BSC Group acquired by MariMed

Written by Marc Schwarz

The New Jersey-based cannabis firm, BSC Group, was acquired on Monday, Oct. 24, by MariMed Inc., a multi-state cannabis organization that develops, owns and manages cannabis facilities and branded products lines.

BSC Group, founded and managed by Brian and Amber Staffa, has been engaged in competitive licensing, consulting and operations management across the country the last three years.

Both Staffas will join the MariMed leadership team. Brian will be the Vice President of Cultivation & Manufacturing, leveraging nearly 10 years of commercial cannabis experience in over 150 facilities in 25 states and countries.  Amber will be the Vice President of Branding & Marketing, fueling the potential for product development and partnership opportunities.

“This partnership with MariMed represented the right opportunity to solidify our industry presence for the long haul, positioning ourselves as an integral element of an established team with long term viability. They share our belief that the only path to market maturation and true consumer satisfaction is via an unwavering commitment to data-driven and documented, scaled processes,” Brian said in a statement announcing the deal.

“Our team has worked with BSC Group on various projects in the past, and their laser focus made them an ideal partner to help fuel MariMed’s forward momentum,” said MariMed CEO Bob Fireman. “We are excited to bring on Amber and Brian, who have seasoned cannabis operations, corporate strategy, branding and marketing expertise. An organization is only as good as the people in it. The Staffas share our vision and work ethic and will be a great addition to our team.”

BSC Group will become a wholly owned subsidiary of MariMed.
