It was my pleasure to welcome Minister of Economic Development, Job Creation and Trade Vic Fedeli to Belleville Feb. 1, alongside my colleague Daryl Kramp, MPP for Hastings-Lennox and Addington to announce a pair of $500,000 investments through the Eastern Ontario Development Fund.
At Sprague Foods, top, the investment supported $5.6 million in private investment to support new equipment and the construction of a new storage facility. These projects will increase productivity and sales into new markets. It is expected to create 14 jobs.
At Ontario Truss and Wall Ltd. the investments supports $8.4 million in private investment to expand to two new product lines not currently produced in our region. The project will include a new 24,000-square-foot facility. At least 23 jobs will be created.
