Mirmil Products’ move to Northumberland County `great news for us’
Mirmil Products is moving its manufacturing facility from Quinte West to Campbellford, which is welcome news for Trent Hills, the municipality’s mayor said.
Mirmil Products is a custom architectural millwork company that caters to work in multiple millwork fields such as entertainment, gaming, institutional and multi-residential. Its current Quinte West facility is 64,000 square feet containing the latest equipment to accommodate a wide range of projects from laminate casework to high-end architectural millwork.
“It’s great news for us,” Bob Crate, Trent Hills mayor, told the Brighton Independent.
“Mirmil is a great employer to start with?and we’re really pleased with what’s happened.”
Mirmil will be setting up shop in the former Dart Cup plant, which closed unexpectedly in September 2019, putting 50 people out of work. “This will replace those jobs plus add a few more to it,” Crate noted.
The company will relocate all its manufacturing operations to the 165,000-square foot facility in Trent Hills. Operating out of its current location in Quinte West since the 1960s, it will move to the new space June 30.
Mirmil currently has about 70 employees. Company president and CEO Travis Walker said he expects to see that figure grow to more than 100 once the new facility is fully equipped and staffed.
“We’ll be looking for cabinet makers, machine operators, production associates, as well as drafting and engineering personnel,” Walker said.
“These are quality, full-time jobs, with a full benefits package and excellent working conditions, in a spacious facility with state-of-the-art equipment.”
Walker said the company is looking to partner with local high schools and post-secondary institutions to show young people the kinds of career opportunities available to them in the trades.
Mirmil’s products are used in hospitals and universities, high-end hotels, bars, casinos, stadiums and other public buildings across Canada and in the United States. Mirmil clients include Disney, MGM Resorts, Hard Rock Hotels and Yale and Harvard universities.
