Kinectrics has officially opened it's new Teeswater facility which will provide laundry services to Bruce Power.
The 40,000-square-foot facility is on set on nine acres of industrial property and will create 15-20 new jobs within the year and will look to double that in the future.
In 2017, Kinectrics celebrated the opening of the cornerstone of its expansion, a 37,000-square-foot facility at the Bruce Energy Centre, near the community of Tiverton in the Municipality of Kincardine. Taking into account these facilities, Kinectrics has invested more than $50 million in Bruce County initiatives over the past few years.
David Harris, Kinectrics' President and CEO says "this community provides an outstanding platform to grow our business both with Bruce Power and our clients worldwide. We look forward to providing long-term employment for the next generation of workers as we support world-class nuclear operators like Bruce Power."
The location will also be used to facilitate the medical isotope work the Nuclear Power site is producing as it works on the advancement of an Ontario-based supply of the life-saving Isotope Lutetium-177, and with its partner Framatome will design, supply and license an isotope production system enabling large-scale production of Lu-177 to meet future market demand.
Lisa Thompson, Minister of Government and Consumer Services and MPP for Huron-Bruce, also congratulated Kinectrics on its expanded presence in the region.
"This is indeed great news for the community of Teeswater and for Bruce County," Thompson says.
"The Life-Extension Program underway at Bruce Power continues to be a driving force in our local community and the work being done at Bruce Power is drawing companies like Kinectrics to the region, creating good jobs, new investment and ensuring Huron-Bruce and our province are open for business."
