Nova Scotia paper manufacturer gets $11 million in provincial help


The Nova Scotia government has announced just over $11 million to help a manufacturing business in Hantsport purchase new machinery and upgrade its equipment.

The province will lend CKF Inc. $8.7 million toward a planned $16.5-million upgrade and expansion and will provide another $2.6 million in incentive grants over the next year, as the company completes the capital upgrades.

The government says the expansion is expected to create 30 new jobs.

The company, founded in 1933 by businessman and entrepreneur R.A. Jodrey, manufactures a wide range of moulded pulp and foam products for retailers, food service operators and the packaging industry.
