According to 4Front CEO Leo Gontmakher, the acquisition is the first step in a broader California strategy that supports the company's decision to construct one of the cannabis industry's largest processing centers.

Gontmakher says the acquisition will help reduce production costs and scale volume of the Island Cannabis brand.

Island Cannabis founder and CEO, Ray Landgraf, COO Brandon Mills, and the company's leadership team will make the transition.

  • A 170,000 sq. ft. manufacturing facility outside of Los Angeles.
