Leclerc, a North American leader in the snack food manufacturing industry, is seeking a strong Plant Engineer to join its most recent production plant located in Cornwall, ON and which is due to begin production in the spring of 2019.
Leclerc, a thriving family company, manufactures snack bars, crackers and cookies for distribution to more than thirty countries all over the world. For more than 110 years, Leclerc has successfully balanced innovation, freshness, and good taste, pleasing customers of all ages. For the past decade, Leclerc invested in its Canadian facilities, two in Saint-Augustin-de-Desmaures and one in Hawkesbury, with state‑of‑the‑art production equipment. While these three plants are destined for growth in the near future, our success warrants further expansion of our production capacity in Canada, which translates in this strategically located facility in Cornwall, Ontario. Just like Leclerc’s seven existing plants (4 are in USA), this future production site will be high-tech and devoted to some of the niche products Leclerc proudly prepares for its clientele.
This career opportunity within our group is an amazing opportunity for the right candidate to join an experienced and high-level team, yet be a key member of a brand-new leadership team locally.
