Valleyfield, September 22, 2004 - Drummond Designs Inc. announced today the opening of a 19th branch office in Valleyfield to respond to the growing demand for its products and services in the Suroit region.
The new branch office will enable Drummond Designs to increase its presence in the Suroît region, which has 43 municipalities and 190,000 residents, and allow all of the markets surrounding the island of Montreal to take advantage of its products and services. The company is also using this consumer demand as an opportunity to redefine some of its current territory in order to respond more specifically to the expectations and requirements of its growing clientele. The Suroît is an important component in such an initiative and it attests to Drummond Designs' desire to increase its presence in the area and the concerted development of the people that it serves.
Drummond Designs is looking at being involved in some 200 projects in the Suroît region alone over the next year. In the municipality of de Salaberry-de-Valleyfield itself (40,000 residents representing 21% of the Suroît population), the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) recorded 53 construction start-ups in 2003, excluding renovation projects.
