UPS expands Atlantic Canada presence with addition of N.B. facility
DIEPPE, N.B. — UPS celebrated the opening of its Dieppe facility with a formal ribbon cutting ceremony today. UPS began pickup and delivery services for its customers in Greater Moncton on April 23.
“We have been in Greater Moncton for more than 18 years; expanding our brand presence and global network to the business community was a natural step for UPS,” says Shelley Gares, director of operations for Atlantic Canada. “We are committed to providing the same quality of service and safety standards to the region that we are known for across the globe.”
“The City of Dieppe is very proud to welcome UPS to our municipality,” says Yvon Lapierre, Mayor of Dieppe. “The world-renowned company is known for its quality service and reliability and their presence in Dieppe is a further testament to our dynamic business approach and our strategic location.”
The expansion represents a multi-million dollar investment and approximately 250 new UPS jobs in Atlantic Canada, 100 of which are within Greater Moncton.
“The Greater Moncton community has been very supportive of us throughout the years,” says Gares. “As part of our legacy, we will continue to show our support and give back to the people and businesses that have been so good to us.”
Six additional cities in the Atlantic provinces will be added to the network later in the year, in addition a Halifax, N.S. location which opened at the end of May.
