With the first payment secured, in the next month AXIM Biotech will work with the builder and architects on drafting building plans and a detailed engineering building plan with respect to permit applications and subsequent approvals.

“We are extremely grateful to the government of the province of Flevoland for allowing AXIM Biotech to establish manufacturing in Almere,” states Dr. George E. Anastassov, MD, DDS, MBA and Chief Executive Officer of AXIM Biotech. “The factory plans are compliant with the highest European and International standards and will produce unique pharmaceutical and nutraceutical products – all from agricultural hemp.”
AXIM Biotechnologies is planning the state-of-the-art Almere facility to feature: a clean laboratory zone, storage areas, office and technical rooms as well as manufacturing facility furnishings. AXIM’s global manufacturing hub in Almere will have the capacity to process raw materials and manufacture the Company’s innovative hemp-based pharmaceutical, nutraceutical and consumer products, which are all based on their own intellectual property. Project design and feasibility has begun and the Company is targeting the completion of construction by 2017.
“This is an exciting time for life sciences as AXIM establishes a fully ‘green’ agricultural hemp-based biotech manufacturing facility,” states Lekhram Changoer, MSc., BSc., and Chief Technical Officer. “At AXIM, the hemp manufacturing byproducts will be used and result in a net negative carbon footprint that is beneficial to the environment.”
