Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – December 3, 2020) – PeakBirch Logic Inc. (CSE: PKB) (FSE: KYH2) (“PeakBirch” or the “Company”) is proud to announce further global expansion into the UK market by entering into a relationship with AF Trading Ltd (“AF Trading”) which allows PeakBirch and AF Trading to partner to provide PeakBirch’s customers with access to a premium selection of vaporizers, glass, and accessory brands.
By entering into a relationship with AF Trading, PeakBirch will have gained vital access to a distribution facility in the UK that will enable it to service a new market through its portfolio of niche e-commerce websites, including NamasteVapes.com, and EveryoneDoesIt.com.
On November 1st, 2018 the UK legalized medicinal cannabis. The market is estimated to have 4.7 million cannabis users, and the market value is estimated to reach US$3 billion (£2.3 billion) by 2024. It is rapidly growing from an estimated starting point of approximately US$190,000 (£147,200) in 2019, as reported in the UK Cannabis report that is based on NHSBSA data gathered between November 2018 and August 2019 for England only.
“We are excited about entering into a relationship with AF Trading and the access it grants us to the UK market. We see a great potential in this new market. There are many comparable indicators that follow the same growth and regulatory trends we saw in Canada when it first legalized medicinal cannabis in 2001,” says Marc Mulvaney, CEO of PeakBirch. “By leveraging our existing brand relationships, our technology, and our new relationship with AF Trading we are well positioned to open up our brands to new customers in the UK. We expect to carve out a sizeable market share. In terms of potential revenue, we see the UK as a favorable place to do business with fewer competitors compared to the US and a market size of approximately 4.7 million cannabis customers.”
“Having access to a facility in the UK shields us in case of a disruptions in supply lines from Europe. PeakBirch is well positioned to handle any instabilities that may arise due to Brexit. The UK represents another step in our global expansion plans which include establishing a strong presence across Europe.”
