CIMC Refrigerated Trailer Company plans to build another production line in Sarnia this summer.
The first refrigerated trailer rolled off the assembly line at CIMC’s new plant on Ube Drive last year.
Chief Operation Officer Alex Wang told Sarnia News Today that with the company’s development, another production line will be created with a focus on truck body manufacturing.
“The production line layout has [been] designed, and we have started to purchase equipment and tools since last month,” said Wang in an emailed statement. “We will install this production line around August and start to build [the] truck body from [September].”
However, the production schedule will depend on whether or not the shop is ready on time.
The company is renting a 33,000 square foot shop, located next to its current facility, for the new product. About 40 people will be needed for the new production line.
The China-based company announced plans to build its first Canadian manufacturing location in Sarnia-Lambton back in 2020.
There are currently about 85 employees. Read More – Blackburn NewsPosted in: Community News Outlets, Headlines, Home Page Alert, SLEP News
