Maibec Inc. has acquired Cedar Balmoral Ltd., a manufacturer of Eastern white cedar shingles located in Balmoral, New Brunswick.
Despite being the largest manufacturer of Eastern white cedar shingles in North America, Maibec says the growing demand for its natural and stained cedar shingles has been outpacing its production capacity in recent years.
"A growing number of homeowners and builders, particularly those in the U.S., are turning to Maibec Eastern white cedar shingles," said François Tardif, President of Maibec. "This acquisition will allow us to keep pace with this increased demand and to develop new markets."
In the coming months, Maibec plans to upgrade manufacturing practices in the Balmoral mill to ensure it is operating at peak capacity and producing quality shingles worthy of the Maibec name. This new production will gradually be added to that of Maibec's Eastern white cedar shingle plants in St. Pamphile and St. Theophile, Quebec.
