Strongco Corporation has completed the purchase of eight acres of land that will be used to build its new branch in Saint-Augustin-de-Desmaures, Que.
The new branch will replace the existing Sainte-Foy location and will carry Volvo Construction Equipment products, as well as other complementary brands. Construction on the 40,500-sq.-ft. facility is scheduled to begin in the spring and is slated for completion in early 2014.
"This new branch will build on the longstanding excellent relationships with our customers in the area. Replacing our Sainte-Foy location with an updated and well-situated branch in Saint-Augustin allows us to provide more comprehensive and timely service to our customers," said Bob Dryburgh, president and chief executive officer of Strongco. "This new development is an integral part of Strongco's growth strategy to increase our market presence in key markets, such as Quebec by building on Strongco's reputation of delivering a superior customer experience."
The new Saint-Augustin branch will involve a total capital cost of $8.6 million.
