A hemp-growing company is setting up shop in the Midlands, according to South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster’s Office. Agricultural hemp company SC Canna, LLC, announced plans to establish an indoor growing operation in Clarendon County, the governor’s office said in a news release on Wednesday, the 12th of October.
“The future prosperity of our state depends on a thriving agriculture industry, and it is through investments like this one that will help the industry continue to thrive,” McMaster said in the release.
SC Canna is investing $8.8 million to establish the new operation, according to the release. The company’s move will create 37 jobs at the Clarendon County facility, which is expected to be up and running in 2023, the governor’s office said.
The newly constructed 50,000-square-foot commercial space will be located at the Clarendon County Industrial Park in Manning and will house the company’s proprietary growing system, according to the release.
