Speaking at the groundbreaking ceremony on Monday afternoon, Sherbrooke Mayor Steve Lussier hailed it as the biggest factory ever to be built in the city of Sherbrooke; a $575 million facility on Kruger’s existing property alongside the Saint-Francis River in Brompton that, when completed, will be equipped with Canada’s most advanced and best-performing TAD air-drying technology. “It’s an exciting day for all of us at Kruger Products,” said Dino Bianco, CEO of Kruger Products. “We are very proud to strengthen Kruger Products’ presence in Québec with this large-scale project that will provide significant benefits to the Estrie region. What’s even more exciting is that the local know-how will shine across North America with products distributed throughout Canada and in the United States.” See full story in the Tuesday, May 14 edition of The Record.
