Canadian marijuana producer WeedMD is closing a facility in Bowmanville, Ontario in order to centralize medical cannabis distribution at its Aylmer, Ontario site. WeedMD “has offered relocation and severance packages, where applicable, to about 20 employees,” the company said in a Thursday news release “All our Bowmanville employees were invited to apply for open positions at our other sites — for which we offered relocation packages where applicable,” wrote WeedMD spokeswoman Marianella de la Barrera in an email to Marijuana Business Daily. “Unfortunately, with our London, (Ontario)-area facilities located over 250 kilometers west of Bowmanville, the majority opted for severance packages as they did not wish to relocate.” The 14,850-square-foot Bowmanville facility was used for “product research, processing, and fulfillment,” according to a regulatory filing. In addition to its remaining Aylmer facility, “which specializes in cannabis extraction and processing,” WeedMD also operates a greenhouse and outdoor cultivation facility in Strathroy, Ontario.
