Strongco begins construction in Orillia
By Strongco CorporationNews
August 4, 2011 - Strongco says construction has begun on its new branch in Orillia, Ont. The branch will be a leased facility.
Site work commenced on a 1.5-acre parcel of land in Progress Park on the outskirts of Orillia. The property is strategically located between Strongco outlets in Sudbury, Ont., to the north and Mississauga, Ont., to the south.
The new branch will be branded Volvo and will carry other, complementary brands in support of end user markets in the area.
"Orillia is an ideal location for a new branch in south-central Ontario to enable us to improve service to key customers and enhance our market position," said Bob Dryburgh, president and CEO. "We have a large quarry and aggregates industry customer base within a 50-mile radius of the city, particularly on the east side of Lake Simcoe."
Strongco expects to open the new, 10,500-square-foot branch in October and has started hiring key people.
