Arctic Glacier has announced the grand opening of a state-of-the-art, high-capacity production facility in Dorval, QC. The manufacturer of packaged ice says the new production facility represents a $5.3 million investment and enables the company to expand service throughout the province of Quebec and eastern Ontario.

Arctic Glacier’s new Dorval facility will double the ice company’s previous facility’s production capacity and increase their storage capacity by 500 percent. During peak season, the new facility will employee 40 people and offer additional employment and business opportunities throughout the province. The new, fully automated facility came online in July and is currently scaling up to full capacity.

“We are very excited to open our newest facility in Quebec and honoured to continue our legacy of supporting the province’s businesses,” said Richard Wyckoff, president and CEO of Arctic Glacier.

“Investments in innovation is foundational (for) Arctic Glacier and is just one of the ways we continuously create value for our customers, our employees, and the communities where we operate.”

The ice company has long-standing partnerships with hundreds of Quebec locally owned and family operated businesses. “We selected Dorval for our new facility to maximize our service throughout the province and to advantageously nurture our partnerships with the province’s locally owned distributors and ice companies,” said Jeremy Spencer, regional president of Arctic Glacier for Canada.
