SC Canna Plans Manning, South Carolina, Indoor Growing Complex

SC Canna, an agricultural hemp company, will establish an indoor growing operation at Clarendon County Industrial Park in Manning, South Carolina. The $8.8 million project is expected to create 37 jobs.

The newly 50,000-square-foot commercial space will house the company’s proprietary growing system. Operations are planned for 2023.

“We are very excited about growing SC Canna, LLC in our own backyard. Our high-tech grow system will be the first of its kind in South Carolina. We look forward to cultivating and strengthening our ability to provide as many therapeutic resources as possible to our healthcare customers. The governor and the South Carolina Department of Commerce, as well as the Clarendon County Economic Development team were instrumental in the expansion of our operations. We are truly grateful for their leadership,” SC Canna, LLC Managing Partner Thomas Schipper.

SC Canna, LLC, a subsidiary of Sirius-A-Bioscience, is an integrated grower and distributor of medical-grade hemp products. The company specializes in aeroponics, which allows hemp to be grown indoors from seed to wholesale.

“Companies of all types are planting their seeds in South Carolina because of our business-friendly environment and talented workforce. We congratulate SC Canna, LLC on its $8.8 million investment that will create 37 new jobs in one of our state’s rural communities,” Secretary of Commerce Harry M. Lightsey III noted.

This company introduces a unique opportunity for the county, and throughout South Carolina, to enter a market of agricultural production that’s not yet been explored in our state,” added Central SC Alliance Chairman Matthew Shaffer.
