Evio Buys MRX Labs, CLS Holdings Closes On Oasis

The deals continue to happen in the cannabis space with lab company EVIO’s expansion in Oregon and CLS Holdings closing on its Oasis acquisition.

EVIO

EVIO Inc.  (EVIO) entered into an asset purchase agreement with Oregon-based MRX Labs. The company said that it has also formed a strategic alliance with MRX Xtractors which will develop and expand growth in existing and new markets.

According to the company statement, EVIO Inc. will acquire 100% of the assets of MRX Labs, LLC including equipment, real estate, customer lists, customer contracts, rental agreements, and equipment leases. EVIO Labs Portland will relocate its personnel and license to the Tigard facility. The transaction is expected to close on or before July 11, 2018.

“We are excited about the opportunity to further expand our reach and solidify our position as the dominant testing lab in Oregon,” said William Waldrop, CEO of EVIO. “As the Oregon market matures, there is a consolidation of the marketplace occurring, and this alliance is a win-win for both of our companies and our customers.”

MRX Labs, LLC, and MRX Xtractors, founded by Paul Tomaso, CEO and CTO, and Jonah Barber, President, have been research and development, design and engineering pioneers in both analytical testing and extraction technologies. “This relationship with EVIO affords MRX Xtractors an opportunity for us to focus on the global expansion of our extraction technologies, and to unite our testing lab with a company of scientists and professionals whom we trust will take great care of our loyal lab customers and employees,” said Barber. “We are thrilled with our newly formed alliance that gives us great confidence to refer our extraction customers, across the US and Canada, to EVIO’s network of labs and vice-versa.”

EVIO’s Lori Glauser spoke to Green Market Report not long ago about the company’s expansion plans in this video.
