Worthington Industries announces cannabis industry-focused brand, HighpointTM by Worthington Industries

For too long, the legalized cannabis extraction industry has depended on equipment from other sectors to make extraction possible. As the industry matures and new legal states come online, first class extraction facilities realize the importance of implementing and using products and equipment designed with the industry in mind.

Bulk hydrocarbon tanks and hydrocarbon gases are an essential part of the extraction process. Highpoint products represent an industry shift with high-quality, clean and safe stainless steel tanks. Extractors know that in a rapidly-growing industry with a thirst for constant innovation, their processes must be purpose-built from start to finish.

"With Highpoint, we're excited to support the rapidly growing cannabis market by fulfilling an unmet need for storage solutions tailored to this industry," said Bobby Weinberg, product director. "Backed by decades of safety, regulatory and manufacturing expertise, we are elevating the process and setting a new standard together with our customers."

The brand is launching at this year's MJBizCon event in Las Vegas, Nev., October 20 - 22.
