
SC Canna LLC a subsidiary of Sirius-A-Bioscience, is an integrated grower and distributor of medical-grade hemp products. Founded by native South Carolinians, the company specializes in aeroponics, which allows hemp to be grown indoors from seed to wholesale.
Located at the Clarendon County Industrial Park, the newly constructed 50,000-square-foot commercial space will house the company’s proprietary growing system.
“We are very excited about growing SC Canna LLC in our own backyard. Our high-tech grow system will be the first of its kind in South Carolina,” says Thomas Schipper, SC Canna LLC managing partner. “We look forward to cultivating and strengthening our ability to provide as many therapeutic resources as possible to our healthcare customers. The governor and the South Carolina Department of Commerce, as well as the Clarendon County Economic Development team were instrumental in the expansion of our operations. We are truly grateful for their leadership.”
Operations are expected to be online in 2023.
