Canarm Consolidation Announcement

68

Canarm AgSystems is consolidating Shakespeare operations (Faromor – A Canarm Company) into our Arthur facility and transferring agricultural  fan production to our Brockville location.

Faromor- A Canarm Company is a leading manufacturer of natural ventilation with a history dating  back to 1978. Today, Faromor has become an icon for natural ventilation systems
worldwide, by strongly promoting and emphasizing product development, improvement and
continually adding to their product offering. To date, this has all been done from the Shakespeare,  Ontario facility.

Canarm AgSystems, is an Arthur, Ontario based manufacturer of ventilation, housing and technology  solutions for barns. Financially strong, uniquely diverse, and proudly Canadian, Canarm AgSystems  has been a trusted supplier to hog, dairy, and poultry farmers for over 80 years.  In August 2019, Canarm Ltd. acquired Faromor. This new partnership resulted in enhanced product  lines that brought the best of both to the agricultural ventilation industry.

Our Brockville site currently produces Industrial/Commercial/HVAC products housing the manufacture  and distribution of our Canarm Commercial Ventilation products, our LFI Commercial/Industrial Axial  Fan products and Delhi Blower products.

Over the coming months, Shakespeare operations will be consolidated into our Arthur facility. We will  continue to manufacture the same quality products that you have come to associate with the Faromor  name. These include all of our current natural ventilation products, including curtain, ridge and panel  systems. Agricultural fans currently being made at our Arthur location will relocate to our operations in  Brockville, Ontario.

This consolidation of our Shakespeare and Arthur facilities will increase our manufacturing efficiencies, as well as provide us with an opportunity to streamline and to further improve our customer service  levels.

Staff at the Shakespeare operations are being offered positions at the Arthur facility. Their expertise  and professionalism will be welcomed at their new home. We will work closely with everyone to make  the integration process as smooth as possible.

We will build inventories ahead of demand to ensure a seamless transition, which will take place over  the next several months. In the meantime, our customers will continue to receive the same highquality service that they have come to expect.
