A global engineering firm that has its roots in Canada, has expanded its offices in Port Elgin.
Hatch is a key supplier of services to Bruce Power and its refurbishment that is underway.
Hatch Global Director for Nuclear, Amar Jolly during an Open House at its new offices in south Port Elgin, says they've been in the community since 2016 but outgrew their original office space.
In the old building they had room for 8 but a staff of 12.
They are now situated in the Giant Tiger plaza, where the former Bruce County Chiropratic and Care Centre was located and have room for up to 30 employees.
Jolly says right now, they have 12 on staff and a couple of more working on site at Bruce Power.
In a prepared media release, Jolly says "We are here to stay and grow."
He says as exciting as the new offices are and working with Bruce Power, the most satisfying aspect is being part of the Saugeen Shores community is giving back to the community.
During a ribbon cutting ceremony on Tuesday, December 4th, Hatch made a $1,000 donation to the Bruce County Museum in Southampton and toy donations were made to Saugeen First Nation and the Chippewas of Nawash toy drives.
Congrats to @HATCHglobal on your new (expanded!) space in Saugeen Shores. Thanks for having me! It's always so great to connect with my friends at Hatch. 😊 @BethBuckmaster @amarisjolly pic.twitter.com/QnfwZxRM0T— Jessica L (@JessLint) December 5, 2018
