April 7, 2017 – The Brandt Group of Companies says it has concluded its purchase of the former Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems Canada Ltd. (MHPSC) facility in Saskatoon from Prestige Equipment and Hilco Global.
“We are very excited to have successfully completed this major expansion so quickly,” says Shaun Semple, president of Brandt Group. ”It is an important milestone for the company, as doubling our manufacturing footprint will open up significant opportunities to grow our current product offering and create high-value skilled trades jobs in the province.”
The acquisition of this facility has increased Brandt’s total manufacturing footprint to over 500,000 sf, split evenly between Regina and Saskatoon, according to the company. Brandt notes it is currently in planning to determine an optimal return-to-operations schedule for the facility, but says it has already begun hiring local workers to aid in bringing the facility up to the company’s exacting LEAN standards as quickly as possible.
