Intersand Canada Group recently acquired the manufacturing assets of VersaPet, in Etobicoke, Ontario, Canada.
This new plant now allows Intersand to increase its production capacity by more than 100,000 metric tons per year.
“The addition of this plant is a major asset for our group,” said Stéphane Chevigny, President. “Its geographic position gives us the opportunity to maintain quality service for local customers and to take advantage of numerous business opportunities on both the Canadian and international markets.
The Intersand Canada Group, which celebrates its 30th anniversary this year, has implemented solid business strategies that have enabled it to grow and strengthen its position as a world leader in the animal hygiene sector. This new acquisition provides an opportunity for expansion that will continue to prioritize Intersand’s retail customers and pet owners at the heart of the company’s strategic decisions. In addition, the new Etobicoke plant team of 36 employees will now join the Intersand team.
“Our teams are excited about the many opportunities created by this addition of talent and skills,” added Chevigny. “Because we take the respect of our staff to heart, it was essential to ensure that Etobicoke employees had job security. We will therefore work closely with this new team so that each member feels welcomed, listened to and appreciated.
