Press release: Intersand
Stéphane Chevigny, president of Intersand Canada Group, has recently announced the acquisition of 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, thus positioning the company as the second largest manufacturer of private labels in North America.
“The addition of this plant represents a significant asset for our group,” Chevigny said. “Its geographical position gives us the opportunity to maintain quality service for local customers and to take advantage of numerous business opportunities both in the Canadian and international markets.”
The Intersand Canada Group, which celebrates its 30th anniversary this year, has implemented solid business strategies that have allowed it to grow and strengthen its position as a world leader in the animal hygiene sector. This new acquisition offers an exciting expansion opportunity that will continue to prioritize Intersand’s retail customers and pet parents at the heart of the company’s strategic decisions. And, the new Etobicoke-based plant’s team, including 36 employees, will now join the Intersand team.
“Our teams are excited by the many opportunities created by this addition of talent and skills,” Chevigny added. “Because we take the respect of our staff to heart, it was essential to ensure that Etobicoke employees have the security of their jobs. We will therefore work in close collaboration with this new team so that each member feels welcomed, listened to, and appreciated.”
