Blue Sky Processing LLC, a processor of hemp fiber for a variety of applications, announced plans to locate new operations in Beaufort County. The company’s $2.5 million investment is projected to create 16 new jobs.
Blue Sky Processing is pioneering large-scale extraction of cannabidiol (CBD) and other hemp cannabinoids. Focused on legal and non-psychoactive cannabinoid nutritional supplements, the company will be participating in the S.C. Department of Agriculture’s Hemp Pilot Program and will be renovating an existing property in Beaufort County. Once completed, the facility will be outfitted with processing and analytical equipment, coming online in the first quarter of 2019.
“We are thrilled to have the support from the S.C. Department of Commerce and the Department of Agriculture’s Hemp Pilot Program,” said Jennifer Pfuhl, president. “The future looks very optimistic for hemp cultivators and manufacturers throughout the state.”
