In Memory of Niels Hansen-Trip
American Hemp met Niels in the summer of 2010, while attending the Ontario Hemp Alliance's Field Day. After an afternoon and evening of conversation, a bond formed over a common passion and mission: to grow the industrial hemp fiber industry to its true potential.
For the next several years Niels was influential in the project development and strategy for American Hemp's fiber processing facility plans. His ten years of project management experience and vision to implement a Total Quality Management (TQM) system in the early 2000's before the concept and term was a commonality, not only helped, but inspired American Hemp.
American Hemp is honored to have had this gentleman involved in their lives and business.
