Upon closing, Lineage will deploy an integration and performance improvement plan to maximize value using best-in-class operating procedures and marketing strategies.
Peter Bilodeau, CEO of Lineage, commented – “With this acquisition, we’re executing on our growth strategy to meet the increasing demand for high-quality craft cannabis in Oregon and along the I-5 Corridor. We’re excited to welcome the Terpene Station team to our corporate family and look forward to working in concert with them to integrate these assets.”
