Wolf Steel Ltd. is expanding its Barrie production facility — the manufacturing home of the complete range of Napoleon products — to accommodate growth and demand in home heating and cooling and backyard grilling.
The facility, located on Napoleon Road, will grow by 300,000 square feet and is projected to create 200 direct and indirect new jobs over the next five years.
The announcement of the expansion coincides with the launch of Napoleon’s new Heating & Cooling Division and their ultra high efficient furnace line-up — the only gas furnaces designed and manufactured in Canada — and the donation of $100,000 worth of furnace products to Habitat for Humanity.
“Napoleon truly is a Canadian success story,” says Dave Coulson, marketing manager. “With this expansion, we are not only expanding our Canadian presence, but we are also firmly establishing our brand as a strong corporate community partner and economic engine.”
On Tuesday, Oct. 11, there will be an official ribbon-cutting ceremony and announcement of the expansion. In addition, the new 9600 Series furnace.
