TORONTO and WARREN, Mich., Jan. 18, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Red White & Bloom Brands Inc. (CSE: RWB and OTC:RWBYF) (“RWB” or the “Company”) a multi-state cannabis operator and house of premium brands, via its RWB Michigan LLC wholly owned subsidiary, has closed on a lease assignment for a 15,000 sq. ft. manufacturing/processing and distribution facility in Warren, Michigan and has been issued both Medical and Adult Use (aka “recreational”) licenses. Operations at the facility commenced this week. RWB will immediately begin manufacturing medical and adult use cannabis products with all necessary equipment already installed and inspections completed.
“This Warren facility allows us to centralize distribution for our ‘house of premium brands’ in Michigan and finally report all of our Platinum Vape™ wholesale sales on a much less confusing and straightforward basis,” announced RWB CEO and Chairman Brad Rogers. “We will be expanding the wildly popular Platinum Vape brand to include gummies and chocolates to capitalize on the existing brand equity we command in Michigan. The facility provides the production capacity to expand sales of our award-winning brands from the 250+ Michigan dispensaries that carry them to the state’s 400+ dispensaries.”
Hiring 30 full-time employees
RWB Michigan will now begin to hire 30 full-time employees in the coming weeks, with intentions to grow the workforce in Warren to 50 in 2022. A wide variety of positions are available including many higher-paid, skilled positions ranging from frontline employees to PhDs specializing in product formulations. To apply, email inquiries and credentials to email@example.com. In addition, visit www.RedWhiteBloom.com for more information and the job fair links once they are available.
Platinum Vape Product Expansion
Although most frequently recognized as a leading vape brand, RWB’s expanded Platinum Vape portfolio includes gummies, chocolates and premium cannabis flower that have proven to be very popular in California. RWB expects to launch PV gummy and chocolate production immediately and, for the first time, offer these products outside of California. PV is quickly gaining recognition, with ArcView/Greentank’s 2021 Q3 Industry Vape Report naming Platinum Vape as the #1 brand vape cartridge in Michigan, LeafLink naming it a Biggest Brand in Michigan, and winning a Thrillist “Best of 2020” Edible Award for its Baked Apple Pie Gummies and a Farmer’s Cup 2nd place for its Raspberry Cheesecake Chocolate Bar. RWB will continue to work on new and exciting formulations and flavors for launch in Michigan and beyond.
