The company has made great strides supported by a team of 80 hardworking, dedicated employees in Las Vegas. We anticipate that 2020 will be CLS Nevada's best year and are carefully managing growth while increasing margins and profitability. The month of January 2020 also marked double digit positive gross margin expansion while running ahead of our CLS Nevada operating plan. CLS Nevada continues to be cash flow positive, which facilitates all our growth and capital improvements.
Moving forward in 2020, we expect to see substantial revenue and margin expansion from our newly built conversion and extraction facility in North Las Vegas, NV. We have begun to manufacture for a number of third parties and are creating an entire new line of effect-based products to be launched soon. These products will be unique and differentiated in the Nevada cannabis market".
