Exceldor has announced that it plans to invest $35 million to build a new poultry distribution centre in Beloeil, Canada, in order to meet growing demand. Construction of the new facility will begin in spring 2018.
The company stated that the 135,000 sq. ft. site was necessary as its current facilities are currently working “at full capacity”.
“The distribution centre’s design will greatly increase effectiveness and optimise our processes. It will link our many production sites to the ultimate delivery to our customers,” said Exceldor’s president and chief executive officer, René Proulx.
“The vitality of the poultry market, combined with the quality and freshness of our products, makes for highly interesting business prospects.
“We are excited to launch this new chapter of growth with the commitment of our members and the dedication of our employees, with whom we have proudly collaborated in growing our organisation.”
