Temescal Wellness grand opening

North Adams, MA – Temescal Wellness recently celebrated the grand opening of its new 71,400sf cannabis grow facility in North Adams. The facility will increase the company’s production and cultivation capacity, allowing it to expand its portfolio of product offerings for consumers throughout the region.

Temescal Wellness partnered with design-build general contractor ARCO National Construction for the project, a renovation of an existing building owned by Innovative Industrial Properties. In addition to interior renovations, the project included structural upgrades and exterior modifications to accommodate new equipment and lighting.

“At the forefront of this project is our new and larger state-of-the-art cultivation space, which paves the way for expanded manufacturing and production space.  North Adams is a community with natural beauty, a strong available workforce, and the city has been great to work with,” said Alex Hardy, CEO of Temescal Wellness. “We recognize consumers are eager for high quality flower, as well as novel, innovative and functional cannabis products. In addition to expanded flower lineages and offerings, we are looking forward to delivering marijuana infused products like our cartridges and edibles to more people, in addition to new products we are developing in our product pipeline.”

The facility features a 61,800sf production area including 1,376 LED grow lights. State-of-the-art automation features include movable grow benching, pot filler, transplanter, and a table return crane. The building also includes a management system to monitor and control the HVAC, fertigation, and automated equipment.  Once fully operational, the facility will employ approximately 80 people.
