SHERBROOKE, QUE. — Rexfab Inc. inaugurated its new plant in Sherbrooke Regional Industrial Park in Sherbrooke, Que. The expansion project already has resulted in significant increases in both the sales figures of this company, which specializes in the manufacture of systems and equipment for the food industry, and in its workforce.
The company’s relocation — which required the construction of a new building covering 17,000 square feet and more than $1.65 million in investments — has made it possible to consolidate 23 full-time jobs and to create 12 new jobs in engineering, mechanical design and automation, the company said. The number of hires is three times higher than the number originally anticipated and includes the services of six subcontractors on a full-time basis.
“We have reached the point of introducing a night shift for design,” said Michel Auger, vice-president, Rexfab. “When our facilities reach their full capacity, it will be time to move on to the second phase of the project, which could occur much earlier than planned if the trend continues.”
Pierre Meunier, president of Rexfab, added, “Thanks to our clients, we work on projects not only in Canada but also in the U.S., Mexico and Latin America. We even have some customers in Europe. We owe our success to our corporate values and to our commitment to developing new markets. On the other hand, we realize that behind the equipment are people, human capital.”
