Chalk up business #51 that has located in Bruce, Grey or Huron Counties, in preparation for Bruce Power's Major Component Replacement (MCR).

The latest facility has located in Tiverton.

Nuvia Canada has not only set up an office in Tiverton, it's taken over an entire small strip plaza, that will also serve as a training centre for the business.

An official ribbon cutting ceremony was held at the site on Tuesday, March 26th.

CEO Arkell Farr says Nuvia is known for providing well experienced Radiation Protection Technicians for nuclear outages and refurbishments.

Farr says no matter where the company is operating in Canada, Tiverton will be the hub for training purposes going forward.

He says they've already trained some 60-students to start at Bruce Power in preparation for the MCR and the outgoing outage support.

Farr says they will have a staff of 12 to manage the Tiverton site and training centre.

President and CEO of Bruce Power Mike Rencheck says for people who don't have the skills or interest to enter university, Nuvia will provide what he calls "a good pathway to the trades."

By the numbers, Rencheck quotes a recent Ontario Chamber of Commerce report that says the 51 business that have come into Bruce, Grey and Huron counties have enabled about 300 small businesses opening, with about 250,000 square feet of industrialized space being used that was previously under-utilized.
