Maple Armor to manufacture fire alarm system at new Quebec plant
$30 million investment will create 70 jobs once operational by the end of 2015.
SAINT-BRUNO-DE-MONTARVILLE, Que. — Solutions D’alarme Incendie Maple Armor Canada Inc. is investing $30 million to build a plant to manufacture fire alarm systems and create 70 jobs in Saint-Bruno, Que., on Montreal’s south shore.
The China-based company expects the plant to be operational by the end of 2015.
The company said it chose to set up shop in Quebec because of its qualified labour force and its easy access to new export markets.
“Initially, production at the new Maple Armor plant will be destined for the Chinese market, because of its strong demand for certified fire alarm systems. We then intend to diversify our export markets,” said Gelin Zhang, vice-president of Maple Armor.
Maple Armor Canada is part of Beida Jade Bird Universal Fire Alarm Devices Ltd., a subsidiary of the Chinese company Beida Jade Bird Group.
