CFN– South Stormont Township has made a pitch to R.W. Tomlinson for them to locate a Concrete plant that was rejected by Brockville Ontario on a property that they feel would meet the company’s criteria and is already zoned appropriately.
South Stormont is always focused on bringing strong economic development to our growing community.
In talking with Mayor McGillis he shared that South Stormont had some choice locations for growth and expansion.
The plant and the approximately 40 jobs that would come with it don’t seem to be exciting to Cornwall Economic Development officer Mark Boileau according to media reports.
The Tomlinson Group applied to have a 44 acre parcel in Brockville rezoned, but was met with community activism in rejecting the proposal which ideally would be near or on the waterfront.
Ralph Tomlinson founded R.W. Tomlinson Cartage in 1952 with one single-axle dump truck. Incorporated as R.W. Tomlinson Limited in 1969, the company is now a prominent player in quarrying, construction, trucking and environmental industries, with a large fleet of company-owned vehicles in Eastern Canada.
