CORAL SPRINGS, Florida, August 10, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
Industrial hemp known as a hardy and renewable resource (one of the earliest domesticated plants known) is quickly becoming a required resource for various industrial applications, including paper, textiles, and cordage. Sustainable hemp seed, fiber and oil are being used in raw materials by major companies, including Ford Motors, Patagonia, and The Body Shop, to make a wide variety of products as a few select Hemp manufacturers race to increase operations as the demand continues to grow.
Hemp, Inc. (OTC: HEMP) executives announced today they expect the first 200,000 pounds of Lost Circulation Materials (LCMs) in inventory to go to market in the next 2 weeks. David Schmitt, COO of Hemp, Inc.'s wholly owned subsidiary, Industrial Hemp Manufacturing, LLC (IHM) is meeting with specific companies next week to ensure the LCMs will be ready to go to market. The company's LCMs are expected to potentially sale for two to three dollars per pound which could bring in revenue of four to six hundred thousand dollars. Schmitt has also been overseeing the final stages of Hemp, Inc.'s 70,000 square foot multi-purpose industrial hemp processing facility and milling operation on 9 acres, in Spring Hope, North Carolina, that is in the final stages of completion. "Hemp, Inc. is strategically positioned at the forefront of the industrial hemp industry and continues to remain ahead of the curve to be able to process industrial hemp and manufacture products made from hemp fiber due to its commercial size and by it being the only one in the United States. Once the milling machinery is operational, Hemp, Inc. will be able to produce thousands of pounds of LCMs a day along with other oil absorbent products," said Bruce Perlowin, CEO of Hemp, Inc.

According to Schmitt, the first shipment of machinery to finish the mill is expected to arrive on August 25, 2016 and the remaining of the machinery will arrive 30 days after the first shipment. The milling machinery parts that were already in the warehouse have already been positioned in its permanent location and will be secured once all the machinery arrives. "Our meeting with the air handler manufacturer, a little over two weeks ago, went extremely well so we are looking forward to the shipments. Once the air handler and dust collector are on-site, we're looking to hire specialized contractors to assist with securing all of the equipment in place which should save us over 3 to 4 weeks in time. Once the rest of the machinery is here, my best guestimate would be 3 weeks for us to have both mills operational," says Schmitt. Schmitt has also been working with Duke Energy to install a new transformer because of all the amperage that will be used. "Everything is really coming together nicely."
