SYDNEY, N.S. (CP) - A Cape Breton company plans to build a new manufacturing facility, expand its export business and create up to 139 new jobs over the next five years.
Protocase Inc. announced plans Monday to erect a new building in the Harbourside Commercial Park with the help of a $1.2-million loan from the province.
GrowthWorks Atlantic Venture Fund is also investing $1.1 million in the $2.65-million project.
Protocase began manufacturing steel cases for electronics six years ago.
It currently has 30 employees and has outgrown the old building.
