Here we grow again! Here is the link to the story in the Milton Canadian Champion! Great news for the Greater Milton Area (GMA)!
Halton Region and the Town of Milton were on hand for a groundbreaking ceremony yesterday to celebrate the start of construction of Lowe’s Canada’s Distribution Centre at 3333 James Snow Parkway (West of Hwy. 25) in Milton.”We are pleased that Lowe’s Canada has chosen Halton as the home of its new Canadian Distribution Centre,” said Gary Carr. “Businesses continue to locate in Halton for two key reasons – quality infrastructure and high quality of life. These attributes are attractive to both skilled professionals and the companies they work for.”
The new 626,000 sq. ft. Canadian Distribution Centre is expected to provide more than 500 full and part-time jobs plus local construction jobs. Lowe’s Canada has entered into a long-term arrangement at the Milton site and has the capacity to expand the Distribution Centre by an additional 175,000 sq.ft.
Milton Mayor and Regional Councillor Gord Krantz welcomed the company’s new investment in Milton, noting “the addition of Lowe’s Canada to our business community will benefit Milton through assessment growth and new jobs created locally. A balance of residential and non-residential development is important for a stable and prosperous local economy.”
Founded in 1946, Lowe’s has grown from a small hardware store in North Carolina to a Fortune 50 company with thousands of employees – the second largest home improvement retailer worldwide.
