Both the EVIO Labs division and Keystone Labs offer quality testing for the regulated cannabis industry.
EVIO’s aggressive expansion into new markets, and the growth of the cannabis industry, was cited by Singular Research as it projected EVIO, Inc. to reach $10 million in revenues by FY2019 (http://cnw.fm/M1mhX). It noted a New Frontier Data estimate that the U.S. legal cannabis market will grow to $24.1 billion by 2025 (http://cnw.fm/WT5aY).
EVIO, Inc. is a leading provider of cannabis testing and scientific research for the regulated cannabis industry. The company’s EVIO Labs division operates coast-to-coast, providing state-mandated ancillary services to ensure the safety and quality of the nation’s cannabis supply. EVIO is on track to have 18 of its state-of-the-art testing facilities by year-end 2018.
Keystone Labs is a contract-testing laboratory licensed to offer a wide array of testing services, including testing of medical cannabis. It holds a Health Canada Controlled Substance License and is a licensed Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) laboratory with a Health Canada license.
The launch of the new company and its binding agreement for acquisition marks EVIO’s first international expansion.
