The ribbon cutting ceremony for the Sundial Growers Inc. flagship cannabis facility in Olds was held on Wednesday, October 10th. Chief Executive Officer Torsten Kuenzlen thanks all of their staff, the contractors and the Town of Olds for supporting Sundial.
The Chief Executive Officer for Sundial Growers says they will be able to grow a quarter of a million cannabis plants when their 500,000 square foot facility is completed early next year.
Torsten Kuenzlen updated Sundial's efforts during the phase 1 ribbon cutting ceremony to mark the opening of the company's flagship facility in Olds on Wednesday, October 10th.
He says this is a tremendous opportunity for Sundial to be the only craft grower at scale with tremendous quality.
Kuenzlen notes the timing of the ribbon cutting is fitting with the legalization of cannabis in Canada just around the corner.
Kuenzlen says it is exciting times for Olds, Alberta and Canada.
He adds, when construction is done by early next year, Sundial will have about 500,000 square feet with 140 fully purposed modular rooms where they can control every room individually.
Kuenzlen feels the entire Olds corridor really embraced cannabis early with the development of facilities and he believes there are many opportunities to lead a global industry.
The legalization date for recreational of cannabis in Canada is next Wednesday, October 17th.
