Agrify recently closed its acquisition of PurePressure, a company that has solventless extraction and advanced ice water hash processing equipment in the cannabis and hemp industry. With the acquisition of PurePressure, Agrify has strengthened its rapidly expanding extraction division by adding best-in-class solutions to its product portfolio in two of the fastest-growing subcategories in the cannabis and hemp extraction market. In addition to its other extraction solutions, Agrify can now offer its customers premium solventless processing products and rosin presses to support any operation, big or small. The Company also inherits PurePressure’s intellectual property, talent, and stellar reputation for quality, reliability, precision, control, and exceptional customer service. PurePressure’s annual revenue for 2021 is approximately $10 million, and the acquisition is expected to be accretive in early 2022. By combining PurePressure with Precision Extraction Solutions and Cascade Sciences, two other recent acquisitions made by Agrify, the company has formed the largest and the most powerful cannabis and hemp extraction solution provider in the world.
