Hempitecture will now supply US grown & processed material
Hempitecture, a company focused on hemp derived biocomposite building materials & technologies announced today it has secured a strategic supply agreement with the leading US biofiber processor, Sunstrand LLC. This agreement is foundational in domesticating Hempitecture’s supply chain and supporting the American Industrial Hemp Industry.
As the preeminent supplier of natural fiber reinforcements & fillers, and the North American leader of industrial hemp materials, Sunstrand is able to provide Hempitecture a critical portion of its supply chain: US grown and processed building grade hurd for biocomposite applications such as hempcrete.
“Sunstrand is leading the way in fiber processing capabilities, which creates value for both farmers and companies like ours that can integrate their processed materials into products,” said Matthew Mead, founder of Hempitecture. “We believe in a scalable future for our hemp derived biocomposite materials, and regionally grown & processed feedstock is of cornerstone importance to the realization of that future.”
Adam Block, VP Sales and Marketing at Sunstrand is enthusiastic. “We are excited to support Hempitecture as they continue to scale. We are pleased that our highly-engineered materials are a great fit for their products and services.”
“It’s about much more than just being able to now supply building projects in North America,” said Mead speaking of the partnership. “Sunstrand is partnering with farming communities to build reliable and sustainable supply chains, which in turn means that we’re supporting a future for more sustainable agriculture right here in the United States. We’re thrilled to source for our supply chain through a mission-driven company like Sunstrand.”
Through the agreement, Hempitecture Inc. is now able to use Sunstrand's building grade processed hemp hurd for biocomposite applications at costs competitive to international suppliers. “Grown here, processed here, and built here - that’s the future we’ve worked towards and it’s happening now,” concluded Mead.
