Composite manufacturer expects move to generate $8M in additional revenues.
SAINT-ÉPHREM-DE-BEAUCE, QC – Sigma Industries Inc. has announced the creation of 50 direct jobs and about 15 indirect jobs at the René Composites Materials Ltd. facilities located in Saint-Éphrem-de-Beauce and Sainte-Clotilde-de-Beauce.
The company says the new jobs are the result of a decision to further specialize its operations components production using a closed mould manufacturing process that produces higher quality finished products, and reduce cycle times and raw material losses. Certain heavy-duty truck components will also be transferred to René’s facilities, which was previously carried out at Sigma’s US facilities in Ohio, a move that’s expected to generate added revenues of $8 million.
Sigma says it intends to shut down its US operations once the transfer of operations is complete.
