ARC Canada hosts New Brunswick First Supply Chain Roundtable

 

Saint John, NB – On September 12th, ARC Nuclear Canada, Inc. (ARC Canada), will welcome New Brunswick companies from across the province to participate in the New Brunswick First Supply Chain Roundtable. ARC Canada is a technology company with its Canadian headquarters in Saint John.

In 2018, the government of New Brunswick made an investment in a nuclear research cluster to advance small modular reactor technology. From both government and private investments, ARC Canada has now developed plans for its supporting manufacturing and supply chain.

“Our goal with this event is to determine the level of interest from New Brunswick companies in manufacturing the ARC-100 small modular reactor technology,” said Norman Sawyer, President and Chief Executive Officer. “This project could result in the creation of a supply chain leading to substantial growth opportunities for New Brunswick companies. Our vision is to fully develop and implement a manufacturing and supply chain hub to build and transport our technology worldwide, from right here in New Brunswick. The talent is here, and this is a great opportunity for the entire province.”

The Supply Chain Roundtable event has been specifically designed to give New Brunswick companies an opportunity to get firsthand information on ARC Canada’s supply chain. The event will provide an opportunity for manufacturers, suppliers and contractors to gather in a forum to understand the ARC Canada vision for business growth in this sector.

Representatives from industry partners and the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission will hold sessions to provide participants with the most up-to-date information. This will allow businesses to build relationships with a range of potential future customers and partners. Furthermore, various levels of government will be present and providing their views on our vision.

Registration is now open and there is no fee to attend. Lunch and refreshments will be provided. For further information please email clandry@arcnuclear.com. To register for this event, visit ARCcanadaevents.com.
