Kruger Products to expand Trenton facilities
By Cindy Macdonald
Kruger Products is undertaking a multi-million dollar expansion at the company’s Trenton plant. The tissue manufacturer will install state-of-the-art equipment and set up eight new production lines.
The project has a total value of up to $52 million and is expected to be completed by the end of 2019. It is expected to create 119 new jobs.
“We are excited about growing our Trenton plant and expanding our export opportunities. This project will significantly bolster our production capabilities and set us up for years of growth to come,” said Mario Gosselin, CEO, Kruger Products.
The company will receive a loan of up to $10 million through Ontario’s Jobs and Prosperity Fund. The loan will help the company expand its commercial division and boost its market share in the United States.
The local television station in Trenton reports that Kruger will be bringing almost 200 workers from its Mississauga plant to the Trenton location.
