Industrial Hemp Manufacturing, LLC (IHM) is a global company that produces quality natural fiber and other cellulose based products for major growth markets. IHM is a wholly owned subsidiary of Hemp, Inc. and is based in Spring Hope, North Carolina USA.
IHM owns the largest and only hemp fiber decortication plant of its size in North America. The company is focused on manufacturing hemp and kenaf fiber to produce natural sustainable products for worldwide markets. This year, the company acquired Bob Hughes as V.P. of Sales. Having been the President of BioTech Mills (www.biotechmills.com) Bob not only brings his years of experience, but also his many connections to this industry.
One of first the products IHM will produce is DrillWall™, a tested drilling material called loss circulation material (LCM) that is used by many major oil, water and gas companies. Loss circulation of drilling fluids can have severe impact on time, money and the safety of any project, and DrillWall™ provides a valuable solution to these risks. IHM management was key in developing this product years ago for the oil and gas drilling industry, and it has had a positive impact on many large projects.
IHM also will produce SpillSuck™, a super absorbent biodegradable material made from the core of kenaf and hemp plants. According to a Navy study, the core material has been found to be a super absorbent natural material. SpillSuck™ products are used for oil and chemical spill cleanups by many first responders and mechanic shops.
SpillSuck™ was one of the products used to help cleanup the BP Deepwater Horizon oil spill. Fox News reported the efforts to help save numerous animals and wildlife, including many baby pelicans in the Gulf’s pelican rookeries using SpillSuck™. It can also be sold in retail markets for cleaning up oil or liquid spills on garage floors, driveways, accidents and more.
The IHM management team has over 50 years of experience in growing fiber plants, plant fiber manufacturing and industrial fiber applications. Industrial Hemp Manufacturing, LLC. is positioned to be the leader in the industrial hemp manufacturing industry because of its forward planning in this growing industry.
It’s been many years since hemp was a commodity, but with all the activity and push for state legislation and the Industrial Hemp Farming Act in congress, we see it is only a matter of time before hemp is once again a sustainable commodity.
