The Legalization of Cannabis is Spreading Globally

Project Profile: Acreage Pharms

Working collaboratively with Acreage Pharms, the Startec team designed and built a custom, industrial HVAC solution for their 40,000 sq. ft. production facility.

The Client Challenge

Acreage Pharms Ltd. is a licensed producer of cannabis for the medical market under Canada’s Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (ACMPR). However, with the legalization of recreational cannabis in Canada, the company was looking to expand and construct a state-of-the-art production facility in time to meet expected consumer demand, both locally and internationally.

"Darryl had recommended the Startec team to me at a time when I was in great need of an expert HVAC system provider. We needed a supplier who could help Acreage Pharms efficiently and effectively expand our Cannabis facility. Time was also of the essence as we needed to design and implement the business expansion within a short period to meet the high customer demand following the Cannabis Act coming into effect.

The team at Startec were able to be nimble and innovative right off the bat. With their collaborative approach, we were able to create a custom system that met our needs and was ready for operation within our time constraints.

It was an easy and stress-free experience to work with Startec, and within minutes of working with them, it was clear they knew what they were doing and how to provide us with the most cost effective and energy efficient solution. I would highly recommend Startec as a top HVAC solutions provider."
