Factory expansion brings 265 new jobs to Gaspé, Canada

    Strong growth at LM Wind Power secures 265 new jobs in Gaspé and opens opportunities for wider collaboration with new customers.

    The expansion of our Gaspé factory, which last week received financial support of almost USD 5.7 million from the Government of Quebec, is clear evidence of how support for green industries can create new, highly- skilled and valuable employment. Our company is open to collaboration for future growth.

    The new investment, announced at the factory last Friday in the presence of three Ministers of the Quebec government, the Deputy of Gaspé and the Mayor of Gaspé, is a case study in how collaboration between government and industry can yield long term economic growth – especially in regions where a shortage of high value jobs and skills pervades.

    As part of a total investment, valued at more than USD 12 million, 265 new jobs will be created in a region where demand may grow and appetite for long-term, strategic employment is high, while growth is sometimes harder to achieve.

    “The key to success is the pragmatic and strategic view taken by all parties in the project,” said Alexandre Boulay, LM Wind Power Plant Director in Gaspé. We are hopeful of more demand in Canada as wind energy grows here and committed to delivering a return on this investment by developing the skills of all current and future employees in the region of Gaspésie-Îles de la Madeleine.”
