SNC-Lavalin has had a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the second time in less than two years in Port Elgin.

The firm has moved to a bigger office to accommodate a new expansion.

The engineering firm has moved from an office that had room for 12 employees to a space in Port Elgin Square, across from McDonald's that will house 30-employees with the capability to expand to 75.

Executive Vice-President of Nuclear for Lavalin, Bill Fox says their move to the new 12,000 square foot facility, will help them better serve Bruce Power's Life Extension Program.

President and CEO of Bruce Power Mike Rencheck says it's exciting to see the expansion happen.

He says the move means a lot as Bruce Power gets ready for its Major Component Replacement program in 2020.

Fox says Lavalin hopes to hire locally and they welcome Indigenous interest as well.

Saugeen Shores Mayor Luke Charbonneau says, "Our community is encouraged to see businesses like SNC-Lavalin flourishing and we look forward to their continued work in the region."

Services at the office will include design engineering; engineering change control process work, along with integrated work with Bruce Power on technical solutions and project management.

The ribbon cutting ceremony took place on Wednesday (July 17).
