Kingsey Falls, QC – Cascades Inc. will have a new Information Technology Centre as of December 2003. The 23,000 sq. ft. building will regroup Cascades’ in-house software development for its operations worldwide.
Cascades presently uses many in-house computer systems to oversee its day to day operations in such areas as accounting, production, logistics, human resources, as well as its Internet and Intranet sites.
Mr. Laurent Lemaire, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated: "We believe that the concentration of expertise in software development will generate important savings due to the synergies created by simply regrouping our employees presently located in our various production facilities. This centre will also be a valuable asset to the Company’s growth."
The new facility will be built at an estimated cost of $3 million and will be located in Kingsey Falls. The building will house over 125 work stations, 12 meeting rooms, 3 training facilities and a data center. Construction is scheduled to start this week and Cascades has mandated the firm of Morin Lemay Ct, Architects, to design of this centre.
More than 60 employees will move into the new centre in December
