Med​iPharm Labs

Three yellow rounds

​MediPharm Labs is a company to watch in the cannabis industry and they are located right here in Simcoe County. Founded in 2015, MediPharm Labs is a global leader in specialized, research-driven cannabis extraction, distillation and purification through bulk wholesale and white-label production. Their one-of-a-kind facility in the City of Barrie has state-of-the-art technologies and critical cleanroom environments, designed to ISO standards. MediPharm Labs’ investment in an expert team and leading-edge technology, along with downstream purification methodologies and five primary extraction lines ​gives the company 300,000 KG of annual processing capacity to deliver purified and precisely-dosed cannabis products to its customers.

Company leaders and trailblazers Pat McCutcheon, Chief Executive Officer and Keith Strachan, President, dreamed of creating an organization that stood out in the cannabis industry and they are executing on their vision. They have built an exceptional company of highly-talented and engaged employees who feel passion and pride in their work. Their workplace breeds innovation, staying on the forefront of the industry through the imagination and collaboration of their team and partners.

Growing from only six (6) employees in early 2018 to over 200 employees today, MediPharm Labs has created a great place to work – one that is contributing to the regional economy and has forged an entirely new ‘extraction-only’ segment in the Canadian cannabis industry.

“It’s been a record-paced year since recreational cannabis was legalized and we commenced sales in this new groundbreaking industry. The years of hard work building the company from the ground up have paid off,” said Keith Strachan, President, MediPharm Labs. “We are extremely proud to be a leading manufacturer in the city of Barrie. The strong local community support has been a cornerstone in our journey towards establishing MediPharm Labs as a top global cannabis company, but with roots firmly planted in the heart of the city for years to come.” 

They support the local community by taking leadership roles as community speakers, volunteers, and by becoming members in local groups such as the Barrie Chamber of Commerce, Rotary Club of Barrie, Xcelerate Summit, The United Way and Georgian College. MediPharm Labs also provides financial support of the “MediPharm Innovation Space” at the SandBox Centre in downtown Barrie. Just last week, MediPharm Labs received the Manufacturing Business Excellence Award at the Greater Barrie Chamber of Commerce Business Awards.

MediPharm Labs prides itself in paying good wages, offering an exceptional benefits plan and hiring top talent including researchers, scientists, engineers, and technicians who deliver on quality and innovation through research, discipline and forward-thinking.
