Hason Steel and the Port of Trois-Rivières have reached an agreement for the construction of an oversized parts assembly plant for the petrochemical industry. Some forty permanent jobs will result from this project. The new project will be part of the development of the industrial-port zone of Trois-Rivières.

The port of Trois-Rivières, with close proximity to the construction site, was the logical choice for Hason. The company will carry out its reactor assembly operations at its new plant, and transport modules to the port to ship them assembled to customers around the world.

“By shipping its reactors in one piece by boat, Hason sets itself apart from its competitors, offers added value to its customers and is able to access new markets. We are proud to be a key part of this innovation,” said Gaétan Boivin, President and CEO of Port of Trois-Rivières.
