BEND, OR -- A Nevada-based cannabis consulting and testing firm is relocating its headquarters to Bend. Lori Glauser, President of Signal Bay, Inc., says the company recently acquired CannAlytical Research in Bend, and is in the process of buying two other labs in Eugene and Medford. "These labs ensure the safety of cannabis. They test for the presence of pesticides, as well as identify the potency of the cannabis and other microbiological contaminants and other contaminants that would be harmful to cannabis."
She tells KBND News moving the corporate operations to Central Oregon was just logical. "Aside from the fact that Bend happens to be our first acquisition, it’s really a lovely town. Of course, it’s somewhat geographically central to the state and we also see that it’s a great place to attract talent from other parts of the country. We find it to be really attracting an entrepreneurial mindset and people coming in from all over to join in a place with a great quality of life."
Glauser says Signal Bay's new headquarters will move in with the existing lab on O.B. Riley Road. "Right now, it’s relatively small; a few thousand square fee. We can host about six or seven employees at that location; but that’s not to say we couldn’t grow into a larger location in the future as we grow as a company."
