The manufacturing industry contributes to a strong Atlantic Canadian economy and is creating good jobs in local communities. That is why the Government of Canada is helping Bursey Manufacturing Inc. in Conception Bay South, NL improve productivity to meet growing demand for its industrial tanks.
Federal investment helps local business scale-up
Ken McDonald, Member of Parliament for Avalon, on behalf of the Honourable Mélanie Joly, Minister of Economic Development and Official Languages and Minister responsible for ACOA, today announced a repayable contribution of $205,000 to Bursey Manufacturing Inc.
This investment will support a 3,600 square foot expansion of the company’s industrial tank manufacturing facility. With the upgrades, Bursey Manufacturing will be able to improve product quality and ramp up production to meet growing market demands.
Today’s announcement further demonstrates the Government of Canada’s commitment to help businesses in the manufacturing industry to grow and contribute to a stronger economy.
“The manufacturing sector is an important part of a diverse and growing Atlantic Canadian economy. Investments like this one help businesses similar to Bursey Manufacturing scale-up, accelerate their growth, and expand their markets – contributing to a stronger, more resilient, and globally competitive economy for all Canadians.”
– The Honourable Mélanie Joly, Minister of Economic Development and Official Languages and Minister responsible for ACOA
“Small-and medium-sized businesses like Bursey Manufacturing are the heart of our rural communities. We are pleased to support this local company, which has been part of the business community in Conception Bay South for almost 30 years. I look forward to seeing Bursey Manufacturing grow and create more jobs in the years to come.”

“We needed to expand our manufacturing capabilities in order to retain and gain new business opportunities. We wanted to be able to supply any local businesses within Atlantic Canada that wanted to buy from us, and an expansion was necessary to do that. After dealing with ACOA on past projects, they were the first people we contacted to see if they could help us on this new expansion.”
