An electronics contract manufacturer and design services company in Dieppe – CE3 Electronics Inc. – will add up to 25 jobs to its full-time workforce as it moves into a new facility next year.
“Our number one priority is creating jobs that will keep New Brunswickers working in this province while making life better for their families,” said Premier David Alward. “We are pleased to invest in CE3 Electronics’ growth as well as the creation of full-time manufacturing jobs that will benefit Dieppe and its surrounding communities.”
The company is consolidating two existing manufacturing facilities in the Dieppe Industrial Park into a state-of-the-art space to accommodate its expansion efforts. Invest NB is providing a non-repayable, conditional grant of up to $200,000 and a $300,000 forgivable loan in support of capital costs. The investment is expected to add $1.3 million to New Brunswick’s gross domestic product once all 25 full-time jobs have been created, which is expected to be completed over a three-year period.
“We began discussing the option of making a significant investment in New Brunswick about a year ago, and Invest NB was immediately responsive to our challenges and needs,” said CEO of CE3 Electronics Inc. Scott Maxwell. “Our company is experiencing phenomenal growth and has already begun hiring staff. We look forward to moving into our newly-designed facility in 2015.”
CE3 Electronics manufactures industrial controls, power supplies, computing and data collection devices, event recorders, GPS and lighting.
