MAGOG, QC, Nov. 18, 2011 /CNW Telbec/ - Fontaine, a company specializing
in the manufacture of gates and equipment for water and wastewater
markets, will consolidate the design and manufacture of its products to
other facilities within their global network of operations. This
transition, driven by challenging economic conditions and declines in
municipal project funding, is expected to occur within a three to
six-month time frame and will affect approximately 150 employees at the
Magog location. Fontaine management is committed to assisting
employees during the transition.
The Magog sales office will remain open and operational and Fontaine
will continue to service the needs of customers in Quebec, Canada and
international water and wastewater markets, with support from their
network of engineering and manufacturing capabilities worldwide.
Maintaining local expertise will allow Fontaine to continue supporting
customers with the highest quality products and services.
