Press Release, April 25, 2013
Pencor Developments Inc. and its affiliate Barrineti Construction Ltd. broke ground today on the first development in a new business park in Leamington. Innovation Park, located on County Road 18 west of Highway 77, is comprised of 42 acres of zoned and shovel-ready land. Tony Barraco, owner of Barrineti Construction said, 'This development has been five years in the making and we are happy that the first building will soon be underway. The broad zoning allows us to work with a wide range of commercial and industrial clients and we hope to have a compatible mix of business locate here in the next few years."
The first development will see the construction of Uni-Fab Enclosures. Construction will commence on their 32,000 sq. ft. facility for the fabrication of specialty industrial metal products. This initial building will be mirrored by a second building within the next two years allowing them to double in size. The company, owned by Neil Sawatzky and George Bergen, is not new to the region. George Bergen said, "This development will allow us to expand our workforce and client base by being more innovative with more automated equipment to stay competitive in today's market."
Leamington Mayor John Paterson was on hand to help with the groundbreaking. He remarked, "This is a proud day for Leamington. We are happy to welcome Uni-Fab Enclosures to the community and wish them every success. Pencor Developments and Barrineti Construction have made a big commitment to Leamington and I applaud their confidence.
