May 2, 2016 – The doors are open at Ouellet Canada’s new 45,000-sf distribution centre in Montmagny, Que.
Located at 270 Corriveau Ave., this “completely renovated” building will house the shipping, storage and repackaging activities of the Ouellet, Momento and Global Commander brands, most of which are manufactured at the L’Islet, Que. plant.
The company says $3.5 million was invested into transforming the old Corriveau factory. The centre also freed up space in L’Islet to help “consolidate the manufacturing floor heating systems and cables manufactured in Quebec City”.
Ouellet says it is also working on two other projects as part of its modernization plan: automation of electric baseboard assembly (an investment of $2 million) and implementation of a new enterprise management computer system (an investment of $3 million).
Ouellet Canada is part of the Ouellet Canada Group Inc., which also owns Industries Dettson Inc. (Sherbrooke, Que.), Hazloc Heaters (Calgary, Alta.), and Nanjing Ouellet in China.
