Value Added Manufacturing
The advanced manufacturing sector is quickly strengthening and charting a new economic course for the Miramichi region. The area is committed to increasing export and collaborative opportunities by attracting new businesses and developing existing companies. Smart choices build on our pure, natural potential to develop a new model for sustainable success. The region will continue to build on successes and create new opportunities for not only existing enterprises but also those businesses and industries who want to call Miramichi home.
Miramichi has achieved success in the following sectors:
- Cranberry giant Ocean Spray has created a new regional hub
- A cluster of land based defense companies that include DEW Engineering and Cormer Defense, has been established in Miramichi
- Northern Energy Solutions will develop 220 cubic meter pellet plan.
As Canada’s largest supplier of peat, the province of New Brunswick, and specifically the Miramichi region, is ideally placed to take advantage of the potential of bioproduct and pharmaceutical uses for this resource.
For industry, the City of Miramichi offers property incentives for the development of value added wood, fabrication, biofuels, woodpellets, fibre products and chemical extraction. We have reliable energy at 13% lower cost than U.S., with high-energy uptime.
The Miramichi is proud of its current compliment of 7 metal industries, including award winning Sunny Corner Enterprises and Modular Fabrication, that employ 1,025.
