Vantage Hemp to start production at Greeley site next week

GREELEY — Vantage Hemp Co., a Denver-based wholesaler of CBD and hemp products, is days away from finishing construction of its two production buildings totalling 60,000 square feet in west Greeley.

Vantage Hemp co-founder Brent Boisvert told BizWest the company plans to end construction July 17 at the HighPointe Business Park and begin extraction and distillation shortly after.

The plant is capable of producing between 80,000 and 100,000 liters of oils and extract annually. Boisvert said the plant will employ between 30 to 40 people, including experts already at the company and between eight to 10 machine operators who have yet to be hired.

Boisvert, a former lawyer from Canada, moved to Denver to start the venture with hemp experts in the state. He said HighPointe has land available to build additional production facilities to meet future demand.

“As the markets grow, Vantage Hemp would like to grow with it,” he said. “And that’s another reason why we chose the HighPointe Business Park, because it gives us that opportunity to expand on our current buildings.”

Vantage Hemp’s facility is coming online weeks after Mile High Labs purchased Sandoz Inc.’s 400,000-square foot pharmaceutical factory in Broomfield for conversion into a CBD product plant.

Note: a previous version of this story said Vantage Hemp’s plant was slated to finish construction on June 17. The correct date is July 17.
