The signing ceremony was presided over by Zhang Yuqiang, President of China Jushi and Chairman and CEO of Jushi Group.
Vice President of China Jushi and President of Jushi Group Yang Guoming signed the Intelligent Manufacturing Base Project with the Director of Management Committee of Tongxiang Economic Development Zone Tu Jianzhong. Vice President of China Jushi Cao Guorong signed the US Project jointly with Nielsen Lindsay, Director of Global Business Development Office of South Carolina Department of Commerce, and Jeff Ruble, Director of Richland County Economic Development Office.
“Located in the state of South Carolina, the Jushi US project will be carried out following the general guideline ‘Locating the production, R&D and HR development sites close to customers and the market to meet the overseas demand with corresponding overseas capacities’, and the products will be supplied solely in the US market. The construction for the project is planned to be started by the end of this year and the production is expected to be started in 2018,” President Zhang explained in a statement.
Governor of South Carolina Nikki Haley addressed the ceremony in a video especially sent for the event.
“The signing of the Jushi US project is a milestone in the strategic development of China Jushi’s globalization, and in the meantime a critical step forward in its pursuit for higher goals.
