BID Group, the North American leader in sawmill equipment manufacturing, automation, installation, and life cycle service, is pleased to announce its plans for a $5-million strategic capital investment to expand its St.-Ephrem, Que., facility.

The facility will grow by 18,000 square feet, representing a 35 per ent increase in manufacturing space. The larger area will allow for the assembly of the more complex equipment to meet growing demand. The expanded facility will contribute to increasing BID’s ability to deliver its comprehensive line-up of innovative technologies to its highly valued customers.

“We are humbled and honoured by the enduring trust from our customers whose successes are driving the need for these types of investments. We are excited to be expanding our presence in the Beauce region of Quebec and to be adding more high-quality jobs to our existing 450-person workforce,” said Adam Infanti, chief financial officer at BID.

Excavation will begin immediately, and construction will be complete in the fall of 2022. This expansion will create 30 new jobs, primarily for machinists, mechanics, and welders.
