The company plans to invest $35 million in the new facility.
LEVIS, Quebec – Canadian poultry processor Exceldor will invest $35 million in a new 135,000-sq.-ft. distribution center in Beloeil, Quebec.
Construction on the new facility will begin in spring 2018 pending prior approval from the city of Beloeil. Exceldor will own the new facility and will select a specialized logistics company to manage day-to-day operations.
“The distribution center’s design will greatly increase effectiveness and optimize our processes,” René Proulx, president and CEO of Exceldor, said in a statement. “Destined to become a veritable logistical nerve center, it will link our many production sites to the ultimate delivery to our customers.”
Levis, Quebec-based Exceldor is a poultry processing cooperative with revenues of approximately $700 million. The cooperative operates production facilities in Saint-Anselme, Saint-Damase, Saint-Bruno-de Montarville and Saint-Agapit as well as in Hanover, Ontario. Exceldor processes 1.5 million air- or water-chilled poultry and turkeys per week for retail, foodservice and secondary processing.
