Cranbrook’s mayor received keys to the former Tembec lands Thursday.
The old mill site will become the home of C&C Wood Products.
C&C CEO Ted Dergousoff says his company has plans to re-purpose the facility for multiple products.
“While built for the purpose of making finger point studs,” Dergousoff says. “our intention is to the manufacturing process to make, engineered siding and trim. Fully built out we expect employ 17 to 20 workers per shift. I would like to thank the Mayor, Council, and staff, for all their efforts and making this opportunity possible”.
The facility is planned to be up and running early 2019.
The city secured the purchase of what was once a Tembec lumber mill back in August, after trying to purchase the property for over two years.
