PG Hardwood Flooring announced that it is transferring all of its production to Saint-Édouard-de-Lotbinière, Quebec. As part of the move, PG will cease operations at its plant in Beauceville, Quebec, on Dec. 1. According to the company, some of the employees at the Beacueville plant will be transferred to the one in Saint-Édouard-de-Lotbinière.
PG purchased the Beauceville plant in 2002 to offset a lack of production capacity. At the same time, a major restructuring program has been underway at the Saint-Édouard-de-Lotbinière plant to increase production by 33 percent while using less raw material.
“It is with immense satisfaction that we were able to exceed the goals established at the very onset,” said General Manager Jérôme Jobin. He added that production improvements will bring PG's annual capacity to more than 22 million board feet.
