Lorneville Mechanical leasing E.S. Fox building

405 King William Road, Saint John

As reported by HUDDLE, Lorneville Mechanical Contractor’s Ltd (“Lorneville”) announced this week that they won a contract to fabricate large modules as part of an expansion at the Irving Oil Refinery. Although they’re manufacturing the components at their current facility in the Spruce Lake Industrial Park, they required additional space. The nearby E.S. Fox building located at 405 King William Road was vacant and on the market. They’re using the Fox building for their tooling group and for some material storage associated with the project. “Given the short term nature of the contact, it didn’t make financial sense to purchase the building but we were fortunate enough to be able to negotiate a 9 month lease of the facility” says Todd Bethune, Lorneville’s C.F.O. There were other ways to satisfy the requirement for additional space but the close proximity to Lorneville’s current facility made the E.S. Fox building an ideal solution and both sides were pleased to be able to hammer out a deal.  

The 24,000 sq ft facility with 54’ clear ceiling height sits on 27 acres of land and is ideal for large module manufacturing. It will continue to be marketed for sale or lease and will be vacated by Lorneville in early March 2018. For more information on 405 King William Road click HERE

“The Irving refinery spent $60 million in 2014 which employed 2,000 workers for a million hours. The turnaround was such a big event, it had a $51.6 million impact on New Brunswick’s GDP. This is in part because the many workers needed food, accommodation and other necessities, which benefited the local economy.” Source: www.canadianfuels.ca

This year’s turnaround, dubbed Operation Falcon #opfalcon, was just announced and involves a reported investment of $200,000,000! That’s over 3 times last year’s investment. This is the largest private sector investment in New Brunswick this year. The fundamental issue in determining the size of the economic impact is the “openness” (more…)
