Alpha Pre-Engineered Panel Expanding Operations To Meet Increased Demand

Alpha Pre-Engineered Panel Systems Inc. wants to expand its Clarington operation. The company manufactures raw and finished wood products for the building industry — including pre-engineered floor, wall and truss systems.

Alpha Pre owns two facilities in Clarington, one on Cigas Road and one on Baseline Road, and has approximately 170 employees.

The demand from the housing industry for Alpha Pre products means the company needs to increase production, according to a letter from Derek Frankfort, general manager of Alpha Pre-Engineered Panel Systems Inc. to Clarington council members. To increase production the company wants to build additions to both its facilities.

“Obviously, the planned expansions of both facilities will require increased plant and office personnel, and many local contractors to aid in the construction,” said Frankfort in his letter to council.

Alpha Pre wants to expand the Baseline Road plant with a 2,000-square-meter addition onto the adjacent lands to the east. The company already owns the land but needs to have it rezoned from Agricultural to General Industrial.
