Quebec-based Manulift continues its rapid expansion in Ontario with the opening of a new $ 10 million operating center in Hamilton, in the Greater Toronto Area, which will increase its number of employees to more than 300.

After opening its first office in Toronto a few years ago, the company with sales of more than $ 100 million goes into high gear with the opening of an operational center with an area of 30,000 square feet, intended for customers from the construction sector as well as the mines, the agricultural sector and even automobile racing.

New contracts are in addition to others already held by Manulift in Ontario, notably for the Canadian Armed Forces and with the Crosslinx Transit Solutions consortium, which is currently building the Eglinton Crosstown light rail, at a cost of $ 8.5 billion, which will cross Toronto from east to west, starting in 2021.

“The expansion will allow us to accelerate the growth of our sales and bring Manulift’s annual business volume to $ 200 million,” said the president and chief executive officer of the company, Martin Drolet.
