GTEC enters into agreement to acquire facility in Kelowna

A second expansion site is on the books for a cannabis company in Kelowna.

GTEC and Canopy Growth Corporation entered into a purchase and sale agreement to acquire a second facility which, given a receipt of cultivation license by Health Canada, will increase GTEC’s annual production capacity by 4,000 kg.

This would bring the company’s total annual output to 18,000 kg through 160,00 sq. ft. of indoor flowering space by 2020.
