Polykar, Canada, announced plans to construct a new state-of-the-art plant in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.

This second facility will add 30 million pounds of production capacity to all product lines and expand the company’s reach and expertise to serve the retail, commercial and institutional sectors. FarMor Architecture, Canada, will design the 50,000-square-foot facility.

The proposed 3-acre site in the Discovery Business Park, on the south side of Edmonton adjacent to the Edmonton International Airport, features a dual plant model that will allow the company to offer faster delivery, bolster production capacity and build and retain manufacturing capability in the region.

“This is an important milestone for Polykar, and we look to the future with confidence, as we continue to develop innovative and sustainable products,’’ says Amir Karim, president and CEO. “We are excited to finalize the plans for our new manufacturing facility in Edmonton in the coming months, and bring ourselves closer to our valued suppliers and customers in Western Canada.”
