WINNIPEG, Man.– American-based ISCO Industries has chosen CentrePort Canada to be the site of its Canadian head office and newest sales, warehouse and distribution facility, as part of the company’s decision to expand its piping supply operations across the country.
The new CentrePort location will employ approximately 12 people at a retrofitted 3.5 acre site on Sturgeon Road. The Louisville, Kentucky company, which has more than 35 facilities in North America, Australia and Chile, is new to the Winnipeg marketplace, said a release.
“We are excited about the opportunity to continue to grow our global business and this property at CentrePort provided what we were looking for – access to the workforce, ease of transportation and a central location,” said Glen Henderson, Vice President and General Manager, Canada. “We also appreciate CentrePort’s assistance in helping us secure the rezoning approvals that were required for us to move ahead.”
“ISCO Industries is a really great fit and the type of economic activity well-suited for an inland port,” said Diane Gray, president and CEO of CentrePort Canada Inc., who worked with the company and realtor DTZ Winnipeg to help secure the site. “One of our main jobs is to roll up our sleeves and help companies find the location that works for their operation.”
ISCO Industries provides comprehensive piping materials and solutions for various environmental, energy, industrial, landfill, mining, municipal, golf, waterworks and culvert-lining applications worldwide.
