Laminacorr Expands to New BuildingJuly 15, 2013
Cornwall Ontario – Laminacorr continues to secure new business, and when an opportunity presented itself to move into a standalone building, company President Guy Robichaud jumped on the chance.
Laminacorr has purchased a former 38,000 sq.ft. plastics manufacturing facility on Marleau Avenue in the Cornwall Business Park. Following a well-planned and executed move, the company is back at full operation, producing corrugated plastic products for a variety of uses.
“This new building is ideal for our needs,” says Guy Robichaud. “It has an excellent power service, several silos for raw material and the six acre site allows us room to grow in future.”
The new facility comes at the same time as a new generation is getting involved in the family-run business. Fiona Robichaud, Guy’s daughter, has joined the company. A recent Commerce graduate from La Cité collégiale, Fiona will be helping to explore new markets for Laminacorr, such as the logistics industry. Laminacorr’s corrugated plastic products last longer than cardboard, and are easily recycled.
“Our long term vision has changed now that Fiona is on board,” says Guy. “We are excited about building something together and taking Laminacorr to the next level.”
Laminacorr not only converts and laminates its plastic products for a variety of uses, it also makes its own plastic sheets following the purchase of an extruder a couple of years ago.
“Lamiancorr’s key strength lies in its vertical integration,” says Guy Robichaud. We engineer corrugated plastic products from conception to final production. We also re-process used product from our customers, making our company environment friendly.”
“Laminacorr succeeds in a competitive sector by adding value to the products it produces,” says Bob Peters, Senior Development Officer. “Mr. Robichaud is a strategic thinker that has grown his company while others have faltered.”
