Canada Bread

Will Canada Bread megabakery land in Hamilton?
TheSpec.com - BreakingNews - Will Canada Bread megabakery land in Hamilton?

Mark McNeil
City economic development officials say they will do everything they can to try to convince Canada Bread Co. to build a $100-million megabakery in Hamilton.

The Toronto-based company announced today it is looking at several area municipalities to come up with a 31-acre parcel of land to accommodate the country’s largest bakery, employing more than 300 people.

Canada Bread said it will be closing three aging bakery operations in Toronto. The company wanted to consolidate the operations under one roof in the Greater Toronto Area but could not find a suitable piece of land. So they’re looking further afield.

Company spokesperson Jeanette Jones would not say whether Hamilton is among the contenders or what other communities are being considered.

Neil Everson, Hamilton’s director of economic development and planning, doesn’t know whether the city is on the company’s short list.

“A plant this size, I think the city has to look at it. But there is going to be a lot of competition for an operation like that, especially in this economy.”

He says Hamilton has competitively-priced land available, transportation links, and affordable housing prices for workers. He says the city has 700 acres of “shovel ready” land on inventory, and he thinks Glanbrook might be a good fit.

But officials in Brantford have other ideas. That city has a “food cluster task force” that has brought in investments from 21 food manufacturers including Maidstone Bakeries, which produces Tim Hortons products, and the North American facility for Ferrero Group, an Italian food company. The sector accounts for about 2,000 jobs in the region.

Hamilton already has a Canada Bread bakery operation in Hamilton, on Nebo Road. More than 90 employees work there. But Jones said the Nebo site is not suitable for the new bakery.

All I can say is have a bus route in place or some cheap access by walking or cycling.
Come on City Hall, Brantford is eager.........

'Creative thinking' gets a $5.5-million boost

January 13, 2010
Eric McGuinness
The Hamilton Spectator
WATERDOWN
http://www.thespec.com/News/Local/article/703955

SunOpta BioProcess Inc. (SBI) of Brampton is getting $5.5 million from the federal government to demonstrate that it can turn wood chips into fuel-grade ethanol and the sugar substitute xylitol.

The cellulosic ethanol would replace gasoline, reducing greenhouse gases without using corn or other food crops. The Canadian-made sweetener would replace xylitol imported from China where it is made from corn. The process also produces lignin, which can be burned to generate electricity or used to bind other wood waste into fuel pellets.

The grant was announced by Lisa Raitt, Halton MP and Minister of Natural Resources, and by Vicky Sharpe, president of Sustainable Technology Development Canada, at the Opta Minerals plant on Parkside Drive in Waterdown. SBI has a pilot plant there that turns poplar chips from Bancroft into peat-moss-like fibres that go through an enzyme process to make sugars that are fermented to produce ethanol.

Raitt said the technology deserves assistance because: "It's a process that produces two valuable products at the same time -- a cleaner fuel and a healthy sugar substitute -- and they both come from wood chips, and that's what I call innovation, exactly the kind of creative thinking our government is proud to support."

SBI says its process uses 75 per cent less water than needed to make ethanol from corn. Funding for the $16.5-million demonstration plant will also come from Xylitol Canada and Emerald Forest Sugars Inc.

The company hasn't picked a site for the demonstration facility, but David Sweet, MP for Ancaster-Dundas-Flamborough-Westdale, quickly buttonholed president Murray Burke of Oakville to lobby for a location in Hamilton. Burke said the Waterdown site isn't big enough.

Xylitol Canada, majority owned by SBI, says it wants to be a low-cost, high-quality manufacturer of food and pharmaceutical-grade sweetener from readily available environmentally sustainable biomass.

The natural, low-calorie sugar substitute looks and tastes like sugar and is of equal sweetness. It's used in such familiar products as Trident gum, Altoids mints and Carole's low-sugar cheesecake -- the last of which Raitt sampled after her announcement. Xylitol is said to be diabetic-friendly and to have anti-cavity properties.

SunOpta, which owns 86 per cent of SBI, also owns OptaMinerals, a leading seller of industrial minerals, and a food group described as Canada's largest distributor of organic foods. It trades on Nasdaq (STKL) and the TSX (SOY).

Raitt and Sharpe yesterday announced another $52.5 million from SDTC for 15 other clean technology projects across Canada.

Recipients include a Vancouver-led consortium that plans to use genetic engineering to develop a non-food variant of mustard seed for biodiesel fuel production, a consortium including Ford Canada and Ballard Power Systems to improve hydrogen fuel cells for buses and an Ontario project to better sort and recycle waste plastics.

Hamilton chosen as site for megabakery

February 17, 2010
Emma Reilly
Hamilton Spectator
http://www.thespec.com/News/BreakingNews/article/723489

Hamilton will be the new home of a multimillion-dollar megabakery, officials announced this afternoon.

Canada Bread Co. has purchased a parcel of land in the North Glanbrook Industrial Park to build the country's largest bakery. The move is expected to bring 300 new jobs to Hamilton, as well as an extra 120 jobs during construction.

Gary Goodyear, the federal minister responsible for southern Ontario's Federal Economic Development Agency, was also on hand this afternoon to announce $2 million in design and engineering support for the project. The cash is intended to kick-start the project as part of the economic action plan.

The Toronto-based bakery expects to break ground on the factory in June and hopes to be partially operational in 2011. It will be fully operational in 2012.

Canada Bread will become the first tenant in the North Glanbrook Industrial Park, a 680-acre patch of land at the south end of Hamilton that has become one of the linchpins of the city's economic development plans. This is the first major deal for the park since 2005, when plans to open a $250-million Maple Leaf plant fell through amid great controversy.

In January, Canada Bread announced the closure of its three aging bakery operations in Toronto to consolidate its operations under one roof in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area.

Hamilton already has a Canada Bread bakery operation, on Nebo Road. More than 90 employees work there.

Canada Bread Company Ltd. is 89.8 per cent owned by Maple Leaf Foods Inc. It employs 8,500 employees in North America and the United Kingdom.

Bakery brings 300 jobs, feeds tax base

February 18, 2010
Emma Reilly
The Hamilton Spectator

A multimillion-dollar megabakery that will employ 300 people is coming to Hamilton.

Canada Bread announced yesterday it is building a $100-million, 375,000-square-foot bakery in the city's industrial park in Glanbrook.

The deal will create 300 permanent jobs, as well as an additional 120 spots during construction and 31 seasonal positions. It will also generate $1.1 million to $1.5 million in taxes annually and $2.5 million in development charges.

Mayor Fred Eisenberger made the announcement yesterday afternoon with MPs Dean Allison, David Sweet and Gary Goodyear, minister of state for science and technology, whose portfolio includes southern Ontario's Federal Economic Development Agency. Goodyear was on hand to announce a $2-million injection into the project for design and engineering support as part of the government's economic action plan.

Hamilton approached Canada Bread in December after the company announced it was looking for a new home in a municipality west of the GTA. The deal progressed quickly once Hamilton threw its hat into the ring, said Tim McCabe, general manager of planning and economic development.

"We had our first meeting in January and we wrapped the deal up a week last Monday," McCabe said.

Council unanimously approved the land sale at a special closed-door meeting just before the announcement. It was the first some councillors had heard of the plan.

Hamilton was chosen from among several municipalities because of its Golden Horseshoe location, its skilled workforce and the park's proximity to major highways.

Ian MacPherson, Canada Bread's vice-president of human resources, also said the company is familiar with the city as it operates two other factories here, on Nebo Road and in Stoney Creek.

"The choice to locate in Hamilton -- well, quite frankly, it was easy for us," MacPherson said.

The bakery will produce white and brown bread, rolls and tortillas, mostly Dempster's brand, on seven production lines. The first line will open next year, with all seven fully operational by 2012.

The company will close its three aging bakery operations in Toronto to consolidate its operations under one roof in Hamilton. The 500 employees at those plants will be offered spots in the Hamilton facility first. The remaining jobs are expected to be filled by local residents. The average income will fall between $45,000 and $65,000.

Canada Bread will become the first business in the North Glanbrook Industrial Park, which, now that it has its first tenant, will be renamed the Red Hill Business Park.

The 25-acre patch of land purchased from the city by Canada Bread is in the same spot its parent company Maple Leaf pursued back in 2005, though that deal was for 55 acres. Maple Leaf walked away from its proposal for a $250-million pork plant after seeing a lack of political and community support.

The cost of the land deal was not disclosed.

Eisenberger said he doesn't expect the same type of community opposition this time around.

"That was then, this is now," said Eisenberger. "We've developed a great relationship with this company, and it's all worked out very spectacularly."

The city now hopes the Red Hill Business Park will become a hub for food production. Canada Bread has already told the city their suppliers will be interested in locations close to the bakery.

From the city's perspective, this is great news as far as getting a new tenant for the Red Hill Business Park. It's good to see the area starting to be purposed as was originally intended. And the new corporate tax revenue stream into the city coffers will be welcome.

From a broader perspective, this isn't really a feel-good job creation story. Sure, there will be 300 jobs located here, but the three plants that this will be replacing currently employ 500, so we are really looking at a net job loss of 200 positions. Since the 500 losing their jobs will get first crack at the positions at the new plant, it remains to be seen how many (if any) of the 300 positions will be filled by locals.

Tire recycling plant planned for Hamilton

February 26, 2010
Steve Arnold
The Hamilton Spectator
http://www.thespec.com/News/Business/article/728692

Hamilton could become the tire recycling capital of Canada under a plan unveiled by a pair of local entrepreneurs.

Len Lottridge and Mike DiCenzo are planning a tire retreading and recycling plant to be located on Hamilton Port Authority land that, when it's fully in operation, could bring as many as 500 jobs.

"Nothing is in place yet, but this is a very labour-intensive industry so there's the potential for a lot of jobs here," Lottridge said in an interview. "We're talking about a substantial investment here."

The men estimate they could recycle up to 1.2 million scrap tires a year.

Under the name Evergreen Resource Recovery, Lottridge and DiCenzo are proposing a company that would retread tires that still have some road life left and chop up and recycle those that can be used for products such as blasting mats and Astro Turf. The rest will be put through a process called pyrolysis that uses intense heat to break each ton of tires down into about $650 worth of oil, carbon black and other products.

The process, they say, could generate gross profits of almost $370 per ton.

"It's a very basic system," Lottridge said. "We can break it right down to the original materials."

Under the deal, Lottridge's retreading company, T&T T&T Corp., will supply the equipment for the retreading operation while Ukraine-based Coral Group provides pyrolysis technology.

Pyrolysis itself is not new -- what the Ukrainians have added is a cutting machine to chop the tires into uniform squares, making the process more efficient.

If it works, it promises a chance to make some progress on a pressing environmental problem. In Ontario alone, the provincial government estimates up to 12 million tires are disposed of every year. About four million are shipped to companies in Quebec and the U.S. for processing, another six million are recycled by Ontario firms and the rest end up in one of about 95 enormous stockpiles around the province.

"Until now, it has been very costly to get the basic rubber out of an old tire," Lottridge said. "It's not necessarily cost-effective, it's something people have done for the environment."

DiCenzo, who spent 25 years as a combustion engineer at Stelco before getting into the tire business, said the rising cost of new tires, and government levies on them, are making retreads more attractive to consumers. "The timing works for something like this now," he said. "Now we can sell as many retreads and we can produce."

DiCenzo said the total investment for the proposal will be in the range of $160 million, to be raised through investors and government grants.

"We're just waiting for a commitment on the federal funding support now," he said.

The proposed plant would be located on Port Authority land at 450 Sherman Ave. N. Hamilton Port Authority spokesperson Brent Kinnaird said in an e-mail response the HPA is talking with Evergreen but a lease has not been signed.

'No strings attached'
Battaglia new to telecom market

July 24, 2010
Steve Buist
The Hamilton Spectator
http://www.thespec.com/News/Business/article/813193

Property developer, airport operator, even part-owner of the Hamilton Bulldogs hockey team at one time.

Now, Tony Battaglia hopes to conquer the rapidly evolving world of telecommunications.

Battaglia is the president and CEO of a small, Hamilton-based phone company called talkit.ca, which is offering a full year of home telephone service for $59.99, including unlimited long-distance calling across Canada.

"I knew nothing about the airport industry and I learned pretty quick," said Battaglia, the founder and former chair of TradePort, the company that operates Hamilton's airport.

"Now we're teaching him the phone business," chuckled Victor Rossetani, founder of talkit.ca and the company's vice-president of sales and marketing.

"Business is business," Battaglia added simply. "I bring my strengths to the table.

"I'm more of a business manager and my partners certainly know the phone industry very, very well and the technology side of it. It's a good team and we expect great things in the future."

Talkit.ca is one of a growing number of Canadian companies offering telephone service through the Internet, using so-called VoIP technology -- Voice over Internet Protocol.

The company, with downtown headquarters on Main Street West, currently has nine employees and about 2,000 subscribers.

Without the need to establish expensive infrastructure, VoIP phone service providers typically offer subscribers a cheaper alternative with a larger range of add-on features than the traditional phone companies such as Bell.

Subscribers to talkit.ca purchase an adapter that connects to an Internet modem, with a spot for a regular phone to be plugged in.

In addition to unlimited Canada-wide calling for an annual fee of $59.99, subscribers receive free features such as call waiting, call forwarding, three-way calling, caller ID and a feature that allows voice-mail messages to be transferred as e-mail.

The adapter actually has two telephone jack spots, so subscribers who run a home business, for example, can purchase a second line for another $59.99 per year.

Battaglia said some subscribers have bought a second adapter and sent it to relatives in another country.

"Now they can both have a Canadian phone number and call each other all they want for free," he said.

All of this sounds too good to be true, he's told.

"We get that an awful lot, but it is absolutely true," said Battaglia. "In fact, you'll see our catchphrase below the logo is 'No strings attached.'

"There are no strings attached," he said. "It is what it is.

"We're offering it at a very low rate because we want to grow market share. We can do it at that price because we don't have a huge infrastructure like a lot of the other telephone providers do."

There are skeptics, however, including Jon Arnold, a Toronto-based telecom and VoIP expert who wondered aloud how talkit.ca can offer unlimited Canada-wide calling with so many features for such a low price.

"The problem is when you come in so cheap, there's nowhere to go but up," said Arnold. "There's no upside to coming into the market so cheap, and there's no need to because nobody prices it that cheap."

Arnold called it a "desperate strategy."

"Customer acquisition costs are what keep companies like this out of the marketplace," said Arnold. "It's just too hard to score people off other carriers.

"This isn't about generating new subscribers for phone users, it's about stealing them from somebody else."

It's kind of a misleading story. You may only have to pay $59.99 per year but you still have to have a high speed internet connection. It would be cheaper to get a Majic jack at only $30 per year plus the internet.

New nuclear centre will be built in Hamilton
Jay McQueen
10/5/2010


Ground will be broken today on a nuclear centre of excellence in Hamilton.

The facility will be built on Dartnall Road and will serve the Canadian and global nuclear industry.

Emerson Instrument and Valve Services's 22-hundred square meter operation will produce high quality valves and control equipment for the nuclear industry.

Dr. Neil Alexander -- the President of the Organization of CANDU Industries says this is a great example of investment coming into Hamilton to drive us forward into the future.

He also says it will create new jobs and new opportunity.

That is pretty awesome. We need a lot more of those specialized manufacturing industries. Good news for Hamilton's tax base.

Now if only the area had public transit that at least, well, existed, I'd be lining up for a job.

The HSR does seriously underserve the mountain, but there are two routes that serve the site: 22 Upper Ottawa and 43 Stone Church.

Hopefully this city will one day realize reliable HSR service needs to be city-wide and will put a couple more buses on the mountain.

Car-wise, it's a breeze to get here via the LINC/RHVP.

Well here's hoping some form of higher order transit finds its way to that business park in the next millenium if that's where the jobs are going to be. T-line, the very last of the BLAST? There's something wrong with the picture if I have to commute longer to work within my own city than outside of it.

They are expanding tho, so it's just not a shuffling around of jobs.

New Solar Panel Assembly Plant To Be Built In Hamilton
Joint Venture With Chinese Company Creating Up To 300 Jobs

http://www.news.ontario.ca/opo/en/20...-hamilton.html
November 9, 2010 12:45 PM

An Ontario company is forming a joint venture with a Chinese partner that will create up to 300 jobs at a solar panel assembly plant in Hamilton.

JNE Consulting and Chinese-based Daqo Group Co. Ltd., are building the $5 million project, expected to be completed within two years. JNE signed the agreement during its recent visit to China as part of an Ontario trade mission featuring companies in construction and engineering.

The Green Energy Act is making Ontario a world leader in the clean energy industry, helping to attract investment, create jobs and clean the air we breathe. In recent months, Ontario has attracted over $1 billion in private sector investment and created more than 1,400 construction jobs through clean energy investments.

Attracting clean energy manufacturing plants is part of the McGuinty government's Open Ontario Plan to build a clean energy economy that creates jobs and protects our environment.

Awesome! Hello, jobs!

Now here's crossing my fingers that they'll build it somewhere bike or transit accessible.

from the stoneycreeknews.com:

Quote:
Hamilton is getting about 300 clean technology jobs in a $5 million deal with a Chinese company.

Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty announced the joint venture deal Nov. 9 between the Hamilton based JNE Consulting and the Chinese Dago Group Co. Ltd that is expected to be completed by 2012.

“We are talking about 300 jobs in the exciting new Ontario clean tech industry,” said McGuinty at JNE Consulting’s office on Shaw Street in Hamilton’s north end. “It means 300 moms and dads who will have these jobs will be able to look their kids in the eye with hope and optimism.”

The project, forged by JNE Consulting in a trade mission to China four years ago, could include manufacturing jobs in Stoney Creek. JNE Consulting is part of the Joe Ng Group of Companies that employ up to 400 people in 20 countries. It maintains offices in Hamilton, U.S. and China.
And from the press release:

Quote:
"JNE Consulting is delighted to announce this joint venture with China's Daqo Group Co. Ltd. With its skilled workforce and excellent transportation links, Hamilton is the perfect location for this project, supported by Ontario's forward-looking approach to becoming a North American green energy leader."

– Joe Ng
President of JNE Consulting Ltd.

It appears that the Spec is oblivious to the Premier being in town to make the announcement. More than three hours after the announcement, still nothing on their site.

I was expecting the location to be a greenfield in Glanbrook. I am shocked they actually picked an inner city site. Awesome news.

edit: after reading more thoroughly, thats just where the press conference was held. I hold my optimism.
