Redevelopment Plan & Progress

SSPM Pontiac, L.P., an affiliate of Green Investment Group Inc. (GIGI), purchased the former Smurfit-Stone mill in Portage-du-Fort in January 2010. This was the company’s second Smurfit-Stone mill purchased in Canada.

To date, GIGI has invested approximately $4 million in the site’s clean -up, reconfiguration and reorganization. Redevelopment and repopulation is well underway with the addition of numerous new tenants from the environmental, construction, engineering and communications industries already occupying the site.

The success of the site was confirmed in a resolution, dated October 26, 2010, introduced by the MRC, declaring the Green Investment Group site in Portage-du-Fort the “Pontiac Regional Industrial Park”. In October 2011, GIGI declared the site its official Canadian headquarters, solidifying the company’s commitment to bringing jobs and economic stability to the region and Canada.

Plans call for continued redevelopment of the site in collaboration with the community and local authorities as well as provincial and federal governments.
