28 Feb MPP Merrilee Fullerton Takes Informative Tour of M CON
Merrilee Fullerton, MPP for Kanata-Carleton was impressed by her informative tour of M CON Products’ facility on January 28th, 2020. Mrs. Fullerton commented on the size of the facility, the sustainability of the precast concrete products and the provision of local employment. Organized in conjunction with Canadian Concrete Pipe & Precast Association, the tour included an update about the concrete industry from Jude, Technical Resources Engineer, CCPPA, as well as a detailed tour of the 30-acre site which includes a 104,000 square-foot manufacturing facility.
MPP Merrilee Fullerton tweeted, “Thank you to M CON Products Inc. for your informative tour this morning. This local Carp business is a manufacturer of sustainable precast concrete infrastructure.”
Marco, Director of Operations, and Tim, Plant Manager, gave Merrilee an introduction to M CON at the main office building before showing her the manufacturing plant. “It was a pleasure touring MPP Merrilee Fullerton around our facility,” said Marco. “She was very engaged as we showed her the stages of manufacturing precast concrete products, from producing a cage, to pouring and curing the concrete, to storing the finished product. She asked astute questions and was surprised by the size of the plant, how much external storage we have, the amount of local jobs we create, and the contribution we make in the Ottawa region by sourcing local materials and supplying local construction projects.” The MPP was also shown the large array of product-handling equipment and vehicles in the yard, and presented with M CON branded merchandise.
