Creaform to move and expand its headquarters
The company plans to double its sales and open 150 new job positions in Lévis, QC within the next 5 years.
Creaform is expanding. The 3D measurement technology company has announced that it plans to move its headquarters to a new expanded location at Lévis’ Innoparc in order to support its growth.
This $20 million investment will help the company triple its production capacity and and hire a significant number of new employees. The new facility will double the size of Creaform’s existing building, increasing from 38,000 to 76,000 sq. ft.
The company’s management unveiled Creaform’s future site in front of all its employees. Established for the past 10 years on rue Saint-Georges in Vieux-Lévis, Creaform’s headquarters includes its research and development, product manufacturing and assembly, engineering services, sales and marketing, and administration.
Creaform partnered with Groupe Commercial AMT to work on the project of transitioning to its new headquarters. Mr. Jacques Tanguay, President of Groupe Commercial AMT, will have the honor of making the first dig in Creaform’s highly symbolic groundbreaking ceremony.
Creaform has been growing rapidly over the last couple of years.
“And we have no intention of slowing down. Our goal is to double our sales within the next five years,” explained Mr. Martin Lamontagne, Creaform’s Co-Founder and Vice President and Business Unit Manager. “We needed to expand our headquarters in order to increase the production of multiple new 3D technology platforms.
Creaform was initially founded Lévis, which was a major decision why the company decided to invest in the town.
“Creaform will continue to support Lévis—our hometown that gave us a chance and remains today the ideal location for our company to thrive,” said Mr. Lamontagne. The site was chosen for its proximity to Québec City’s major roadways and services.
Creaform will be moving to its new headquarters, situated at 4700 rue de la Pascaline, in November 2017. And Creaform is current recruiting for over a dozen job positions in Lévis.
