Smithers, an international testing company, has agreed to purchase the cannabis testing company Midway Lab, based in Columbus, Ohio.
The acquisition will extend Smithers’ cannabis testing services into the state; the company already tests cannabis in Illinois, Massachusetts, and New York.
The company also recently purchased another cannabis testing business in Arizona from Green Scientific Labs.
The Midway Lab acquisition will bring Smithers’ cannabis testing services to a total of five US states.
“Smithers is excited to enter the cannabis testing market in our home state,” Michael Hochschwender, CEO of Smithers, said in a statement on May 11. “Ohio is prepared and positioned to be a significant cannabis state in the Midwest.”
