Bio-Amber Construction Update

Despite a two week delay due to harsh winter weather conditions, construction is moving along well at BioAmber’s new $125-million bio-succinic acid facility in Sarnia.

Its expected 60 permanent positions will be created when the plant starts up in January 2015.

Executive Vice President Mike Hartmann says the hiring process is already underway.

Hartmann says they are still looking at the possibility of expanding capacity by 40 per cent in the future.

The Montreal-based company is also considering Sarnia as a site for a second manufacturing facility to be built in 2017.
