This morning, in preparation for an expanding medicinal cannabis program and adult-use market, the Revolution held a groundbreaking ceremony adjacent to its cultivation facility in Delavan, Illinois.
The groundbreaking signals as the beginning of construction for ‘phase 4’, which is scheduled to be completed by June 2020. The new phase of construction and build-out will more than double Revolution’s existing cultivation production capacity, bringing its operational footprint to 150,000 sq. feet.
With the increase of operational and production capacity, the Revolution plans to nearly double its workforce, adding an estimated 60 new employment positions.
Other preparations have begun simultaneously to phase 4, including an additional expansion to the overall campus, which is set to add a new, 5,000 sq. feet connecting building that will serve as the new main-entrance.
