Prelco expanding Montreal location
Prelco currently has three main fabrication locations for the commercial market, one in St-Jacques, N.B., and two in the province of Quebec: one in Riviere-du-Loup and another one in Montreal. This fall, it began expanding the facility in Montreal in order to get closer to its main markets and thus serve customers better and faster. Prelco is building a brand new section of 47 000 sq.ft. and installing a state-of-the-art tempering furnace and increasing insulating glass capacity. These new pieces of equipment will be in operation in May 2019.
The company is also building a new plant for Veralex, its leisure boat windshields division. The building will be built in Princeville, Que.
Lastly, Prelco is expanding its building located in Rouses Point, N.Y., where it serves the transportation market.
“Overall, we anticipate a contribution to the creation of several jobs between now and the end of 2019,” said Nathalie Thibault, architectural sales director.
