Québec Government supports Trois-Rivières improvements

(Posted on 11/11/19)

The Government of Québec confirms that it will provide $2,492,595 in financial assistance to the Trois-Rivières Port Authority for the development of an

outdoor storage space, a multi-purpose shed and an oversized equipment warehouse. The

Minister of Transport and Minister responsible for the Estrie region, François Bonnardel, and the

Minister of Labour, Employment and Social Solidarity and Minister responsible for the Mauricie

region, Jean Boulet, made the announcement.

The Port of Trois-Rivie?res offers a wide range of facilities and services to the maritime industry. The Port is an important player in regional, national and international economic development for major industrial sectors such as the aluminum industry, forestry and agri- food.

The new warehouse will allow Hason to operate a receiving, storage and assembly unit for its

oversized products and export these overseas. The project will create around 40 quality jobs.

“The development of a storage space, a multi-purpose shed and an oversized equipment

warehouse will directly contribute to the development of the industrial-port zone of Trois-Rivières.

Our Government is proud to invest in improving the port's marine transportation services and

support regional economic development,” said François Bonnardel, Minister of Transport and Minister responsible for the Estrie region

Jean Boulet, Minister of Labour, Employment and Social Solidarity and Minister responsible for

the Mauricie region said, “Hason’s operation of a storage and assembly unit in Trois-Rivières will stimulate the local and

regional economy and create quality jobs in the Mauricie region. I am therefore very proud that our

Government supports such a project and this shows the importance of the Port of Trois-Rivières

as the economic engine of the Mauricie region.”

“As a key player in the development of the industrial-port zone of Trois-Rivières, we are proud of

this new partnership with Hason. Thanks to this project, the port and the city of Trois-Rivières will

benefit from an increased international influence, which will bring significant benefits to our

community. The Government of Québec, the City of Trois-Rivières, Innovation and Economic

Development Trois-Rivières and the industrial-port zone’s stakeholders have made a vital

contribution to the realization of this major project,” said Gaétan Boivin, President and CEO of the Port of Trois-Rivières

“Hason is very proud to continue its growth in Trois-Rivières. The choice of Trois-Rivières was

made possible not only by the Port’s proximity and the continued support of its team through our

partnership, but also by the quality of the workforce present in the region and the range of

services available. This new plant will enable Hason to reach new markets through the use of

marine transportation, increase its exports and better serve its existing customer base while

generating significant benefits for the local economy,” saidDenis Blain, President and CEO, Hason Steel Products Inc.
