Concrete and steel manufacturer needs skilled workers, including welders, electricians, millwrights, engineers and machine operators
A Barrie-area company is looking to add 100 new employees to its operations.
The firm, Munro Ltd., has the country’s largest steel and concrete manufacturing plant, and is recognized around the globe as a pioneer in advanced manufacturing techniques and the use of robotics.
“Supporting the significant hiring needs of surrounding communities is of strategic interest to the City of Barrie,” says Mayor Jeff Lehman. “All area communities will benefit from Munro’s ongoing growth. It’s great news for residents of Barrie, Essa, and our region as these are high-quality industrial jobs, available immediately.”
Growth in the infrastructure sector, as well as new product development and innovation, is driving the need to expand Munro’s plant to nearly 445,000 square feet, and increase its employees from the current 250 to 350. The plant is located in Utopia on 100 acres on Simcoe Road 56, Essa Township.
“In order to deliver and expand on our current projects, we need to ramp up our staffing very quickly,” says John Munro, president and CEO of Munro Ltd. “We are seeking highly-skilled, motivated machine operators, engineers, millwrights, welders and electricians to join our team and make a career at Munro Ltd.”
The expansion is good news for Essa, said Mayor Terry Dowell.
“Munro Ltd. has been a long-standing quality employer in our community and we applaud their commitment to their employees and contribution to the township’s economy.”
