How many employees are at Grizzly Industrial?
Posted On May 26, 2021
2,000 employees, including 2,200 workers in Grizzly’s main production building.
3,000 people working in the production facility in the industrial park.
The facility’s only commercial tenant, the city of Saskatoon, operates two industrial farms, one of which employs about 100 people.
“Grizzlies is very important to the city and I think a lot of the things that are happening in the city right now, and the people that we have to work with, I think Grizzly will be there to be able to help us continue to be successful,” said Mike Crouch, the mayor of Saskastown, Sask.
Crouch also works with Grizzly on a number of projects, including a pilot project with the city to redevelop the area around the industrial complex.
“We are going to get there and we’re not going to be there tomorrow, but we’re going to try,” he said.
“I’m hopeful that we can continue to keep the community in Saskatoon safe and secure, because we’re very proud of what we’ve accomplished here.”
As for the city, it’s the first time in the province it’s looking at a potential industrial expansion, but Crouch said the city has been considering expanding its own industrial base.
“It’s a big opportunity to be in that industrial park,” he told reporters.
The city says it’s also looking at moving into industrial farming, although Crouch has said there are no specific plans for the future of the city’s farmhouse.
“There are a lot things we’re looking at, but the reality is we don’t have a clear plan yet,” he explained.
In the meantime, Grizzly has a plan for its future, though not necessarily in the form of an industrial farm.
The company is still looking at ways to expand its industrial footprint, with a view to adding additional facilities to the current production and production-like facilities in Grizzley’s main facility.
Grizzly also has other industrial projects underway, such as a small-scale manufacturing facility that could become Grizzly Industries’ largest facility.
“As we look at what we can do, the bigger we are and the more we can grow, the better we will be as a company,” said Crouch.
“That’s really what it’s all about.”
