The 76,000-square-foot facility will play a crucial role in Creaform’s growth strategy in the years ahead. Built at a cost of $20 million, it triples production capacity and doubles the space available for the company’s fast-growing workforce.
R&D, manufacturing and assembly, engineering services, and administrative operations have all been relocated to the new building, along with part of the sales and support team.
Eco-friendly design features
In addition to upgrading its production infrastructure and technology, Creaform also incorporated green building techniques into the project to reduce the facility’s environmental footprint and create a luminous and welcoming workplace that qualifies for LEED certification.
The new facility at 4700 rue de la Pascaline has been in operation since November 20.
