Non-medicated livestock feed and supplement company Jefo has announced its plans to build a new, 200,000 square foot production plant in the Théo-Phénix Industrial Park at Saint-Hyacinthe, Quebec.
The construction of the facility is valued around $30 million, and will be built on land acquired last year adjacent to other Jefo Group facilities, which include a transportation company, a trans-shipment site, research centres for poultry nutrition, warehouses, a production plant, and Jefo’s headquarters.
“We aim to generate one billion dollars in revenue by 2025, so this project is necessary to support our current growth and ambitious goal. In addition to increasing our production capacity, the new production plant will reduce the risk of producing in a single facility,” says Jean-François Fontaine, vice president of the Jefo Group.
Phase one of construction consists of two two production lines, with potential expansion to six lines, which the company says should translate in to the creation of 20 new jobs in the near future and 60 in the long run. The company’s current production plant has four lines that generate more than 5,000 tons of animal feed additives annually, and are marketed in more than 80 countries.
