NOHFC funds to help create 30 jobs at Interconcrete

The province is helping Greater Sudbury-based Interconcrete Ltd. expand its concrete batch plant through a $1million investment, Sudbury MPP Rick Bartolucci announced Wednesday.

With support from the province’s Northern Ontario Heritage Fund Corporation (NOHFC), Interconcrete Ltd., which supplies ready-mix concrete, is building an enclosed concrete plant to allow for winter operation, as well as a warehouse for storage and machine repairs.

The project will create 30 jobs in Greater Sudbury, Bartolucci said in a release.

“Our investment is helping the company expand its operations and be better positioned to undertake larger projects,” he said. “I am very pleased that the NOHFC could support these entrepreneurs as they grow their business and create jobs in our region."

Supporting business expansion is part of the government’s economic plan that is creating jobs for today and tomorrow. The comprehensive plan and its six priorities focus on Ontario’s greatest strengths – its people and strategic partnerships.

“We are continuing to help build Northern Ontario’s private-sector because we recognize that business expansion is a very significant job creator and a key contributor to economic diversification,” Bartolucci said.
