US (PA): Grower to expand Shamokin Dam plant

Insa is proposing a major expansion of its medical cannabis-growing operation less than a year after opening the plant on the former Sunbury Generation property.

The Shamokin Dam planning board was notified Wednesday of the Massachusetts-based company's plans to build a two-story, 100,000-square-foot building on the property, more than tripling the existing 38,400-square-foot plant that began operating in late January.

Borough Manager Ed Hovenstine said the company also has an option to build an additional 20,000-foot structure. "Virtually all of it will be for growing" cannabis at the state-approved facility, he said. 

Insa Chief Financial Officer Peter Gallagher could not be reached Thursday morning for comment. Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, Gallagher said this summer that the plant was on track to be fully operational with between 50 and 75 employees by late summer.
