Saint-Damien, Que.-based injection molder and extrusion manufacturer IPL Inc. has been awarded a contract estimated at $7 million by Quebec City for the supply, assembly and delivery of 110,700 wheeled carts for recycling.
The delivery of the units will begin in November 2006 and continue over a 12-month period.
“We are very proud to have won this first major contract for Quebec City,” Serge Bragdon, IPL’s president and CEO, said. “This contract strengthens [the company’s] position as a partner of choice in the high potential waste handling sector.”
The order comes during a transitional period that has seen several management shake-ups at IPL over the past few months. In October, the company appointed Serge Mercier as vice president, operations; Gaston Lacasse as vice president, sales and marketing; and Marcel Riou as vice president, logistics and supply chain.
And in August, IPL announced several senior management appointments, including Eric Doyon as vice president, finance and chief financial officer; Denis Pageau as vice president, research and development; and Pierre Fradette as vice president, human resources and communications.
Headquartered in Saint-Damien, IPL employs more than 1,100 people in its four plants in Quebec and New Brunswick.
